This course is for beginner and intermediate users of Microsoft PowerPoint to get up to date to higher intermediate - advanced user status. This course is based on PowerPoint 2007, so even if you've used PowerPoint 2003 to a level - this course is still worth taking because a lot of new functions and features have been introduced into this version, plus things aren't in the same place - and it can be confusing to navigate at first.

The course tutor has been a user of PowerPoint since 1999. Having done a degree in Accounting with Marketing, there were always presentations to do using PowerPoint, and since graduating and starting a business, the author often gives talks on entrepreneurship and business, and only ever uses PowerPoint to present information.
