If you have invested in the Microsoft Office 2010 software, it only makes sense to learn how to use it efficiently. While similar to Office 2007, Office 2010 has some streamlined features that make it easier than ever before to create impactful business documents. Sure, you could learn by trial and error, but this TECHEAD instructor-led training course gives you all the shortcuts so you can easily master Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Excel 2010.

In Microsoft Office Word 2010, you now have the power and familiarity of Word everywhere you need it. You can view, navigate, and edit your Word documents from the browser and from your mobile phone without compromising your document’s richness. With Microsoft Excel 2010, you can highlight important data trends in seconds using Sparklines and edit documents with others simultaneously using the new Excel Web Apps.

With this TECHEAD Microsoft Office 2010 training course, you’ll learn not only what’s new, but discover features you never knew existed before!
