About this course

Medical offices require a lot of admin. Getting to grips with the finer workings of Microsoft Word means you can create professional looking documents and reports quickly and easily, saving you hours of wasted time trying to format files that won’t behave.

In this course you'll look at how to: -  

• Create a number of different documents including letters, reports and notices

• Amend existing documents and proofread with the inbuilt tools

• Format text and tables for a more professional looking finish

• Arrange and re-order data in different types of documents and formats

• Use headers and footers for document consistency

• Insert pictures into documents

At the end of this course, you will also then have the opportunity to go on and gain a Pitman Training certification and include this on your CV.

 

Here is what you'll cover throughout the three lessons in this course:

  • Lesson One: Including: using document templates; writing letters, reports and notices; proofreading; margins, spacing and indenting; formatting a table; moving and deleting text.
