More about PowerPoint Training Courses

Microsoft PowerPoint Training CoursesLearn the functions of PowerPoint and start giving powerful and engaging presentations that make the most out of visual aids. All too often in professional presentations presenters just pour all of their information into PowerPoint slides, neglecting to spend any time or attention on how to best use the program. Courses in PowerPoint instruct learners in a number of extremely useful functions, including:

  • Slide transitions
  • Formatting and visual effects hints and shortcuts
  • Embedding images and videos into PowerPoint presentations
  • Tips on not over-using visual effects
  • Learn PowerPoint as part of a course in presentation skills

PowerPoint provides a fantastic medium for building and delivering professional presentations. However, as they say; with great power comes great responsibility and an abused, overstuffed PowerPoint presentation can indeed be a painful thing to behold. Just as important as making sure a presentation is covering all the necessary material is resisting the urge to crowd it with bullet points and long lists. Not only does this undermine the purpose of a visual aide but it also tends to lead towards reading directly off of the PowerPoint.  Find a course in using PowerPoint as a visual aide and learn how to engage the audience and maintain attention during a presentation.

Save time and simplify your work!

One of the primary benefits to working with PowerPoint is the ability to clearly and cleanly layout the entire structure of a presentation. In this way PowerPoint is useful not only as a platform for presenting information, but also for outlining and organizing it. By taking a course in MS PowerPoint it’s possible to speed things up even more by learning shortcuts for building presentations. By creating customized templates, all future presentations can have the same basic information and watermarks, saving countless hours in formatting and design. Find a course that highlights creating templates and learn how to take advantage of this capability.

Intermediate and advanced courses in PowerPoint

Once you have a handle on the basics, unleash the full potential of this powerful program with an intermediate or advanced level course in PowerPoint. Gain the skills for a number of formatting and design techniques. Intermediate courses generally include:
