Hear what our successful students have to say about the Excel 1 course…

The way I used the course was to listen to the video, read the material per lesson, then do the exercise and quiz. I found that this way if any concepts I did not quite fully understand after the video – reading the material helped to clarify. If I needed clarification, it was great to be able to reach to ask questions. The best part of being able to reach out to the instructor. I also like taking courses online as it eliminates my travel time to and from a location and I can fit it into my busy life and schedule. I found the material and videos were both well done.

Nancy of Calgary, AB, Completed the Excel 1 Course

I really enjoyed this course, it touched a little on everything without being overwhelming. I have previously taken an in depth spreadsheet class in college a couple years ago and this was an excellent way to refresh my memory. This course also highlighted things that’s mostly used in an every day job situation. I am looking forward to your next course and learning more.
