Course Outline

Condensing a Microsoft Outlook course into twelve hours is the optimum balance of time taken and information given and that’s just how we deliver our Microsoft Outlook training.

Of all the Microsoft Outlook courses, we’re convinced that this one is the best. In six lessons, we’ll take you through everything you need to go to use Outlook as a work tool, from navigation and views through contacts and appointments to tasks and folders. This is MS Outlook training on a self-study basis, so learning is flexible to suit you. Your workbook will stay with you as a handy reminder and reference guide – and the Pitman Training name will always be on your CV as a sign of the quality of your learning.

Once this course is complete, you can advance your knowledge of Office still further with our training for Excel and PowerPoint. If you’re wanting to maximise your earning and career potential, then consider also our specialist diplomas – they’re highly respected by employers.

Through a series of six lessons this course will teach you that Microsoft Outlook is more than just an email programme. You’ll learn all about emails, contacts, calendar management and how to create tasks. As with all our training, you can work through each lesson at your own pace.

You’ll finish the course with a good working knowledge of the programme and the confidence to show employers that you have been trained to the highest level.

Many industries utilise this this popular Microsoft Office programme so it is ideal for anyone who needs to have a good, indepth working knowledge of this software to help maximise efficiency and productivity.
