CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- 'Microsoft Outlook -- It Does More Than E-mail?' and 'Microsoft Access,' will be offered by the University of Northern Iowa Regional Business Center (RBC), in partnership with Ketels Contract Training.

'Microsoft Outlook -- It Does More Than E-mail?' will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon, on Thursday, Nov. 13, at the RBC office, 212 E. Fourth St., Waterloo, and will be taught by Chris McGregor-Case. The course will teach time-saving and project-management tips using Outlook. Microsoft Outlook is a complete personal information management system that integrates e-mail with an interactive calendar, contacts list, notes and a task manager.

'Microsoft Access,' will be offered three consecutive Fridays, from 8 a.m. to noon, beginning Friday, Nov. 7, at the RBC office. The three-session course will cover two modules. Case will cover beginning topics in module 1. Module 2 will cover intermediate and advanced issues. Microsoft Access is a database that provides quick, selective access to information to increase productivity. The program is suited for small companies because it allows them to retain internal control of sensitive data, works seamlessly with other Microsoft products, and is easy to use.

The fee for 'Microsoft Outlook -- It Does More Than E-mail?' is $119. 'Microsoft Access' can be paid per module, $125 for Module 1 and $249 for Module 2, or both Modules together for $349. The registration deadline for both courses is Friday, Nov. 7. For more information, contact the UNI RBC at (319) 236-8123, or visit
