Information is at the heart of the modern workplace. It comes from everywhere – people, processes, applications and devices. The greatest challenge can be making sense of all that data. What if you could unlock that old adage, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’, and create visualisations evocative enough to represent those complexities? Or, put another way, what if you could visually represent your data like a professional graphic designer? 

With Visio, you can. Visio lets you easily and quickly visualise the information you deal with every day. With over 250,000 shapes and templates designed for a variety of industries, Visio makes it simple and intuitive to create professional diagrams in just a few steps.

This Microsoft Visio Advanced course gives you a comprehensive understanding of how to use Visio features such as Layers, Data Graphics, Reports and many more! It will show you when, why, and how to use tools and features of Visio and guide you through interactive, hands-on demonstrations every step of the way.
