Microsoft Office 2016 Conversion
Aimed at learners who are already familiar with Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook, this course will help you find your way around all the new features available in the new 2016 versions. The first goal: to make sure you can find everything you’ve already been using. The second: to help you discover the new features that will get you excited by your upgrade.
What you will learn
By the end of this Office course, you will be able to:
- Work with the new Office 2016 User Interface, such as customising
- Backstage View and the new Ribbons
- Use the new features in Word, such as opening PDFs and the Design tab
- Use the new features in Excel, such as Flash Fill and Quick Analysis
Please note, this course is designed to show you how to use features you are already familiar with from previous versions.
This is not an Office 365 and working in the Cloud course (although it does mention working in the Cloud). If you would like to learn how to use Office 365 features such as SharePoint, OneNote, Skype for Business and Yammer, please see our Office 365 Conversion course or contact us for details.

...every organisation implements 365 slightly differently?
Happy are experienced at 365 rollouts and we can create learning programmes that will help your teams work effectively and make the most of the new tools available. Alternatively, if you're not using the online tools but have upgraded to the Office 365 desktop apps, we run sessions on the new features in the desktop apps.
