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.

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!
