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.

Group Learning Events
If you have three or more learners, a private group course could be cheaper.
We can tailor the content to your team, and host the training remotely, at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.
The Small Print
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 website. Your 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.
