All our courses meet the highest criteria but don't just take our word for it, see what some of our clients have said:

  • "I really enjoyed the course. It was indepth, intense and very educational. It fits in very well with our current situation of migration from v4.x to v5.x and re-enforces the training received so far with View 5.1 Looking forwards to passing the exam." Richard M, Anglia Ruskin University
  • "The two trainers, Troy and Lucas, were excellent. Very knowledgeable and patient." Alison James, EDF Energy
  • "The feedback I have received from our employees was all positive. They said the course was extremely useful, and the trainer was good, with good knowledge and a good style of training. He asked them at the outset what they wanted to cover in the content of the day, which was good. He also covered examples of problems in excel that they provided with him and helped them solve."
