The course was what I wanted to get me more familiar with Word and how to navigate the program, it was a great course. thank you

(4.90 out of 5) [ 10 April, 2024 ]

Very informative & valuable course for beginners. Especially if you have had little to no computer experience. Would probably benefit form repeating & building on current skills

(4.80 out of 5) [ 20 March, 2024 ]

For the first hour or so, I really wasn't sure we were going to cover the subjects due to technical issues by one attendee who was struggling with her set up however Cath was remarkably patient. The pace did speed up and I then learnt quite a few things.
