Course Overview

This is a one-day training course tailored to teach new PowerPoint users the basics of PowerPoint’s presentation software. Participants will learn how to create, edit, format, print and publish simple presentations. You’ll get to know the PowerPoint package, learn how to work with text, add shapes, understand the help function, create a presentation, use slide layouts, prepare your presentation for viewing, apply SmartArt graphics and print your presentation. We’ll also give you some tricks of the trade to create effective presentations that are easy to read using clear layouts and beautiful designs.

At Raising the Bar, all of our training courses are delivered by certified PowerPoint professionals using clear, easy to follow instructions that are suitable for beginners. We use face-to-face teaching methods with small class sizes so that all students enjoy the benefits of a supportive learning environment. Our instructors will guide you using hands-on activities and clear demonstrations, so you will leave with exciting new skills and the confidence to create your own PowerPoint presentations. We supply all the necessary equipment, so all you need to bring is an eagerness to learn.

Upon completion of the PowerPoint Beginners course, you’ll earn a certificate of completion, a course guide containing all the information you learned, access to 12 months of phone and email support and the skills required to proceed to one of our more advanced PowerPoint courses.
