Microsoft PowerPoint Introduction

This course is for individuals using PowerPoint 365, 2019 or 2016 and is taught using PowerPoint 2019 software. However, there are very few differences between the 365 and the 2016 versions from an end-user's perspective. Our instructors have used all versions and will be able to quickly highlight the several small changes to the user interface. Users of any of the versions of PowerPoint will have no problem learning in the 2019 software environment.
