Most business professionals have used Microsoft Office for years, but would really like to learn specific Office skills, such as Excel functions, databases and dashboards; PowerPoint beyond bullet points; persuasive communications with Word; and collaboration using OneNote. We’ve rounded up these “most asked for” topics for a series of intense mini-courses we call Crash Courses.  

Crash Courses are designed for business specialists, professionals and executives. These individuals may lack time for skill development or have limited experience with Microsoft Office and want, or need, to expand their knowledge, skills and productivity in one or more programs.  

We’ve gathered our most requested Microsoft topics into this series. These special crash courses are only a half day long and offered at a special price you won’t find anywhere else.
