Fast Track to Visio 2016 Course

About the Course

During this 2-day course, participants will learn to create a wide range of drawings and diagrams using Visio 2016. Instructors will show you how to use Visio’s built-in shapes, stencils, connectors, grids, styles and much more. 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.

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.

Prerequisites

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