Microsoft Word for New Business Owners

Tuesday, March 11, 2014
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Cost:  $50.00

MS Word is currently the most widely used word processing application, but new business owners often spend too much valuable time asking, “I wonder if it could do this?” – the answer, in most cases, is “yes” but how to get there?

Training topics will include:  familiarizing yourself with the tools of MS Word, document creation and revision, editing and formatting text, making professional documents, creating columns and tables, inserting headers and footers, saving time with templates (business cards and brochures), mail merge for mass mailings, and more!

This course is tailored to anyone who already has a basic knowledge of a modern word processing program, but wants to use it really effectively for a new business.
