Welcome to our new blog! We hope this will become a really good source for computer hints and tips.

We are Amethyst Training, Microsoft Applications Training Provider, located in Chippenham, Wiltshire.  Let me start by telling you a little about us….

The company was originally set up in 2006 with the main training style being classroom based with courses available in Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word, to name a few.

Courses are still very much our core business but we are constantly developing new training techniques based on the latest technology.  Have a look a look at our new website to see what other exciting things we offer.

We would love to hear what you think of the website, get in touch, and let us know.

Our courses cover lots of versions of Windows including 365, so if you need any help with the new features such as OneNote, OneDrive or Skype for business, just give us a shout.  They really do make sharing and working with others a lot easier!


One last thing for today, have you seen Microsoft for Education?  Schools are using Skype technology to link up around the world, so a classroom in England can be speaking and sharing a live project with a class in Australia.  Amazing!! I guess the world isn’t such a big place after all!

Let us know how you use Skype and what you think of kids and schools connecting.


See you next time, Karen
