Microsoft PowerPoint Beginners to Advanced Certificate Training Courses
Presentation & Design Software
Microsoft PowerPoint is the dominant global leading software for presentations and unlike Word Processing software like Microsoft Word which used character editing as it’s main structure formatting, PowerPoint uses a frames structure which enables you to put any type of frame anywhere on a page and reorder and re-arrange them until you are happy with how it looks – great for graphic design and layout.
These frames can be text frames and images and even audio and video files but most people use the software as a slide progression from one page/slide to the next.
Learn the fundamental basic Microsoft PowerPoint presentation skills for free and then decided if you’d like to learn from home at your own pace with all the training tools and exercise files you need.
The frame structure gives PowerPoint the flexibility and power to place any image or text anywhere on the page. This appeals to people who prefer to present their information visually and many Microsoft PowerPoint users simply use a heading and then a set of bullet points and perhaps an image and focus on using the presentation software to take their audience on along a story about what they are trying to share.
The Microsoft PowerPoint course includes PowerPoint files that you can download and keep and include sample business and sales presentations, education slides about investing in shares and some fun presentations which include animations and sounds.
Real Business Case Study: Water Filter Cooler Presentation
Chilled and filtered water is common in most offices for the pleasure and health of staff and customers but years ago bottled water was the only option.

You’ll see how this business used a progressing slide show to display information about the benefits that everyone agrees on and then highlights just how convenient, safe and cheap filtered water filter systems are compared to buying bottled water.
