$59 for a Microsoft Office Training Bundle ($399 Value)
The Microsoft Office training bundle includes access to online training courses that teach students how to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook in a professional setting. Students can complete each course at their own pace—generally each one takes less than a week—and translate their skills with the 2007 or 2010 versions of these programs into careers as office managers, sales professionals, or administrative assistants. Each bundle includes instructor-led training, hands-on exercises, multimedia presentations, and exam simulators. These courses do not include copies of any Microsoft Office programs.
