the fast cost-effective course to software skills

Microsoft Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project and Word Training

If your preference is for company-specific training instead of scheduled public courses, then DMW Consultancy supplies on-site tailored training courses and workshops in Microsoft Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project and Word.

Your needs for training at all levels from beginner to advanced user and programmer/developer are catered for.

With offices across London, Kent, Surrey and East and West Sussex, mainly, DMW clients vary in size from sole-proprietor, through SMEs to corporates, and span a wide range of business types.


Bespoke Course Content

To provide the training that suits your specific needs, you agree together with DMW an appropriate pick-and-mix of topics from our introductory, intermediate and advanced level course content.

We match practical aspects of any course to the activities for which you will use the software in your day-to-day work.

As added value to pass on to you, we bring to the training sessions our experience of developing business applications using Microsoft Office. Understanding gained from such experience is central to the effective application of the software to the objectives of your business and your users.

As an alternative to courses, our workshops for individuals and groups present great flexibility over how a half-day or a full-day of training is targeted across various combinations of the Microsoft Office programs.
