Microsoft Office Software Training

Get the Microsoft Office skills you need to become a valuable employee in today's workplace, or to get your feet wet and prepare to move on to more advanced training such as VIU's Applied Business Technology Program.

Currently we are training using MS Office 2007 & MS Office 2010 software (you can use either version of the software for the online classroom).

Take one course or the entire program. Core courses provide introductory training in various Microsoft applications. Electives focus on advanced skills and applications.

If you don't see an upcoming date for one of the courses you are interested in taking, please check back soon - new courses are always being added!

The MOST Program will give you a Vancouver Island University non-credit Certificate. These courses are offered both in-class and online (Word, Excel, Office Integration, Publisher and Outlook classes currently available online), and provide a basic introduction and hands-on practice with: Microsoft Word®, Microsoft Excel®, Microsoft Access®, Microsoft PowerPoint®, Microsoft Office Integration®, Microsoft Outlook®, and Microsoft Publisher®, enabling you to gain experience in everything from word processing and the basics of database design through to creating electronic presentations.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Computers or equivalent skills. Minimum keyboarding speed of 25 wpm recommended.
