MSOffice™ for Professionals

Ever have those days when you want to launch the laptop or tower unit out the nearest window?  Often, the only things keeping you from destroying both the machine and the window are the vision of the payroll deduction from your paycheck, and the picture of your boss’ face when you try to explain yourself.  Relax, help is on the way!  This interactive workshop will provide tribal technical, clerical, and executive staff, as well as elected officials, with user-friendly instruction, techniques, and hands-on practice exercises that will help you make the most of the Microsoft applications that are today’s industry standards: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access, Picture Manager and Publisher.  This four-day course will teach you basic software application features and the correct language to describe it; “tips and tricks” for simplifying the use of each; essential keyboard shortcuts; how to produce unique, publication-ready documents; and what to do when the software is presenting repeated problems.

KIVA’s instructors have decades of experience utilizing Microsoft Office and a multitude of other software, and have helped individuals from age 5 through their senior years befriend their computers and make them companions that can expand personal and professional development opportunities, improve the ease of daily computing work efforts, and impress employers, friends, and professional colleagues.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who is challenged in using computers and a variety of computer software that either comes pre-installed in your new computers, or software that your company buys. This includes tribal elected leaders, tribal administrative staff, clerks and typists, teachers, students, etc.
