After finalising the fundamental skills required to ‘get by’ in today’s society, developing the skills and proficiencies that will enable us to thrive should be our next priority. Having developed the fundamental understanding of how to use applications and tools on computers; becoming competent with the big three of office applications (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) will truly enable us to become IT users in the 21st century.

This course will greatly improve your productivity by introducing you to the correct way and many shortcuts that even many professionals are unaware of. This training course makes a great addition on a CV if you will be intending to work in an office environment, administration position or in any organisation where computer use will be a necessary prerequisite.
