Microsoft Visio lets you create business and technical diagrams that help you visualise your complex systems, sharpen communication and transform your business processes.
With Visio, you’ll spend less time designing, documenting and maintaining processes and systems.
You can train new employees faster and communicate complex information clearly, concisely and effectively in a way that text and numbers alone cannot.
This Microsoft Visio training course will teach you how to use Visio to transform your ideas and information into understanding and action. It is an easy way to transform complex ideas into easy to read and follow charts and diagrams, as the saying goes, a picture is worth a 1000 words. Learn how to create your own custom stencils with your most often used shapes, link shapes to multiple data sources such as SQL and Excel and create an organisation chart from employee data.
This course is instructor led, and involves working on a number of practical, hands on examples and exercises in a workshop environment. Led by highly experienced Microsoft Visio trainers with many years of experience our hands-on courses mean that you will leave with lots of practical experience as well as useful tips and tricks.
Take advantage of refreshed templates and thousands of shapes that meet industry standards including Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.4, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) compliance. This enables you to create industry standard drawings that can be recognised worldwide.
Here is an example of a simple flowchart:
We use version 2013 to train on as this is virtually identical to other versions. If you book a private course with us at either our office or yours we are able to train in any version.
Some people have decided that Visio still doesn’t quite give the flexibility required for architectural floorplans and have decided to choose AutoCAD instead, which we can also provide training for. Click here for details.
Visio helps you transform your ideas and information into understanding and action.

This course assumes that you have gained a basic understanding of Windows. This includes an ability to work with multiple windows and navigate the desktop, as well as having an understanding of computer file storage (i.e. drives, files and folders)
Stencils are Visio’s name for a palette of shapes, this can range from basic shapes to office furniture to network diagram symbols. Visio uses industry standard symbols in it’s stencils so that the drawings you produce will be understood worldwide.
Using shapes in Visio is simple, just drag and drop. You an then resize and alter your shape to suit your diagram. Once you have perfected your shape use time saving techniques to move it around, flip it, etc.
