The latest version of Microsoft Office is 2019/O365 but the earlier formats - 2016, 2013 are 2010 - are still very much to be found in offices and homes throughout the UK and abroad.  Microsoft, however, has now ceased to provide support for Office 2007, 2003 and Windows XP.  The table below displays the icons that represent the different applications available in Microsoft Office.  Click on an icon to see more details, such as course outlines and main features.


For the everyday user, each version provides all of the basics for that particular Office application but you will see the new releases add a little more functionality to its predecessor.  All course outlines can be download as a PDF file; simply click on the appropriate logo to open up a new window, read about the course and download the outlines.
