“Mastery of the Microsoft Office Suite is crucial for today’s current and aspiring professionals, whether they are on-the-job or in the classroom. Employers across industries expect professionals to have these skills regardless of their background,” said Dr Jack Castonguay, PhD, CPA, Vice President of Strategic Content Development. “While basic proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite was previously enough for most professionals, the more that businesses move to remote and cloud-based operations, the more critical it is to fully leverage the potential of the programs – especially for accounting and finance professionals.”
The Benchmark Series: Microsoft Office 365 program delivers the functional knowledge that will help current and aspiring professionals succeed on the job. Made up of three modules that cover Excel, PowerPoint and Word, the series is a hands-on learning experience, with step-by-step guided instruction, comprehensive tutorials and videos that walk through each lesson with provided data files for students to complete alongside the course. This training may be completed online with user convenience at the forefront, and can be accessed from a PC, Mac or Chromebook.
