Course Information

Overview

Microsoft Visio stands out among similar applications because of its unique ability to draw a wide variety of diagrams, flowcharts, workflows, and organization structures—anything that can be represented by shapes connected by lines. Most importantly, these shapes can be rearranged and with corresponding lines remaining intact. 

Visio has improved over the years as features common among Microsoft Office applications have been added. Today, Visio is well integrated with other members of the Office family as well as Microsoft's cloud-based services. This greatly enriches the sharing and publishing of Visio drawings.

Testimonials

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this course but do feel that the duration should be extended in order to allow more time to cover all of the topics. Noel was a fantastic trainer, happy to answer any questions and very good at explaining how to do something, thank you.
