Outlook and Organization – Improving the Management of Your Personal Information

Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager application, which means that the software records, tracks, and manages personal information that is usually included in your calendar, e-mail center, and to-do list. However, not many people have tapped into these powerful features of Microsoft Outlook. In fact, many individuals still use Microsoft Outlook just as an e-mail application. If you are one who still hasn’t uncovered the true strength of this software application, then what you need is a training course that will teach you how to use this software effectively.


Ashford Global IT (AGIT) has just the thing for you – a series of Microsoft Outlook courses. The choice to learn Microsoft Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Outlook 2007 is all yours. However, aside from the prominent differences between both versions of Microsoft Outlook (e.g., the interface of the software), the main structure of the courses is the same. So, regardless of which version you choose, here are the descriptions of the different levels AGIT offers:
