It was a full day from 10am-5, fast-moving and packed with information on all the Excel basics, including on-the-spot exercises. Really useful for skills in managing all kinds of information and projects. I'd highly recommend this course, and would like to take the L2 when I'm ready!

Just came out of my Excel for Business training. Garfield, the instructor, is really nice And very helpful. They are very professional and they provide all the necessary tools for the students to acquire all the info they need, and, in case you want to refresh your memory you can always retake the course for free within 6 months. Cool, huh? :-)

Fast-paced class, a lot of information in a short amount of time—condensed to most useful tips and tricks. Very glad I was able to participate as I learned a lot more than I already knew. Michael was a great instructor with a very easygoing vibe.
