    Well-defined training

    The training was conducted in a methodical manner. The course exceeded my expectations as I didn’t realise that a standard of high quality is maintained by the institute. I have a relative understanding of Excel, however, Excel 2016 contains new features which I was not completely aware of. I was able to learn all of this during my training.

    Great product

    The course in Microsoft Excel 2016 was one of the many courses I looked at when I first decided to use e-learning to enhance my education. I think I made a good choice and couldn’t be more pleased with the result. I came into the training not knowing much of Excel, but all that changed by the end of it. I had become a pro in this regard.

    Good customer service

    The customer support was very good. I can attest to this fact as I had some technical issues at the start of the course which was taken care of right away. I didn’t have any concerns thereafter, and was surprised at the way a representative continued to check up on me.
