Why book this course?

For many businesses, visual design is not something you may want or need to dedicate resources to. Yet when the need crops up to produce a poster, pamphlet or other marketing materials, you may lack the expertise to do it. The result could reflect poorly on your business, or drive you to spending money unnecessarily on a designer.

Our highly practical Introduction to Microsoft Publisher course introduces you to the Publisher application from the Microsoft Office suite.  You will be made familiar with the essentials of Publisher, learning how to produce appealing layouts and professional designs with practical work and tutor-led led instruction.

Who is the course for?

The Introduction to Microsoft Publisher course is a great introduction to the software, and designed for anyone who needs to produce flyers, mailshots, brochures or other marketing materials with ease and style.

There are no prerequisites for this course, although it is preferred that you have some basic keyboard and mouse skills. Some familiarity with other Microsoft applications (e.g. Word) may also be helpful.
