Microsoft Access offers a powerful, feature-packed solution for building a robust “data landing pad.” This 10-hour video training course gives your team the knowledge and skills you need to make this cost effective and easy-to-use database application work for your organisation.
Access is now much more than a way to create desktop databases. It’s an easy-to-use tool for quickly creating browser-based database applications that help you run your business. Your data is automatically stored in a SQL database, so it’s more secure than ever, and you can easily share your applications with colleagues.
In this course we will cover the basics of Access working up to more intermediate uses of Access. Areas to be covered include: setting up a database, exploring the ribbon, understanding macros and much more.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Chris “Simon” Calder was a Director of IT operations for one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious cultural institutions, LACMA. In this role, Simon saw the need for low-stress software training for hundreds of employees in his company who were facing technological upgrades at work. From there Chris built up a loyal following by providing accessible training to people of all ages.
"Learning and development had not been created as a continuous activity. Training was often one off interventions with the impact difficult to measure. Filtered has helped us change that in a short period of time. The cultural change it has driven in terms of reinforcing an expectation of continuous learning at all levels is the biggest achievement to me."
"We partnered with Filtered because we liked the idea of learners being able to tailor resources based on their knowledge gaps. The quality of reporting data provided allowed us to calculate an ROI of £1.80 for every £1 invested in a licence."
