A modern and flexible method to learn how to use Microsoft Office better.

We have built, from the ground up, a new digital skills training program for people who want to improve their Microsoft Office skills.

Candidates will benefit from a blend of on-demand learning with live Instructor support.

Every aspect of the learning is reinforced with real world demonstrations of the different features of the Office program.

Overcoming the problems of traditional learning environments.

We’ve all been in training where the pace is too fast or too slow, too noisy, not enough support (or too much support!), information overload, or has been a burden to get to class and highly disruptive to work.

We have curated this training to be available when it suits you. You can get live support from an expert trainer when you have questions on the content, or need help applying the learning to your situation. It’s on demand learning with live Instructor support.

Training is broken into small elements of learning which are thoroughly explained and demonstrated using practical workplace contexts.

You set aside your own schedule for how long and how frequently you can work through the learning. Assessments are used to reinforce your learning and let you demonstrate your mastery of a given topic.

We have frequent weekly “training days” where your trainer will be “just a click away” if you schedule your training time for those days.

In addition, you can send a support request to the trainer for them to respond to, and you can continue on with other learning while you wait for that response.

Your Expert Office Nerd

Microsoft Office Specialist

Do you want to be trained by the best in the business? You need a certified Microsoft Office Specialist!

Training and assessment is facilitated by a Microsoft certified Microsoft Office Specialist with more than 20 years experience in IT training and support.

Ben is a gold plated geek when it comes to helping people learn how to do much more with Office –  with less frustration. As you undertake your training, your Microsoft Office Specialist Ben will be there when you need him to help with any concepts you’re stuck on.

It makes a world of difference to be able to speak with somebody, or have something demonstrated live for you when you need it. This type of support is critically important to our training strategy.

Despite his geeky tendencies Ben prides himself on being able to “talk plainly” when it comes to new and technical concepts, and help you apply those concepts in the workplace. And maybe even enjoy using Office!

Which Office applications will I learn

Our training and assessment focuses on “the big 3”: Word, Excel & PowerPoint.

The learning and exercises you complete will depend on your current experience. There is no need to spend time on concepts you are already competent in. You can complete some brief pre-assessment tasks to confirm skills you already have.

While training is designed around the modern Microsoft 365 version of Office, it is also mindful of web versions of the programs including Google Docs, Sheets & Slides
