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

With groups in which people already have an appreciation of Word, we focus on topics of the greatest shared interest and relevance. This is an advantage of on-site training: you are not tied to a syllabus as you might be when attending a public course.

Course Duration

This course takes one day on-site, normally between 9:30 AM and 4:30 PM. Starts and finishes can be changed to suit your diary.

Not having to face the costs in terms of time and travel to a training centre and not being far from your desk are advantages to you of on-site courses.

Course Prerequisites

Completion of our Microsoft Word Basic Introduction course or sound practical experience of the skills covered by that course.

Touch-typing ability is not a prerequisite.

There will be some typing, but speed is not critical to success in the course. If that’s not sufficient reassurance, note that Word can do most of the typing for you:

  1. Start a new, blank Word document
  2. Type “Main Heading” and press Enter
  3. Type “First Sub Heading” and press Enter
  4. Type =rand(4) and press Enter
  5. Type “Second Sub Heading” and press Enter
  6. Type =lorem(3,2) and press Enter.


On completion of a training course, each attendee receives a Certificate of Attendance, which contains details of the topics covered during the training.
