About this Course

This course is designed for new users to Microsoft Publisher.

Publisher can create newsletters, brochures, flyers, business cards, letterhead, banners, signs, greeting cards, labels and web pages. Our aim is to provide you with the necessary skills to use Publisher.

In this course we cover features such as:

  • Creating publications.
  • Using WordArt, Tables, Drawing tools and Clip Art in your publication.
  • Use the word processing features to create text boxes, tabulation, bullets, line spacing and so forth.
  • Offer guidelines on design layouts.
  • Use the built in layout checks to illuminate errors.
  • Creating Templates.

We will introduce many timesaving features using quick keys and shortcuts.

It is important that you use your new skills as soon as possible on completion of this training course. We encourage you to take your own notes and to review this Course Guide once you are back at your workplace.


It is essential that attendees are familiar with the Windows environment and have a very good knowledge of file handling.
