This beginners course will give you an introduction to using the free version of Microsoft Office - if you've never used programs like Microsoft Word or Excel before then this course is for you!
Learn by watching short video lessons
The course is made up of short bite-sized video lessons. You’ll learn step-by-step and won’t be overloaded with too much information and jargon.
Get tutor support
Your EC-PC Tutor will support you during the course, answering any questions by email. Telephone and remote support is also available when appropriate.
Once you complete the online lessons we’ll send you a practical assessment to work through – pass the assessment and you’ll obtain the EC-PC Digital Skills for Work Certificate.
You’ll need to have some basic Internet skills, ie be able to search for a website and send email. You’ll need a Windows PC or Chromebook, with a reliable broadband connection. During the course the free online version of Microsoft Office is used – to login you’ll need to have a Microsoft account and be able to login to www.outlook.com (ie have an email address ending with @outlook.com , @hotmail.com or @hotmail.co.uk). We recommend using a mouse during the course – if you don’t have a mouse, we’ll send you one!
