Course description

Microsoft Office Bootcamp: Excel, Word and PowerPoint. From Basics to Advanced practical usage

Organizations assume that all of their employees have a solid understanding of Microsoft Office programs, namely Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Unfortunately, the reality is that many people were never given the opportunity to properly learn this software beyond some of the basic functions.

The purpose of this course is to provide a user-friendly and interactive journey to getting a strong and practical understanding of Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for people who have been hired on or promoted into roles that require a healthy understanding of Microsoft Office suite of programs: Excel, Word and PowerPoint. The idea is to take the participants on a journey through all 3 levels, to ensure that there are no gaps.

  • The opening “Basics” section focus on introducing the software and review of basic options.
  • The next “Intermediate” section builds on basic knowledge and increase overall understanding.
  • The final “Advanced” section targets more complex problems or usage of the software.

Lori Guitard
The course was very informative and I liked that it focused on all levels throughout the training. The instructor delivered the material very well and answered all questions throughout the course. Overall, I would recommend this training. Great job!
Carmine Ciriello Comment:
Thanks for the kind words Lori - much appreciated!
Paige Davidson
I found this course to be a good review of concepts that I already had knowledge on, especially for WORD. The beginner Excel was explained far too fast for me. It was difficult to grab the simpler concepts in order to carry them over to the intermediate and advanced. All in all a decent course.
Carmine Ciriello Comment:
Hello Paige and thanks for the feedback. I apologize that the beginner Excel module was not delivered at the appropriate speed, and that this caused the overall Excel content to be weakened. I have made a note of this. We'll make some changes in time for the next offering, including more touch-points and in-parallel exercises.
Stephen Skjonsby
Great practical help for someone in the business! The only thing that maybe beneficial for the next round is doing the course over 4 morning or afternoon sessions with practical worksheet examples that can be followed along. It was great to have a refresher and provided me with some great tips to be more productive
Carmine Ciriello Comment:
Hi Stephen, and thanks not only for your feedback but also for your active participation during the course! I will definitely keep those suggestions in mind for the next offering.
