There are many training options to choose from. Select the option that gives you the most training you can afford.

It doesn't matter whether you work for a company or for yourself...proficiency in Microsoft Word is an excellent job skill that improves your resume.

College Courses

teacher talking to computer classMost community colleges offer Microsoft Office 2007 training courses in their continuing education department. If you live in-district, the cost is usually quite reasonable.

If you want college credit for your efforts, look for a college that offers flexible scheduling to accommodate students who work.

Scheduling options can include self-paced courses, Saturday classes, or flexible start dates.

Usually, courses are offered at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels for all of the Microsoft Office programs. Just make sure that the course is for Word 2007 or 2010! You don't want to pay for training on outdated software.

Microsoft Word Online Training

There are online computer courses that you can complete in your spare time, either instructor-led training, or do-it-yourself.

A great option for online instructor-led training is ed2go where you can learn Microsoft Word online anytime, anywhere. You sign up for courses through ed2go, but they are taught online through local colleges and universities. The rates are quite reasonable with many classes around $99.

If you like to study at your own pace, I personally like the books and videos produced by lynda.com. They have monthly or annual subscription plans starting at $25 per month which give you full access to their library of over 40,000 tutorials. Visit lynda.com online training for more information.

"Training Costs Too Much"

Talk to your employer if you cannot afford specialized training. Your company may offer tuition reimbursement for software courses. You may also be eligible for pay raises based on your continuing education.

There is always the option to learn Microsoft Word on your own. Visit the Word Tips store for a hand-picked selection of books for Microsoft Office, Word 2007, and Word 2010.

If you are worried about spending the money for Microsoft Word 2007 training, think about this...the cost of training is far less in the long run than the time and expense of ongoing technical support.
