(5.00 out of 5) Heidi T [ 04 July, 2018 ]
Jill was a great instructor and provided clear instructions about each topic and went through it slowly and clearly. She was happy to answer any questions we had. The course covered all the basics and was very thorough. A great course!
(5.00 out of 5) Carmel C [ 30 May, 2018 ]
I thought the course was well presented and attendees had the opportunity to understand the instructions prior to moving to the next topic in the course. Having had some experience with excel I still found the beginners course invaluable and have learned many functions/options that will assist in completing spreadsheet creation in more efficient time frames.
(4.90 out of 5) Charmian F [ 23 May, 2018 ]
So helpful for someone who has worked off Macs for the last seven years and only recently come into a working environment where there was a need for Microsoft software, particularly spreadsheets.
(5.00 out of 5) Loren D [ 21 May, 2018 ]
Jay was a fantastic trainer. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable,and well paced. The content covered was excellent, I certainly walked away from this course with a better understanding of the fundamentals, which has helped to understand the why behind so many functions for work.
