Word 2016 Basic


Microsoft Word is a word processing software. Well, if we’re getting real, it’s THE word processing software. And it’s more than likely the only one you need to know about. This course will start at the very basics. We’ll introduce you properly. You’ll shake hands, you’ll say your names, you’ll tell each other an interesting fact about yourselves.

Then, we’ll show you how to create, save and share documents. There’s no better time than now. Or perhaps you’re just moving to the newer Word 2016, and could do with a little knowledge update. Either way, we’ve got you covered.


We know you want to learn all about Word 2016, but we also know that your time is precious. That’s the exact reason why we’ve created these courses in such small chunks, so you can dip in and out when it suits you.

You can spend as little as 3 minutes learning something new, or refresh your memory if you’ve simply forgotten something.

Or, if you’ve got a little more time available, you could start to crack through one of the courses on your journey to becoming a Word Wizard – supercharging your efficiency and career.
