What’s New in Microsoft Office 2013 Course

Book this course

Course description

Microsoft Office 2013 brought with it a vast range of new and exciting features to help improve the way you work, such as the new ‘ribbon’ interface. But if you’re used to working with an older version, this programme will guide and support you in the transition to 2013.

We show you all the new additions to Office 2013 that you need to know about in order to use this version to its full potential, including using the ribbon tab and all the basics of Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Learners are encouraged to participate in the session by asking questions, and we’ll be here to give you support via telephone, email or Twitter for 90 days after the programme finishes.

Is it right for me?

If you’re looking to upgrade to Office 2013, or you’ve recently upgraded and want to gain a better understanding of the new features, this online Office training course will provide you with a solid understanding of the latest version.


What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the new ribbon interface
  • See and use some of the new features of Word 2013
  • See and use some of the new features of Excel 2013
  • See and use some of the new features of PowerPoint 2013

Excellent. The trainer was relaxed, assured and extremely knowledgeable. Probably the best external training I've had.  Would thoroughly recommend this training to others, it was superb!
