Sample customer feedback

"Manual very comprehensive. Exercises practical and fed well into course structure."

Natalie Heppenstall (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons)

"Excellent courses which covered everything I wanted to learn and then some. The exercises challenging and interesting. The subject data is a very good idea and appeals to users from any background. This will be my last course for now – I’ve got used to the Minshull Street site! I can’t recommend the courses enough, great site, great trainers, great content. Hopefully my colleagues will be coming to you in the future."

David Bell-Hartley (UHSM NHS Foundation Trust)

"Only having me on the course was very useful and I covered more than the advertised content which was good. I found the C# course (previously attended) to be very useful."

Paul Martin (Ashton Sixth Form College)

"Very useful! Gained lots of knowledge of Excel and refreshed some of my memory."

Kayleigh Walters (Foot Shop Ltd)
