What people say about our Excel training

(Jackie) was interesting and upbeat during training. A great deal of knowledge and assistance was provided. Zodiac Aerospace

... went the extra mile to give me additional information and shortcuts that the books didn't cover. I learned a lot from this class/training that will help throughout my day-to-day projects. I would highly recommend (Jackie) for future training.

I highly recommend the Excel ... class to anybody who wants to learn ... Excel. Jackie teaches the class at a pace that is enjoyable.

Learning how to use Excel spreadsheets has enabled me to record and interpret data in a MUCH FASTER and more efficient way. I had been putting off how to use Excel, and Jackie greatly relieved my anxiety by showing me the ropes of Excel and making it easy for me to learn. David Redding, M.D. Redding Allergy and Asthma Center

Very personable. Provided good training materials. Provided opportunities to answer questions. Practice exercises (were done well).

Walked through every aspect of questions the group had. Kept the attention of everyone, tailored (courses) to our needs. Explained to where everyone could grasp concepts.

(What Jackie did well) Everything from explaining unfamiliar material to simplifying information to relay to class; she is excellent. Coca-Cola Company

(Jackie) also encouraged participation and answered all questions clearly. Zodiac Aerospace

Jackie allowed time for candid questions and real life work/application questions. Zodiac Aerospace

(Jackie) Answered questions, but also allowed us to solve practice problems on our own. I liked the "pop quiz" type problems.
