Miss Jill is very good as she's able to keep my interest going. And her sense of humor added to the life of the session.
(4.70 out of 5) Paul M [ 04 June, 2019 ]
I have been using Outlook for many years without any formal training and found the course very informative in demonstrating the power and efficiency of the software. Alot of new concepts were demonstrated and are well outlined in the manual. Jill was very energetic, patient and hardworking in demonstrating the software and the small class was beneficial to all.
(5.00 out of 5) Stacey W [ 21 March, 2019 ]
As an intermediate Outlook user I didn't expect to learn a lot from the Beginner course, but I was pleasantly surprised. I've also done the OneNote course with Paul and I find him to be an extremely knowledgeable and engaging trainer, I was very pleased to be taught by him again.
