Course Description


You've covered many of the basic functions of Microsoft® Office Access®, and now you're ready to learn advanced Access features such as database management, advanced form design, packaging a database, encrypting a database, preparing a database for multiple-user access, and more. Knowledge of these features separate database professionals from the casual database users or occasional designers.

This course is the third part of a three-course series that covers the skills needed to perform basic database design and development in Access 2019.

  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 1 : Focuses on the design and construction of an Access database —viewing, navigating, searching, and entering data in a database, as well as basic relational database design and creating simple tables, queries, forms, and reports.
  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 2 : Focuses on optimization of an Access database, including optimizing performance and normalizing data; data validation; usability; and advanced queries, forms, and reports.
  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 3 (this course): Focuses on managing the database and supporting complex database designs , including import and export of data; using action queries to manage data; creating complex forms and reports; macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA); and tools and strategies to manage, distribute, and secure a database.

This course covers Microsoft Office Specialist Program exam objectives to help you prepare for the Access Expert (Office 363 and Office 2019): Exam MO-500 certification.
