Visio stands out as a remarkable tool that makes communication simple, powerful, and straight to the point.

It helps you brainstorm, visualize, and prepare the most essential, world-class, professional diagrams and drawings, such as flowcharts, process charts, organizational charts, IT diagrams, floor plans, etc. And, most important, it allows you to do it very fast.

In this class, you'll learn from scratch how you can benefit from Visio in your everyday work. You will be able to quickly learn and understand everything that Visio has to offer to you. You will also quickly become comfortable with its user interface, terminology, tools, and features that can make your work easier.
