Why Afinety University?
Reviews of our educational sessions
I’ve learned a lot from the Afinety U sessions and it’s been a great help for day to day work.”
“This was a great, quick tutorial of some great time saver tips. I will be using these new tips in my day-to-day work. I prefer to use keyboard strokes for formatting and previously found Word difficult, as I was always having to reach for that mouse!”
“Diana understands the workings of a law office and her practical tips and the knowledge she shares helps to make preparing legal documents less stressful.”
“For anyone that has occassional struggles with headers/footers, section breaks and page numbers, etc., I would HIGHLY recommend taking this course. It’s very informative, there is literature to refer to and it’s super easy to follow the instructors instructions.”
