Visio 2007 Training Courses


Microsoft Visio 2007 allows you to create flow diagrams, organisational charts, network diagrams, scaled drawings...well the list goes on. This course introduces you to the main functions in the application as well as giving you training in some of the main templates and shapes that you are likely to find useful.

To accompany the instructor lead training, each delegate will receive manuals and practise, step-by-step exercises. This will provide an excellent source of information and on-going self study once the training has been completed.

The course outline listed is only a suggestion and can be altered to reflect your business needs. You could for example request a half day course on Visio and fill the rest of the day with a PowerPoint course.
