On this one-day programme we will look at the day to day functionality of MS Word from using shortcuts to more advanced features, placing an emphasis on the business and report writing functionality. Specifically, we will look at document layout from tabs and tables to maintaining effortless consistency through the use of styles and the automation of more time intensive tasks such as generating a table of contents. We will also troubleshoot the more frustrating topics such as achieving alternating headers, footers and page numbering.

• All participants will be provided with an E-Bridge email address and phone number for any queries or questions that may arise following the training.

• All participants will be given access to a library of tutorials by way of an email containing the links to the relevant topics. As we record these tutorials ourselves the content / examples used will match those used during the classroom training. As a result the participants will find them to be relevant and easy to follow. The tutorials will be available to participants for a limited time period (6 months following the course).

• A BiznetCork Skillnet E-Bridge Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to each participant on completion of all courses. A sample copy is attached for your approval.

About this form

The purpose of this booking form is to gather profile information about participants on programmes funded by Skillnets from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education & Skills (DES). Only aggregated participant data will be reported to the DES. Separately, Skillnets will inform the Department of Social Protection (DSP) about the attendance of individuals in receipt of income support from DSP on short courses (i.e. 20 days or less). This is part of an arrangement with the Department, which supports the participation of its clients on Skillnets programmes.

Please Note: The number of free places available on this course are limited, and may already be allocated. In filling in this form, you are requesting a place on this course as opposed to making a confirmed booking. A member of our training team will be in touch closer to the course start date to advise if we are in a position to offer you a place on this course. If we are not able to offer you a place on this course, your request will be kept on file for future courses.
