Looking to improve your IT skills for work?

We offer a variety of user-friendly courses to boost your skills and productivity in the workplace!

Our online self-paced courses will show you how to use Microsoft Office more effectively. We also offer traditional instructor-led training delivered online using Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Face-to-face training sessions are also available at our Aberdeen Training Centre.

Many of our courses include the option to obtain certification. Learner competence is assessed though our 'EC-PC Office IT' programme, at Basic and Intermediate User levels.
