I know how to type. Why would I spend time learning Microsoft Word?
↳ This course is designed, not to make you a better typist, but to help you become a better Microsoft Word user. To work faster, with less stress, and better results.
But all I do is type, how will this course help me?

With today's changing business environment, it's always better to know more than less.
I have been using Microsoft Word for a long time. What could I possibly learn?
↳ When I train courses to a live group, at least twice an hour I hear, "Oh, I've been doing it the long way this whole time.", or "I didn't know you could do that.".Will that be your experience? I do not know, but take a look at the course lectures to see what topics are covered. You also have 30 days to see if the course is right for you.
Can I use this course with my version of Microsoft Word?
↳ As long as it is not Microsoft Word 2003 or earlier, yes.
