The excel courses were packed with information and detail. The courses had a great atmosphere and the handouts to take back to work were really helpful. The trainer also made the course good fun and put you at your ease. Overall a very positive experience and I would highly recommend them.

I attended a Basic Excel course. The instructor was friendly and excellent with time and patience for everyone. The course was paced according to the attendees’ experience and needs. There was a laptop for everyone and we all enjoyed the course. I am looking forward to the Intermediate Excel course next time.
