In this foundational Microsoft skills training, Simona Millham helps learners of all skill levels understand basic to advanced Word functions.
If you’ve been working in an office for a while, you’ve probably used Microsoft Word. It’s really a question of whether you’ve been using Word to the fullest. In this Word training, Simona starts from the basics and quickly progresses to advanced Word topics like building blocks and quick parts and templates or styles. If you’re new to Word, then it makes sense to start from the beginning. Everyone else should jump in where they feel most comfortable — and feel free to skip around.
While this Word training isn't necessarily mapped to a Microsoft exam, it's valuable training for technical and non-technical professionals. To use this training, you should be using a traditional Word 2019 license, as opposed to an Office 365 subscription license.

You'll also gain an understanding of advanced topics, such as mail merge, macros, graphics, styles, table of contents, and indexing.
For anyone who leads a technology team, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new technical and non-technical professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Word reference resource.
