Microsoft Training Courses
Have you ever wondered how to create business documents, presentations, spreadsheets and other company files and templates?
Even though Microsoft software applications are universal in the modern world and on most people’s desktops, not everyone can use them to their full extent.
It’s like playing the guitar – just because someone can strum a few chords and play a couple of easy songs doesn’t mean that they can actually perform more difficult songs or solos, let alone jazz or classical music pieces.
Likewise, each of us can type in Word or create a simple PowerPoint presentation, but who can really make use of all complex functions in Excel or efficiently store information in Access?
That is why Microsoft computer courses are the best way to learn some of the more advanced features of these powerful programs.
Indeed, our Microsoft computer training courses allow our participants to engage, interact and get constructive feedback, all of which have proved to be invaluable.
Moreover, if you participate in the best Microsoft training courses, you will most certainly take your skills to an advanced level. Again, you probably know how to use Word for simple tasks, but can you build a template in it?
There are numerous features that not many people can teach you appropriately. We assure you that you will be surprised when you find out all the features and functions of these seemingly simple software applications, let alone when you learn how to use them effectively.
Do you need to analyse and store data, summarise expenses or quickly sort and filter a list?
Microsoft Excel is used for precisely this purpose. If instead, you need to create business documents such as reports or letters, Microsoft Word is the leading word processing software on the market. For your next presentation, PowerPoint is the way to go, and it’s likely that you already use Microsoft Outlook to organise your email, scheduling, and contacts. If you are using Office 365, then you already have these tools at your fingertips.
You can add digital note-taking to your toolbox by using OneNote for your meeting notes and research. Microsoft Visio is used to create professional looking business diagrams such as flow charts and organisation charts, while Microsoft Project will help you to set up and manage your next project, and Microsoft Access is used to store and manage large data sets. Finally, to help make all this information available to your team and allow for true collaboration, use Microsoft SharePoint.
Beginner to Advanced Microsoft Training Courses
Some of our courses are aimed towards beginners, while some of them are more advanced courses.
Accordingly, in our introductory courses, we teach participants how to use basic functions of these programs, whereas our advanced Microsoft training courses are designed to suit those users who already have a solid foundation of skills.
However, what we can say from our extensive experience is that there is always something new to learn. Whatever your current skill level is, rest assured that you will walk out of the training room with far more knowledge and confidence than you had before the course.
In addition, we have designed courses that are focused on specific aspects of a software application, such as Pivot Tables in Excel or templates in Word. This way, our participants can choose to learn only those features that they really need.
Our participants always walk out of the classroom feeling confident of their new skills. Our approach is professional, yet friendly and personalised. We are proud that our clients consistently rate our courses as among the best Microsoft training courses they have attended, if not the best.

Microsoft Access is a flexible database application that is used to store information for reference, reporting, and analysis purposes. Microsoft Access can help you analyse extremely large amounts of information, and it manages related data more efficiently than Microsoft Excel or other applications.
Microsoft Excel is perhaps the most important software application used in business today. Excel spreadsheets are excellent for working with business information. Data is inserted into individual cells in rows or columns, which can then be used for both simple and complex calculations using formulas.
Microsoft Office 365
With Office 365 you have access to your Office applications from anywhere at any time. Log in with your Office 365 account and everything is there ready to go, all your Office applications and much more.

Microsoft OneNote is a digital notetaking application that allows users to type or add handwritten notes, drawings, audio recordings, file attachments, screen clippings, and video. It’s an application most people have but don’t realise the benefits. At Keystoke Learning we like to describe Microsoft OneNote as the best application you’ve never used!
Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager which is part of the Microsoft Office suite. Although it is primarily used as an email application, Outlook also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager and note taking tools. Users can quickly create appointments and meetings, add contact information, and set up tasks to assist with time management.
Microsoft PowerPoint is used to create professional looking slideshows that can be displayed on projectors or big-screen TVs. During a presentation, PowerPoint slides are used as backdrops to reinforce the key points made by the presenter and to add visual information. Slides can also be sent to attendees to provide extra information before or after the presentation.
Microsoft Project is a project management software application that displayed information in a Gantt chart. It is used to develop project plans, assign resources, such as employees, tradespeople or developers to tasks, track progress, maintain schedules and analyse workloads.
Microsoft SharePoint is used by companies for intranets, document management, employee collaboration, process automation and much more; all centralised through a single comprehensive platform. It is customisable, so a business can build the specific tools required within SharePoint.
Microsoft Word is a word processing program used to create various business documents. Part of the Microsoft Office Suite, it is the standard for all word processing programs on the market due to the wealth of features and tools it contains. Word can be used to create letters, memos and reports.
