Microsoft PowerPoint Level 1

Course Length

1 Day (Typically 9AM - 4PM with a 1 hour lunch)

Course Objective

This course is intended for those with little or no experience with PowerPoint, who want to learn the features they will use every day. It is also intended for those who have never taken a formal training class (or took one a long time ago) to learn new features and the most efficient way to perform commands.


Participants should be comfortable using the mouse and keyboard.

Delivery Model

Hands-on, instructor led, group-paced, classroom learning. The pace of class is based on the participants' previous computer experience and class expectations. Questions are welcome and encouraged!
