This course is for individuals using Word 2016, 2013 or 2010 and is taught using Word 2016
software. However, there are very few differences between the 2016 and the 2013 and 2010
versions from an end-user’s perspective. Our instructors have used all 3 versions and will be able to
quickly highlight the several small changes to the user interface. Users of any of the 3 versions of
