Microsoft Word is a widely used commercial word processor that allows the user to create and edit both simple and sophisticated documents. It is equipped with templates and wizards to help you create useful documents such as resumes, letters and fax cover sheets. Microsoft Word offers several features to ease document creation and editing, including:

  • WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) display. It ensures that everything you see on screen will appear the same way when printed or moved to another format or program
  • Spell check: Word comes with an built-in dictionary for spell checking


Course contents for standard courses are shown below. Alternatively courses can be tailored to your own requirements. The course content and exercises can be adapted so that they are built around your own documents and specific business requirements. 


Word training courses are offered at foundation, intermediate and advanced level and in versions 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 and can be delivered onsite at your company premises or in a local office in Basildon, Benfleet, Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Clacton, Colchester, Harlow, Romford, Southend  and all other areas of Essex.
