It would be an advantage to have attended the MS Access Basic course, but if the user is not going to be designing tables and ONLY going to be using existing data i.e. SQL tables or tables that have already been set up, they can start with this course.  

The delegates must have basic Windows skills; handling the mouse, opening and finding documents and basic typing skills.  Excel knowledge would be an advantage, but is not essential.
