MS-Word

This program is provided at Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Level.
Please see the Course Outlines
Also note the Prerequisites [Course Readiness Requirements – What Learners need to already know without struggle]

MS-Word is a text processing program; used to create, edit, format, organize, save, and print documents.
Used by business, education, home users, and other fields – the tasks one could perform range from producing Letters; Reports; Proposals; Meeting Agendas and Minutes; to Newsletters and Blogs; Schedules…

100% of PC-Users need to have professional and up-to-date (not older than 3-4 years) knowledge/skills of
MS-Word Basic Level.

In addition – at Comprehensive Basic Level – learning of this program serves as the bedrock, to other highly integrated Computer Literacy Programs. Learners develop a wide variety of common PC Literacy related professional methods; master their general handling techniques; and meet the required crucial prerequisites needed to be used and properly applied when working in other programs. This simply means that the Learner taking any other relevant courses is expected to already know – without struggling; all concepts, terminology, interface, features, tools, command, shortcuts… of MS-Word Basic.

Assuming is not a solution. If not sure, get assessed or take a Refresher Course!

Lacking, skipping, or undermining the professional up-to-date knowledge of Intro to Modern-PC and MS-Word Basic, even if not used on daily basis, always leave BIG GAPS and serve as a bottleneck – doesn’t matter how many other courses are taken or to what Level!

Also, we need to acknowledge that, it results in delay in the class participation and practices; and pressure on the Instructor and the Delegate. It has a negative impact on class atmosphere, and particularly on the confidence of the Delegate and further learning; as well as work performance and service!

A Valid Question:

Some people think they save the cost and time, by skipping an important prerequisite course, like this.  But what about the cost of struggling, waste of time, and loss of focus on actual tasks? In long term, is this really a saving or a great loss?

Prerequisites: Intro to Modern-PC

100% of PC-Users, whether in business, education or home environment, need to have professional and up-to-date (not older than 3-4 years) knowledge/skills of MS-Word Basic Level. This means good knowledge and application of all its concepts, terminology, interface, features, tools, command, shortcuts… which Learners need to use not only in MS-Word; but apply in all other programs.

Professional application of the above knowledge and skills would make it easy to produce a variety of Reports; Proposals; Letters; Meeting Agendas and Minutes; Newsletters and Blogs; Schedules…in MS-Word Basic.

Best suited, but not limited to: Receptionists, Personal Assistants, Office Administrators, Clerks, Students, Teachers, Head of Departments, Supervisors, Managers, Home Users…

Take New or Refresher Courses; and
Reduce time, efforts, energy, and loss of focus; on your actual tasks,
while using any computer program.
