Microsoft Training Courses

Microsoft's productivity programs are the best known and most popular in the world. But getting the best out of many of their powerful features is not so common. Our courses help to you to unlock that power.

At XChange Training, we know that almost all industries use Microsoft programs to some extent. We also know that many users struggle to take full control of Office and Microsoft's other related productivity programs. This is because what used to be a relatively simple suite of programs can now achieve much more than ever before. Word processors are no longer for just words. Email programs are no longer for just emails.

As these programs become more complex, an increasing number of users find it difficult to achieve basic tasks. Our introduction courses give those users an easy way to get started. We help beginners to raise their standards and feel confident with the Microsoft programs that are found in almost every office around the world.

We also offer intermediate training for those who already have a basic grounding in using Microsoft programs. Often, tasks that might be considered difficult or impossible can be achieved through the use of existing program features that are sometimes hidden from view.

Even if you are an experienced user, our advanced courses will show you how to squeeze every ounce of power from Microsoft's productivity programs.
