Why Microsoft Word? Word, quite simply, is the world standard in document processing. Most businesses in the world today use Microsoft Word for their word processing needs. It's a valuable skill to have!

Who should attend? Anyone who is looking to learn how to use Word more efficiently, and to learn additional features, tips, and tricks. No prior word processing experience is necessary.  

What will be covered? We will start out covering the basics of word processing, and building a basic business letter. We will cover all of the page formatting techniques, such as setting margins, tab stops, headers and footers, etc. See below for an outline of the topics covered in class.

Where will the course be held? Wherever you are! That's the best thing about online courses - you can learn from the comfort of your home or office. All you need is a Web browser and Windows Media Player, which is a free download from Microsoft if it's not already installed on your computer (and it probably is).

How much is registration, and what do I get? The cost is only $34 per student (quantity discounts available, please call). Registration includes enrollment for the course and a downloadable, 80+ page workbook outlining everything taught in class.

Why Amicron? Why should you trust Amicron for your online training? We have been providing classroom-based training since 1994. We don't just cover the material in some off-the-shelf textbook. We have written all of our own course materials and we know what you need to learn from practical experience. Every computer training company will say this, but we really mean it: our instructors are true experts. We're not just teachers who know computers. We're computer programmers, database developers, and technicians who teach. 

Who is the instructor? Richard Rost is the instructor for this course. He is a self-taught computer programmer, database developer, and web designer by trade. Richard started his career in computer training working in the technical support industry. He was in charge of training computer technicians to help customers solve their problems over the phone. From there, Richard founded Amicron Technology Services in 1994. When he's not teaching, he's building Access database solutions and for clients nationwide. He also builds web sites and online databases.

Class three covers advanced page layout using tables, recording and editing macros, and much, much more. This is the course for the Word user who wants to learn everything.

Student Interaction: Microsoft Word Seminar

Richard on 1/1/2007:  This course will teach you everything from the basics of writing letters all the way up to the more advanced features such including table layouts and mail merge.
Richard Rost on 10/12/2007: No, the email address 'training@amicron.com' isn't valid anymore. Thank the spammers for that one.
JOSE  MELO on 5/27/2008: how to print pages alternatively for exempole: pages 3,7,12
Richard Rost on 6/13/2008: Jose, just go to File > Print and type exactly the pages you want into the PRINT dialog box:

3,7,12

That's perfectly fine. You can also type in

1-5,10-15,20

And alternatives of that.

Lois on 12/28/2008: How does this video course compare with the Word 101, 102, 103, 201 CD courses? I'm considering ordering the CD courses, but this video course sounds as if it covers them? Thanks for your help :)
Richard Rost on 1/19/2009: The Word Seminar was recorded LONG before my Word 101, 102, etc. courses were put together. It covers a broad range of topics, but the quality and depth of coverage is nowhere near as good as the regular Word courses because the Seminar was recorded from a live online event.

If you want to learn Word fast and quick, and you don't care about the quality of the video (there are some skips, static, etc.), the Seminar is fine. Otherwise, I strongly recommend the Word 101, 102, etc. courses.

Emma Tameside on 10/5/2012: Hi Richard. I'm really interested in learning about applying styles and templates (I'm not sure I'm even using the right terminology there either!) but I've seen people create the most amazing documents in word that they then print to PDF as an ebook. All the styles are consistent with their brand and it just looks so professional.

Whenever I try, it just looks like a dull, drab Word doc :(

I took some microsoft training uk last year, and that helped me a lot in terms of using the preset styles in Word, and learning about Table of Contents too, but if you've got any resource for really getting my teeth into making my docs look more professional, I'd love to check them out.

Thank you.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Hi Emma. I cover STYLES in several of my Word courses and seminars, especially Word 2. Lots more about Styles will be coming up in my forthcoming Word Expert series later this year.

I only covered setting up an automatic Table of Contents in my Word 2007 Upgrade seminar. Again, I'll be doing more with that soon. That seminar pertains to 2010 as well, and is good if you're used to Word 2003 or older.

Word is one of those subjects that I haven't done much with over the past couple of years because I've been so focused on Excel and Access.
