Course instructions

You are required to watch each video twice before attempting the quiz.  You can only move on to the next topic upon successful completion of the accompanying quiz.  The pass mark is 100% – don’t worry, questions are designed to ensure you understood the video content, we are not trying to catch you out!    In case you do not pass the quiz the first time, you can re-watch the videos and take the quiz again.   Once its passed, you can move on to the next module.

While watching each video, pay close attention and concentrate on the content.  Do not let any distractions reduce your concentration level.  Quiz questions will be relatively easy to answer if you have paid complete attention but difficult if you have not. 

Do not attempt to do the quizzes without watching the videos fully, to assist in understanding, study the course vocabulary list before attempting the course.

Once completed a copy of the certificate will automatically be sent to the email address you used to register.  Alternatively, you can download a copy immediately at the end of the course.

In order to cement your knowledge, we highly recommend practicing the functions taught in this class using the actual PowerPoint program.  This way the knowledge you have gained will be retained for longer.
