    All the tips were really useful. I considered myself fairly proficient in word and excel, but the tips I got showed me a number of ways to do things better. It was also very useful seeing the different btw 2003 and 2010, as I’m sure we`ll get question
    - Anthony

    Excellent standard
    - Peter
  • Office Upgrade Training Course
    I thought that Craig did an excellent job of balancing the very short time frame available to him, and the varying information needs and skill levels of the participants
    - Linda
  • Office Upgrade Training Course
    Craig was a fantastic trainer! It was an incredibly useful session and you made everything understandable.
    - Claire
  • Office Upgrade Training Course
    That is a bit too rush and too brief. More opportunities to practice would be better. No chance to introduce excel at all.
    - Susan
  • Office Upgrade Training Course
    Everything is great
