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 PowerPoint 2013 that you need to know about in order to use this version to its full potential, such as the range of new tools. 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 PowerPoint 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:


  • Navigate within PowerPoint 2013
  • Use the new tools available in PowerPoint

Excellent trainer delivering the course in a friendly and professional manner. Good explanations and excellent knowledge of product.
