Word processing

This module enables candidates to demonstrate the ability to use a word processing application to accomplish everyday tasks associated with creating, formatting and finishing small-sized word processing documents such as letters and other everyday documents.

  • Prepare documents for mail merge operations
  • Adjust document page settings and check and correct spelling before finally printing documents
