Word Basic Course

In addition to entering text, you want to master all the basic skills of working with Word. This starts, of course, with opening and saving your text. You will learn how to navigate through your document and how to format your text for a nice layout. This of course includes adding images and illustrations. Using copy, cut and paste will save you a lot of time.

We walk you through all the menus so that you understand what is where and how the structure of the programme works. Learning to work with the assistant helps you to look up something you cannot find.

An important part of the course is learning how to work more quickly with Word by using shortcuts, among other things. After you have become proficient in the basics, you will also learn to work with a number of important tools such as the spell check, making a table of contents and applying styles.

Topics

  • What's new in your version
  • Using the interface
  • Formatting documents
  • Print
  • Spelling and grammar checker
  • Generate table of contents
  • Different tabs
  • Backstage
  • Tell me what you want - assistant
  • Enter text
  • Text formatting
  • Using and modifying text styles
  • Tables, graphs, screenshots and images
  • Working with paragraph formatting: tabs, bullet points, alignment
  • Sharing documents
  • Create a mailing

The trainer

During the training you will be guided by a social and competent trainer. At the beginning of the training, the trainer will discuss your entry level and what you want to get out of the training, so that you can focus on topics and exercises that are important to you.

Which version? 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019.

When you register, you can fill in which version you are using. Our planners will then ensure that you can follow the training in the correct software version with the material written for this version.

Afterwards

After the training, you will be able to enter and open texts with MS-Word. You know how to navigate quickly within a document and formatting and printing text is no longer a challenge for you. You can now concentrate on the content!

Prior knowledge

For this training, no experience with Word is necessary. However, some experience with Windows is a plus. The Windows Basic training can be used as a basis.

Note

This training can be followed in different versions. Please indicate whether you use Word 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 or 2019.

You are given the opportunity to bring in examples from your own practice and IT environment, which will help you learn even more specifically .

"For years I have disliked the word processing programme "Microsoft Word". I was already sick when I had to write a letter in that "Word" with pictures, tables etc. I would rather write a letter in Excel, because I could handle that better. Now that fear has gone, it was just a lack of knowledge. I had never really looked into this programme. I already started with a wrong work order when setting up a document and that resulted in frustration with all its consequences." - Rating: 10.0

"I followed the training "Word 2010 Continuation". In addition to the basic knowledge I already had of Word, this is a valuable addition to my daily work at the secretariat. Years ago, I was still trained with the Office 2003 package and Office 2010 does show many differences from the 2003 version, so it often takes more time to find out where they have hidden that one button or function. I will certainly be applying many things in practice and have learned many new things (also things I thought I already knew well!)." - Rating: 8.0
