About the Program

This series, which is intended for new Access users, introduces the most important features in Access which users need to know to work with Access databases. Participants will learn how to work with complex databases, use Access forms to build user-friendly interfaces, and analyze the data using Access's queries and reports tools.

All courses include:

  • Step-by-step instruction
  • Exercise files to allow you to work along
  • Instructional videos for reinforcement
  • Quizzes to check comprehension

Each course in this series is fully online and self-paced. Each course might take two to four hours if completed in its entirety. Content can be explored non-sequentially, as well.

A certificate will be rewarded upon successful completion of the final online exam for this series.


About purchasing enrollments as part of a series or as single courses

Purchase here as a series to view and track your progress in the entire series. 

If you would like to take only some of the courses in this program individually, you can browse  IT Training's course catalog in IU Expand  and enroll in only the courses you would like to take individually. 

If you complete all of the courses in this series individually, you can still earn a certificate by purchasing and passing the final online exam separately. 

If you purchase this series, please DO NOT also purchase an individual course that is also in this series, as you would be paying for the course twice.
