Microsoft Visio


Microsoft Visio Training Course Overview  

Duration: One Day 

Visio is a graphics drawing package with applications that assist the user in tracking their workflow; communicate with their department’s reporting structure, or enhancing their presentations with complete ease.  Close integration with the leading MS Windows applications, such as MS Office and Lotus Notes, means Visio provides the non-specialist with a comprehensive range of drawing tools.

During this one day workshop, you will learn fundamental MS Visio skills whilst creating several types of diagrams using Visio, including flow charts, flow diagrams and organisational charts. Little or no experience using Visio is required, however, you should have a good understanding of the MS Windows environment.

You will learn basic Visio techniques and shortcuts to enhance your productivity, together with how to use the unique tools designed for each type of drawing.
