Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program. Most Presentations are now delivered by a presenter using a PC or laptop connected to a data projector and people are using PowerPoint to help deliver a simple, complicated or memorable message. PowerPoint uses slides as pages for any presentation, where each slide can have animated text, tables, graphs, images and movies. Delivering a presentation can be a nerve-racking experience but creating a presentation for someone else can also be a harder task, unless the users know the tools available to use.

PowerPoint does not just have to be used for presentations, it can also be used for slideshows at trade fairs or even marketing emails. This program can definitely be one of the most enjoyable programs of Microsoft Office Suite to use. PCS’ PowerPoint courses will allow the user to gain confidence and the knowledge to create vibrant presentations for themselves or their teams to present.

PowerPoint Introduction: Showtime

Course Code: ITS09 | Duration: 1 Day | Level: Introduction

This stage assumes no prior knowledge of PowerPoint. The course would be ideal for beginners or for people who are self-taught and just wish to brush up on their existing PowerPoint skills. The course begins with an overview of the program and navigation of the screen, then quickly progresses to creating a simple presentation with each slide using a different layout. Once the user has created the Presentation they will then be taught how to add the different types of Animation effects to their text, images and even graphs, and how each slide can blend into one another by using Slide Transitions. One of the best and useful parts of the course would be using Master Slides which allows the one slide image or text layout to be used throughout all slides; this can speed up the time spent on the creation and formatting of a detailed presentation. By the end of the course students will have the confidence to create professional looking slides to be used for their own or some else’s presentations.

Microsoft PowerPoint Advanced: MASTERCLASS

Course Code: ITS10 | Duration: 1 Day | Level: Advanced

The advanced PowerPoint course is a very important course for anyone needing to take their presentations to the next level. Adding Animation to incoming text is the most common effect to add, however text and shapes or images can appear or disappear or move direction as well. Sometimes the easiest way to emphasise a topic or message is sometimes by showing less. With this course PCS will show all the effects of how they can be used effectively starting with animated organisational charts to custom animated graphs with pictures. The Question and Answer section of a presentation can sometimes be one of the hardest problems for anyone; with this course we will show how a simple slide “Any Questions” can have the capabilities of jumping to any slide in any direction which will make the presenter look prepared for any question and create an overall more professional impression. After attending this course the student will feel very capable of mastering PowerPoint enabling them to create more advanced slideshows with advanced content, using links into slides or applications as well as sound and video.
