Access 2013, 2016, 2019 and Microsoft® 365 Intermediate Courses

DMW’s Intermediate Microsoft Access courses are for anyone who has already set up a database using Access and now wants to fill in gaps in their basic skills and to explore Access's potential to the next stage.

For the time-being on-site courses are unavailable under the rules applying during the pandemic. So in the meantime you might consider receiving mentoring.

Also, the courses should serve anyone who has inherited a database from someone else and now has responsibility for its smooth running, which may mean making corrections, improvements or additions.
