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.

I found having one on one training was excellent. I got more out of having personalised training relating in particular to what I needed to know.
(5.00 out of 5) Lena M [ 15 March, 2018 ]
Creating stencils was invaluable as well as using short cuts to create diagrams etc. Section on Org Charts and Cross Functional charts was in particular very useful for the work that I am doing. Creating links to external data was also good to know. The knowledge gained from this course will save me a lot of time back at work and improve efficiency with using Visio.

When I had questions that were not covered in the course Grant was able to answer them and actually demonstrate them in Visio. This was most helpful.
