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.

Melissa, Civil Aviation Authority

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.

Caroline, Civil Aviation Authority

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.

Daniel, Civil Aviation Authority

Brilliant course facilitated very well. The course was structured really well and presented with expertise and professionalism. I liked how we were asked first thing what we would like from the course to ensure this was covered in the material.

Robin, Civil Aviation Authority

Excellent course and trainer. Definitely would recommend the course to others. Word has changed a lot over the years and it is very useful to know all the shortcuts and new features.

Dena, Civil Aviation Authority

I would recommend the course to others as course content is very good and excellent trainer. Excellent trainer and very helpful content for what I need. Picked up a lot of tips on how to use Word, and was shown things I didn’t know how to do.

Bradley, Welland Medical

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.

Richard, Welland Medical

Excellent Course and Trainer, setting up word documents can really be messed up before you type a word, this course takes you at an advanced level right to the styles and formatting, which is integral to a great document. It was very fast paced, which is expected in an advanced course.
