Why book this course?

Data visualisation is an increasingly important tool for many businesses, both in organisation and decision-making. With more and more data being recorded and stored, the value of processing it into attractive and easily-parsed diagrams, graphs and other graphics is obvious - and the skills to do it are increasingly valuable.

Our Introduction/Intermediate Combined course is a highly practical introduction to the Visio application from the Microsoft Office suite.  You’ll become familiar with the essentials of Visio, learning how to create impressive graphics with maximum hands-on time and tutor-led instruction.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for anyone who needs to produce professional flowcharts, hierarchies and other diagrams, particularly in environments where there is a large amount of unprocessed data.  

There are no prerequisites for this course, although it is preferred that you have some basic keyboard and mouse skills.
