Office 2013 Upgrade training can be undertaken in Theatre style training sessions for larger groups, or Hands On training sessions for groups of up to six students. Some clients opt for a mix of training styles to meet the diverse needs of their staff.

Key points of Theatre Style and Hands on Training are:

Theatre Style Training

  • More delegates per session
  • Cost effective
  • Shorter timescale
Hands on Training
  • Up to six delegates a session
  • Longer timescale than Theatre Style
  • Less cost effective per head than Theatre Style training
  • More effective for key users than Theatre Style training


Training is broken down into five key modules listed below, and because of the nature of Hands on training the Modules take longer to complete.
