Course Overview

These days, most people take electronic word processing for granted. While we may still write out our grocery lists with pen and paper, we expect to use a computer to create the majority of our documents. It’s impossible to avoid word-processing software in many areas of the business world. Managers, lawyers, clerks, reporters, and editors rely on this software to do their jobs. Whether you are an executive secretary or a website designer, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of electronic word processing.

Microsoft® Word is designed to help you move smoothly through the task of creating professional-looking documents. Its rich features and powerful tools can make your work easy, and even fun. In this course, you’ll learn how to use Word on the desktop to create and edit simple documents; format documents; add tables and lists; add design elements and layout options; and proof documents.

    5 Star Review

    I have spent decades achieving IT certifications, and it wasn’t until I sat in an Applied Technology Academy class that I really feel like I had finally found the BEST “hands on” training provider.  No looking back, I’m here to stay with Applied Technology Academy!

    –  John F.

    5 Star Review

    We had critical certification deadlines to meet for 75% of my team and the Applied Technology Academy team worked to ensure that my team was trained and achieved a 100% pass rate.  Some of the team members’ jobs were on the line – Applied Technology Academy to the rescue!

    – Marilyn S.

    5 Star Review

    Having used a multitude of training providers in the past with less than stellar results, we were so excited to find Applied Technology Academy.  Their instructors, we have had four, have been consistently amazing. We are done shopping for a training provider!
