Course was fantastic - very informative, and covered majority of what i need for Power Point Presentations

(4.20 out of 5) [ 12 February, 2024 ]

This course was very informative and beneficial as it helped me revise on key aspects on PowerPoint that I can confidently use again during work.

(5.00 out of 5) [ 17 January, 2024 ]

I have done PowerPoint training before so this was a refresher. I discovered some valuable information that I didn't previously know and learnt about transitions which has always intimidated me. The instructor was great in managing some of the technical issues I had due to the system requirements on my work laptop.

(5.00 out of 5) [ 17 January, 2024 ]

I've really enjoyed today's training with Cath and feel that I've gained some fantastic insights. Definitely will hope to continue with an Advanced Course over the coming months, once these skills have been practiced and bedded in a little more in practice. Thank you
