Course Objectives

This course aims to give users a broad introduction to Impress making attendees aware of as many features as possible during the day. The main objective is to create effective and clear business presentations. Following the course we hope clients will be able to return and use the product confidently, to be aware of the quickest ways to carry out the main commands, and know broadly the capabilities of the product.

Who Should Attend?

Any new user of Impress or any existing user who feels they should be more aware of the program's many features and shortcuts. Previous knowledge of the program will not be assumed although some knowledge of computer basics and working with Windows is expected. The topics covered on our "Introduction to Microsoft Windows" course are an adequate prerequisite for this course.
