I have been out of work since june 0f 09. I feel my knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite is sliping away especially Excel? Is there a online class where can maintain my knowledge on Microsoft Office.

  • Bill Gates has strict copy rites on all of the MS stuff. You won't find a free MS class because anyone who teaches MS has to pay Bill Gates copy rite fees.

  • I'm not sure about free, but you may be able to take classes for free at a local college. You may qualify for a full pell grant and you can take online classes. That's what I'm currently doing. Actually, I'll be graduating in May with a certificate in Medical Office Assisting from doing online classes through a local vo-tech college. My pell grant has covered my tuition and even my books so all I've had to worry about is going good in the class.

  • You can go directly to the Microsoft page and do tutorials on site. There are loads of trainings there for you. Enjoy!

  • Your state's unemployment office may offer classes. Honesly, you would be better off taking a class at a community college and getting Microsoft Office certifications.
