Course Description

As a temporary measure to keep our learners safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, this course is being run remotely. Our educators have created an interactive, online course using video streaming software.

Maximize and advance your use of tables to organize data, create forms and catalogs. Fine-tune the look of your documents using column and layout options, section breaks, WordArt, themes, and templates. Electronic course manual (pdf) included.
