Microsoft PowerPoint Courses

PowerPoint is the presentation package of choice for many people. It can produce dynamic slideshows that can be printed, shown onscreen or even online. We have two levels of Powerpoint.

All levels can be customised or combined to suit your requirements or we can write a course specifically for you! (Standard course outlines are for a one-day course.)

PDF versions of the Course Outlines are available – contact us.
