Course Outline
Most organizations maintain and manage large amounts of information. One of the most efficient and powerful information management computer applications is the relational database. Information can be stored, linked, and managed using a single relational database application and its associated tools. In this course, you will be introduced to the concept of the relational database by using the Microsoft® Office Access 2007 relational database application and its information management tools.

This is a 2 day course designed for students who wish to learn the basic operations of the Access 2007 database program to perform their day-to-day responsibilities, and to understand the advantages that using a relational database program can bring to their business processes. The Level 1 course is for the individual whose job responsibilities include working with tables to create and maintain records, locate records, and produce reports based on the information in the database. It also provides the fundamental knowledge and techniques needed to advance to more technical Access responsibilities, such as creating and maintaining new databases.

The student will also consider how to maintain data consistency, how to customize database components, and how to share Access data with other applications.

Great one day training! Very informative!

I can bearly see the blackboard due to the light.

With respect to the Training Provider, they offered what seemed to be a very detailed manual; however, the instructor followed his own agenda for teaching. Although I'm certain the same material was covered (plus extras, which are appreciated), by not following the manual, it makes it more difficult for a student to take notes. It would have been easier to add notes to the manual, as needed - than trying to capture subject, background info, and the relevent point I am trying to capture on a loose sheet of paper.

The course was good,however, the instructor was way too dry. He didn't engage the students very much, except to ask if there were any questions which made it a little boring.
Reviewed by 2013
While the instructor was delightful I did not feel she had a good enough grasp of the program. There were often times when a student may have missed a step and she was unable to intuitively know what they'd missed and so the entire class would have to start from the beginning. Unfortunately this class left me more confused than when I'd walked in, and also left me less confident than I'd been after Level 1.

As this was a beginner course and I have never used power point, the time given to practice the information provided I felt was not adequate.

It was really hot in the room - I know this is a persistent problem with clients - some like it hot, some like it cold! We didn't get to all the topics - I guess I'd rather have this and really understand the topics we did cover; but I needed chart work which we didn't get to.

The course was short but our instructor was very good and explained the concepts that was easy to understand. I like the fact that she didn't just give us the course textbook and have us go through it and instead had her own training agenda with the textbook serving as a supplemental item. I didn't have too much experience with SharePoint 2010 and I didn't have any issues keeping up with the course. Would definitely recommend this course for those that are interested in SharePoint Workflow.

The instructor, JASON HALL, had a fluent, practical, hands-on and knowledgeable style of involving the partipants directly with the software. This was vastly superior to laboriously going thru the course material linearly page after page. We didn't doze off and he answered questions and immediately dealt with individual issues in working through the residential housing project example. I would take another class from Jason Hall.
Reviewed by 2013
The instructor was not helpful as she just read the book to us and went step by step. I could have just bought the book and did that myself. It needed REAL world relevance
Reviewed by 2013
The overhead screen was difficult to see. The instructor went very fast and did not check to ensure that we were all up to where he was - this caused us to go back several times. More consideration needs to be made to ensure each participant is at the right place, can see the board, and the instructor needs to slow down so he is not continuing to instruct while we are catching up, as several of us missed a few things.

The instructor wasted lot of time in discussing things that are not required for this training and had less hours to spend on actual matter.

this course could have been cut into half a day with the material we covered. 80% of the day was spent with the instructor talking about his life, and irrelevant things. Although he had a great energy and spirit.... The day was a bit too long. Half day course of basics would have been perfect.
Reviewed by 2012
Instructor was very self-absorbed and spent more time talking about himself than Microsoft Word. We paid a lot of money to take the course and would have benefited from the instructor talking more about Word rather than hearing about his travels, the food he ate, the airbrushing on his daughter's skate board , his clients, how busy and important he is, his hiking plans for the weekend, how his buddy was at his house drinking his scotch, his best friend's battle with colon cancer, his daughter's travel future plans to base camp 2 of Everest, his dogs personalities, his friend in the police force, his upcoming trip to Thailand, and the worst of all....his divorce proceedings. It was such a shame that he knew so much about Word but had a problem actually staying focused and teaching us about it. He had a couple of minutes to complete the material and broke into another story instead, he ran over the 4pm class time frame and never finished going through the material unless people wanted to stay late!
Reviewed by 2012
With all the valuable insights and topics to cover, I feel that this should be a two day course; we only got through half of the course book in the one day. While the rest of the material could be done by self-directed learning, others in my class agreed that they wouldn't have time to learn the rest on their own time. The course description indicated that I would be learning all the material but we simply didn't get that far. The computers, desks, and chairs were certainly not ergonomic. I would encourage the facility to consider this next time they upgrade their equipment & furniture.

the course seemed to contain quite a bit of project management rather than strictly program operations and fundamentals. could use more hands on with features and abilities of the program

The material was presented well. I felt that the pace of the class could have gone faster (but I do have a software developer background so that could be partly the reason). I was hoping to have some time during class, say the last hour or so to work my way through the exercises provided in the binder. I did appreciate the last part on Sharepoint Developer and did like the hands-on approach. Otherwise it was a good course and I felt that it was valuable to me.

Jason Hall is fantastic and I look forward to taking another course with him. My last experience at New Era was not great; the instructor did not meet our expectations and the computers were not working when we arrived. But Jason made the day fly by and I felt like I learned not only the set curriculum but gained lots of additional presentation skills.

The course was very helpful and the instructor was very knowledgable and made the effort to make sure all class members were understanding the excersizes and were on the same page. My only complaint is that the computers seemed a little worn out. Throughout the day most students in the class ran into some sort of issue with the computer not working the way it should. And during our practice time closer to the end of the day all the computers started crashing.

The course was excellent, but I felt a little out of my league. The participants in the course were designers and IT people who had used other versions of SharePoint. While I benefited from their questions and comments during the class, I feel "lost" now that I'm back on my own at the office. Perhaps I was in the wrong coarse, but it did say power "user".
