PowerPoint in a Day

A 1-day Quickstart to Presentations

Take a day to get a firm grip on Microsoft PowerPoint. Understand how masters work, and how to create templates that will do what you expect them to do. We'll cover everything from the basics to charts to transistions and animations. You should have a solid working knowledge of the program by the end of the day, and feel comfortable using most features of the program.

This class is for Mac and Windows. It will be taught with PowerPoint 2016, but many of the techniques will apply to previous versions of PowerPoint.
