Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 is a software that is designed to create electronic presentations that include slides with graphics, text and even audio and video.  It is an important software to understand for many BJC jobs that need to present ideas or share other types of  information at a meeting.

We offer a full-day Foundations class called PowerPoint 2013 Basic Skills that will get you started understanding the basics of building slides, inserting text and graphics, managing presentation organization and outputting your file as an electronic show and printed handout.

When you understand the basics of building a simple presentation, then attend our 2 half-day Focus classes that focus on specific features for presenters or creators or presentations.

To sign up for a class, simply logon to the Online Learning Center and type PowerPoint Foundation.
