Exceeded my expectations in all aspects: course was well thought out, materials were presented clearly and engagingly, and Scott made sure at every step that he‘d brought everyone along with him. He was truly excellent, a superb teacher. Needless to say, I‘d gladly take another class with him.

I took a PowerPoint for Business Group Class with Scott. It was one of the best classes I took so far (my second class at NYIM). The entire day was structured into lessons and Scott covered each lesson in detail. The class was very interactive, he asked us questions throughout the day to keep our attention going, and asked refresher questions on any new tips we learned. He had all PowerPoint presentations ready and was really knowledgeable and well prepared. He also gave us a lot of general information related to PPT which was just fun to know and made the class really enjoyable. I highly recommend Scott for any newcomers and will take another refresher course with him.

Yesterday I took an all day PowerPoint class with Scott. He is a fabulous trainer. I now have an excellent understanding of PP. A booklet is given to each student that reviews all the lessons from the class. This is a tremendous help when you return to your own computer and start to work in this program. Thank you Scott and NYIM Training.

Took a class here. The instructor was great and very knowledgeable, which made the content very easy to understand and learn how to use.
Wiafe M. attended Advanced PowerPoint for Business
The instructor was very helpful. He really knows his PowerPoint. I feel that I got the attention I needed. I think it's wonderful to have a smaller class because that way the instructor has more time to spend with the student. NYIM is the BEST place to take computer classes. I was very impressed with this PowerPoint class.HOORAY!!!! Whatever didn't register in my head is written in black and white in the manual. This makes things more easier for the student. I NEVER had any connection with PowerPoint but today's class has given me a better perspective.

Having participated in a private training session for myself and co-worker as opposed to a group setting I found it to be personal and extremely helpful. I didn't feel as if I were lost as can be the case when part of a group. Our instructor, Scott had an excellent knowledge of the material he presented. He was very professional and patient. I would recommend him for any who are interested in PowerPoint training. I appreciated that he was willing to go over the basics in PowerPoint as a refresher before moving to the advanced version.

Recently took the Advanced PowerPoint for Business class at NYIM and it was actually pretty good. I was very weary of taking this course as I'm a daily PPT user and professional, but it was nice to brush up on some of the things learned eons ago, as well as learn more advanced techniques. Would consider taking another class in a program I'm less familiar with.

A great course to learn the very basic of PowerPoint. The instructor explained in an easy to understand way. No question was left unanswered and he made sure that each student understood the material and was not left behind. The course gave essential tools needed for creating presentations from start to it's completion. I am currently applying learned skills at work. Would highly recommend NYIM Training. I am coming back for PowerPoint for Business Level II.

Watch this short video overview (or the video transcript) for a detailed overview of our beginner PowerPoint class.
Let's take a look at some of the things you'll learn in our Intro to PowerPoint class.
Learning to set up your workspace is extremely important. We'll look at customizing the Quick Access Toolbar as well as other features like customizing the ribbon for presentation builders.
We review how to use the Outline View to create presentations quickly and easily. The Outline Pane is used to add all of the text to your presentation.
I'll type some content in for this particular slide. There's my title. I quickly jumped to the placeholder add my bullets the outline pane makes creating presentations as easy as typing in Word, and it also allows us to edit text across multiple slides.
Not only does the course look into placing images into PowerPoint presentations but it also looks at customizing them. You can use the Adjust features in PowerPoint to do things you would usually do inside of a program like Photoshop, and the style features allow you to do things you would typically do in Illustrator. All of this can be done quickly and efficiently in PowerPoint as well as non-destructively, meaning that I can change or remove any of the features that I had at any later date.
We will also cover Smart Art to build diagrams in minutes instead of hours. Creating them is as easy as typing with the text pane. If I don't like the way it looks, I can very quickly switch from this particular layout to another. It's straightforward for me to choose my colors as well as set the style for the way I want the appearance to look.
As a graphics program, the use of layers is essential in working in PowerPoint. We can rename layers select objects on the slide to work on. I'm going to make this a drop image to place behind the content of the slide. I can do that because I can reorder the layers to make it look the way I want it to look.
We'll deal with animations as well to make your presentations more easily understood. Slide transitions from slide to slide as well as slide animations. For example, I'll add emphasis to this title to draw everybody's eyes to it and to keep my audience from reading ahead. I'll have my bullet points enter one at a time when I'm ready to talk about them.
You'll also learn how to most effectively deliver a presentation including using a feature called Presenter View. This view allows us to quickly see the next slide, the notes that we've left, the current time, and the elapsed time.
And these are just some of the features you'll learn in our Intro to PowerPoint course.
