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 attended the Powerpoint course last week at NYIM and really enjoyed it. No doubt you'll find them to be helpful!
I was extremely nervous but it turned out GREAT! Scott was a great instructor, funny and patient. Stopped when I needed extra info without making me feel like an idiot.
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.
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.
Thank you for the coffee, teas and all the goodies out in the common area

PowerPoint for Business is a great place to start for those interested both in learning how to use PowerPoint, as well as those that want to learn how to use it better. The course is as much about functionality, as it is about efficiency, so even those users who say they already know “the basics” can walk away with a toolkit of skills to significantly increase their effectiveness with the software.
Naturally, the course begins with basic features and such, but then quickly moves into alternative methods for developing a presentation: using the outline view. The outline view involves building a text-based outline in PowerPoint while allowing the software to populate the text within appropriate placeholders on each slide simultaneously.
Next, we cover different types of objects: images, SmartArt diagrams, and drawing shapes. Each lesson involves both creating your own example, as well as editing pre-existing ones. Tables and charts are also explained, with the focus being on how to create a table or chart from scratch (as opposed to importing one from another program).
Time is then devoted to proofing, editing, and printing (not just how to print, but what to print based on the situation). Printing can greatly enhance a presentation, as the presenter can choose from a variety of printouts: full page slides, notes pages, outlines, or audience handouts.
Transitions and animations each receive their own lesson, as well. Transitions define how each slide progresses (or transitions) to the next one, regarding effects. Does the current slide fade out slowly, as the next one fades in? Is it pushed from left-to-right? Or maybe wiped from top-down? Animations dictate how the contents of a slide react. Does each bullet point appear in rapid succession? Or does one exit, before the next one enters? Transitions and animations, when used appropriately, can have a strong impact on those viewing your presentation.
Finally, we spend some time discussing how to run a PowerPoint presentation, by covering such topics as navigating, annotating, and the advantage of using Presenter View.
