System Requirements

For working (hands-on workshops only)

In the case of hands-on workshops, you will also need a working copy of the software being demonstrated. For most workshops “Starter Edition” is NOT adequate. Please ensure you have a full working copy so as to be able to try out the examples. Most workshop will be demonstrated using Microsoft Office 2010  or 2013 or later.

Important specifics

Microsoft Outlook courses – ONLY version 2010+ can be used for hands-on courses. If you use versions prior to 2010, you may not be able to try out all the examples.

Microsoft Office 2013+ – wherever specified in the title or the requirements, if the course specifies only version 2013+, then participants must use version 2013+ if they wish to try out all the examples

For Viewing / Listening

Avancer Learning Inc uses the Citrix GoToTraining server system. This is a user-friendly and fast system with a high degree of compatibility.

Audio and Video System

A headset or speakers is usually adequate for listening to the audio part of the course. However if you have trouble with this you can also use the Telephone to dial-in.

Using the Telephone requires you to make a call to a call-in number which is NOT TOLL FREE. Depending on where you are calling from, long distance charges may apply.

You can select your audio mode from the audio panel of your controls once you join a course

What's Included

  • Live Instruction with hands-on practice
  • Practice Data
  • PDF file of Course Notes
  • Access to the Course Recording for one month

Heads Up: Good To Know

  • Privacy First – Only the instructor sees the questions you ask and answers you submit. Webcams are disabled. Microphones are muted.
  • Break Time – Courses longer than two hours have a break scheduled. Usually this is midway. So a four hour course would have a one hour break after the first two hours.
  • If for some reason you are unable to attend the course, you will still get a link to the course recording with access for a month, so you won’t miss the instruction.
