* Microsoft PowerPoint Training Workbooks
Our Microsoft PowerPoint workbooks take you through step by step exercises to learn basic and then more advanced skills. We’ve crafted this course to ensure that students are on a constant learning curve until they develop intermediate skills.
*Microsoft PowerPoint Training Videos
The Microsoft PowerPoint training videos replicate the information in the workbooks so you can learn using multiple methods (and choose the one that suits you best).
* Microsoft PowerPoint Exercise Files
One of the best ways of learning is to receive existing files and modify them as you need. This will often help you maintain a solid flow of points as well as keep to corporate design principles. Companies will often have their own design templates as we will demonstrate with you.

Our Microsoft PowerPoint knowledge review tests form the basis of the Certificate of Completion and give you an understanding of the important aspects taught in each section within each course. You’ll be able to tick your skills off and build confidence in using the software.

Microsoft PowerPoint Online Training Course Outline
Microsoft PowerPoint (401) Beginners’ Course
Start creating great looking presentations within two hours. This module takes you through the fundamentals of slides, the outline pane, notes pane, plus slide transitions and how to navigate through and control a presentation.
Once you understand the basics of Microsoft PowerPoint, this course will show you how to format text and all the contents of text frames, how to select multiple frames and apply broad formatting, understand bullet formatting and how to customise bullets and change indenting using the ruler. You’ll learn about using tabs in PowerPoint (slightly different to using Microsoft Word) and also Format Painter to repeat existing formatting much faster.
Once you know frames you can use PowerPoint as a publishing or image editing program to create logos and graphics — even advertising for websites and social media.
Microsoft PowerPoint (402) Beginners’ Course
You’ll insert a Microsoft PowerPoint chart and see the why this is more beneficial than copying and pasting a chart from Excel (much better for visually showing different components of the graph to your audience).
You’ll learn how to use the Outline Pane to create a PowerPoint presentation quickly, and the function of promoting and demoting as well as re-arranging various parts of a presentation.
Understand how to use Slide Sorter to arrange the slides in your order of preference. Also learn how to give a presentation a professional appearance quickly with the use of Design Templates. These can also be created for companies so that all presentations have a consistent look and feel.
Microsoft PowerPoint (403) Intermediate Course
In this course you’ll learn about slide masters and how you can change them to instantly modify the look and feel formatting of your existing and new presentations. Large corporations use design templates that are based on slide masters and when they make a change to their corporate branding they use these tools to ensure that all departments use the new designs uniformly in their presentations.
You’ll learn about headers and footers (for inserting project names and logos), as well as automated features of PowerPoint presentations like the transitions between slides as well as the animated effects you include within a slide (down to paragraph by paragraph and object by object animation effects). You’ll learn about group elements and moving them together or separating them and you’ll learn how to insert and manage multimedia files like audio and video within the presentation.
You’ll also learn about different ways you can print out your presentation to give your attendees something to take with them. In this final PowerPoint course we include the steps you’d take to turn your presentation into an online training course.
