Word Training – Advanced Document Production

Book this course

Course description

Our Word – Advanced Document Production course covers how to produce templates and documents that are easy to create and simple to modify.

This course will show you how using powerful tools such as styles, cross references, document properties and fields will enable you to focus on content, leaving Word to ensure the formatting and numbering is accurate.

Is it right for me?

Ideally, you will already be using Styles in long documents and be a confident Word user.

What will I get out of it?

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


  • Manage styles and create custom styles
  • Create templates to include styles and content
  • Define and modify a structured document
  • Insert bookmarks, cross references, tables of contents / figures and footnotes / endnotes
  • Use existing document properties and create custom ones
  • Manage linked headers and footers
  • Use track changes and compare document content

I found the trainer very helpful, approachable, knowledgeable, and if uncertain of anything would spend break-time looking into questions raised.  The offer of help and support (for 3 months) following our course is reassuring. I thought it was a great venue, lovely food and refreshments, very friendly and welcoming staff.  Frequent breaks during the course enabled us to maintain a brisk pace in the classroom.  Thanks very much to everyone.
