Sample customer feedback

"Well thought out course, small class size so able to ask question; also given enough content to take away. Referred by colleague, would refer to others."

Mark Anderton (NHS Leeds CCG)

"Good content and pace - perfect."

Darren Harriss (Shell Global Solutions (UK))

"It was a great two days, learnt so much. I think that I have only been programming for 2 months that understanding the usage and application of VBA was difficult. However, worthwhile as now I have started looking at my work in a completely different way. Thanks to the training!"

Nathan Sexton (University of Kent)

"The Excel VBA macros course had great resources including a manual to keep for future reference. The trainer was very helpful and able to answer all questions including our own-macro specific questions. The course speed and content was tailored throughout to match the audience and incorporated effective interaction throughout both days."

Lisa Johnstone (Axis-Shield Diagnostics Ltd)

"Thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to the vast possibilities of VBA."

Matthew Walker (BerryWorld Ltd)
