MS Office Classes (Word, Excel, Power Point, etc) - April 20, 2010, 10:14 AM

Hello, computer people!
I know this isn't bike related but I also know a lot of you work in the I.T. industry and hopefully you can help.

I've done some online searching and am having a hard time locating what I think of as a simple class: Microsoft Office basics.

I would like to sit in a classroom (preferably not online) and polish my skills in Excel, Word, Power Point, Project, etc., and learn something new about all of those. Ideally, this class would take place outside of the beltway near where I live in Ashburn.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

Tanya, I have an Office 2007 Instruction/manual I used for an Office/Computers 101 or 103 class at Dundalk Community College...all we did was read the chaptyers and have to make databses/spreadsheets etc with it. Good book.

I was gonna throw it out, its yours if you want it. Would be a good supplement to classes.

Hi, just a suggestion for you . . . one thing you might want to consider (maybe not right at this moment but later on), is getting certified. You can find out some info on the Microsoft Office Specialist certification here. Take your class, practice, then take an exam in the MS product(s) you want, if that's what you're looking to do (and try to get your employer to cover as much as possible ). Good luck!

Does certification really make a difference?

The Microsoft Office Specialist Program provides a mechanism for all types of workers to prove their competency in the Microsoft Office System programs. A recent study of 14,000 Office Specialists and 1,200 of their supervisors clearly demonstrated that Office Specialists are viewed by their supervisors as more competent, more productive, and more credible as a result of their certification status. Whether you are new to your career or a highly trained administrative professional with a top-level staff position, you will find that adding "Microsoft Office Specialist" to your resume is beneficial.

I would never take a class on office, but then again it depends on what you need to do with it. General basic stuff really doesnt require a class. If you can use a typewriter, you can use word. Word is like any other word processor.

The same goes for excel, unless your writing dynamic spreadsheets (fields that can be brought in from other fields or other spreadsheets).

Powerpoint. Really simple to pickup on your own. I mean how many ways can you make a presentation. Music, animation (lose term), slide left, slide right, etc..

Now Project, Access, Publisher, etc may require some class or book time. Again it depends on how you need to use it and how computer savy you are. (I taught myself access. Moved onto SQL with some classroom instruction easy). If you can get on the internet and post questions on a board, then you should have no issues with word.

Additional questions...what version of office will you be using? 2003-2007..Fine

Office 2010? You'll want to go to class for stuff like OCS, unless you get to work on it. But I digress.
