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.

This course can be delivered in the classroom or remotely via GoToTraining. Contact us for availability and pricing, or see our Live Online Learning page for our interactive 90-minute webinars that cover specific sessions. 

Course Overview

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.

The trainer took a lot of care to make sure that everyone was engaged in the training. Also, there were opportunities to practise what was learned, e.g using the Chat function.

The Small Print

For Live Online Interactive Learning sessions (webinars)

The course will run remotely for a full day consisting of three 90-minute live online sessions with independent work in between. 

All learners will need to either install GoToTraining on their machines or use the Web App in a browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Full technical requirements are on the GoTo websiteYour link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up GoTo correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

For classroom sessions

The course will run from 10am to 4:45pm (lunch is served 1pm to 1:45pm — we offer a choice of 3 cold bowl dishes). Please be careful to arrive by 9:45am for registration and refreshments. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals. If you arrive over 30 minutes late you may be asked to leave and attend another day.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed while we await further guidance.

We have a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We offer both shorter, 1.5-2 hour sessions that focus on a particular skill, as well as full-day sessions. You can see details of our online public programmes for our IT Skills here and our Leadership and Personal Development sessions here. We can also adapt any of our existing classroom sessions into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.
