Microsoft Visio Courses

Visio is a tool to create diagrams and flowcharts whether simple or complicated. We offer two levels of courses for Visio.

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.)
