Attended the two-day PowerPoint class
“I took this class after trying to figure it out using a textbook. PowerPoint is not an intuitive program. The instructor introduced the program in such a way that it was easy to grasp and the exercises reinforced what we learned. I now feel comfortable in PowerPoint and confident that I can successfully create a deck from scratch.”

Learned to create professional presentations with PowerPoint
“The Noble Desktop PowerPoint training 2-day session was informative, casual, fun. The instructor, Scott, was knowledgeable and helpful and patient with us as we navigated our way around PPT. It was a good course and I highly recommend it for anyone in need of brushing up or just the basics. Thanks for a helpful experience.”
In our PowerPoint class you’ll learn through projects. First by watching a short demo, then by actually practicing on presentations that utilize master slides, graphics, and charts.
