MS Visio Essentials Live Online Learning Courses
This one-day training course course has been designed to give you all the basics of Visio so you can start mapping process diagrams and creating organisation charts, network diagrams and scaled diagrams (such as room layouts). By the end of the day you will be able to set up, populate, layout, print and export a Visio diagram, and you will be able to create multiple pages with links between them.
This course is delivered remotely via GoToTraining. You can either install GoToTraining on your machine or use the Web App in your browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Full technical requirements are on the GoTo website.
Please note this is a full-day course consisting of three 90-minute live online sessions with independent work in between.
