Excellent course and trainer. I would recommend the course, I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised and found it very interesting. I found this course very useful and was a lot more interesting than I originally thought it might be. Susan was lovely, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I thought I knew a fair amount about the day-to-day use of Microsoft Word, however, Susan taught me a lot a tips and tricks which I will be using and showing to others! Improvements as mentioned above.

Excellent course and trainer. I would recommend the course as very useful and informative. What I found most useful was understanding what and why things had been going wrong when updating work instructions. understanding how styles impact on what you are doing.

I would definitely recommend the course to anyone who need to amend/create official documents as it covers a lot of quality of life features I wasn’t aware existed on Word. The course was very interactive which made the course very approachable.

Excellent course and trainer. Yes I would definitely recommend it. I was self taught with Microsoft Word and had no idea of the error of my ways and did not realise many of the useful functions even existed before going on the training. Susan the trainer was excellent, able to fit in our requests and tailor the session to our needs. I like the fact you get to keep the training manual and the course files to refer to. Very useful to help use the training in real life. Excellent venue. Really liked the new room.
