Course Reviews

Very thorough course with great content – the tutors were professional and informative and I was made to feel very comfortable to ask any questions I had. After the three days were up I felt completely confident in my ability to use the new version of office, and ready to take my exam.

Thoroughly recommend. I thought I was a Microsoft expert however was surprised at just how much I didn't know, and managed to pick up in three days. It's also great to know I can call upon the tutor if I have any further questions.

Professional tutors, great learning atmosphere and fantastic value for money; I really wasn't expecting to learn as much as I did. The content was all extremely relevant to my job and I'm looking forward to putting what I learned into practice – the short cuts will definitely save me some time!

From day one it was obvious that the tutors were very knowledgeable and I would learn a lot from them in just three short days. I was worried about taking my exam before, and felt pretty overwhelmed by all the new information I was required to know. Now I don't just feel prepared for it, I feel confident. Bring it on!
