About the Course

During this course, participants will learn to create a wide range of drawings and diagrams using Visio 2010. Instructors will show you how to use Visio’s built-in shapes, stencils, connectors, grids and styles.

Who should do this course?

This course is designed for people who need to know how to create a range of diagrams and drawings such as flowcharts, business diagrams, office floor plans and organisation charts. Most graphics software programs depend on artistic skills, but Visio’s simple tools make conveying important information as easy as opening a template, dragging shapes into your drawing, and applying themes for a finishing touch.

Prerequisites

No prior knowledge of Microsoft Visio is required; however participants should have a general understanding of personal computers and the Windows operating system.
