Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
would be great if this course can be taught in 2 days so that there is time to digest at slower pace and there is enought time for exercises. There are so much topics to cover and one day does not seem to be enough.

very good training although considering the comprehensiveness of course contencts, might be better to go on two day sched even if the price gets a little higher. Students can only absorb so much so if lessons are condensed in a day, retention might be reduced.

It was a useful course for me and the instructor was great she made the subject interesting

Although the course was fine. And I learned some new information, so many people in the course had used Excel before that some smaller points were missed as it was assumed that you could say them once, quickly, and we could get it. If you are going to call it a beginner course, you should stress on the website that only beginners should attend. I didn't appreciate the course content to it's fullest because I do not know how to use excel. I took the course for that specific reason...because I do not know how to use excel. After the course, I don't believe I learned as much of the basics as I could have.

I found the Focus on Leadership Workshop very informative and I really appreciated the interactiveness of the session. The Instructor was professional and knowledgeable. I have applied many of the teachings concepts in my role and I would definitely attend future sessions. Thank you!

This training school was excellent! All of the staff were very friendly, courteous and professional. The instructor was marvellous! I learned so much more than I could have if I had taken this course online. I not only learned the course material but the instructor answered other unrelated questions that I had. Highly recommended!!

Would like to have access/print out to presentation as well (so that we don't have to write down what is on the powerpoint slides)

Krishna is a great instructor! He is very knowledgeable, patient with the students, and very encouraging. He helps make the daunting task of learning Excel approachable. Thanks Krishna!!!

1) Instructor should clearly map out course schedule (ie.break & lunch times, end time). 2) Screen was hard to see. You could use zoom function on projector to utilize full screen and make information more visible. 3) Course workbook should be put online for easy of access to information.

Maybe two day instead of one day. A lot to go over in one day.

I was not happy with the computer, I had to change over to another computer due to defect. This took time away from the course for myself and others. The instructor spoke too fast. Difficult to use the computer screen and the overhead at the same time due to the instructor moving too quickly. He seemed frustrated with questions and/or if I wasn't understanding fast enough.

Krishna did a very good job in teaching us about Excel (level 2). Can you please provide his email address to me? Thanks, Don Kajiwara.

It was a very informative course and the instructor was awesome! The only thing I would change would be the positioning of the projector because I couldn't see everything that was going on.

I would like to see the course separated into categories: Effective Minute Taking: Beginner; Effective Minute Taking: Intermediate; Effective Minute Taking: Advanced. There was a wide variety of skill levels in the course and it dragged for the more experienced participants because of reviewing information that was fairly basic. Overall the course was worthwhile and I certainly did take away some good pointers.

the organization had no environment consciousness using Styrofoam and not being able to tell me where paper recycling was. The invoice didn't have the times of the seminar which is extremely annoying as I need for PD hours purposes. The end time listed on their site said 4:30? but the instructor said usually 3:30 - 4 so that would be better. Maybe they are trying to seem longer for value purposes but thank goodness it ended at 4. The instructor was not inspiring. I know, coding is the most exciting subject yet I have been to other workshops that was entertaining on way dryer subjects. maybe if he showed some of the capabilities at the beginning to amaze the class it would have helped to motivate the learning of the basic code which by the way the entire morning can be fond in a 15 minute you tube video. If you are looking for cheap PD and you bring something else to do (I had my iPad)and have low expectations then...actually, no I am sure you can find something else.

Other students slowed down the course, not the instructors fault.

Beverly was wonderful. My only feedback would be that this should be a 2 day coarse or there should be an "Advanced Communication Skills" workshop.

Instructor was extremely patient and understanding with a room full of different levels. He explained well and added humour to a long day - thank you!

Excellent instructor. The location of the facility is difficult to find as there are few street addresses on Georgia. A note stating it is in the bank building would have been helpful.

Instruction seemed rather disjointed. Instructor's focus could have been better, along with his preparation. First off he couldn't get the projector to work, then couldn't find the examples he wanted to show. When asked a question, he veered off topic and then it was difficult to get back on track.

Only suggestion I would make it that more time should be spent on some aspects to ensure everyone has a complete grasp of the concepts. Some attendees had difficulty in keeping up with the instructor's coverage of the material.
Reviewed by 2013
The class was a good size to encourage questions and discussion. The instructor was very good at assessing the knowledge and experience of the class and shaped the instruction accordingly (the other value of a relatively small class). I much prefer these full one day intensive courses to 12 weeks of 2 hours a night every Wednesday...

There wasnt enough taught in the course. I didnt find it went into enough detail and the handout is terribly written. The instructor was okay but he focused too much on how "Not to do something" then how to just do it correctly, on certain course material which confused people. I think less breaks, more days added so we can learn more about what MS project has to offer.

The course was great and helped me learn a lot of skills using Excel for work. The instructor was really nice and knowledgable. Although my only complaint and concern is that the course was really rushed and i feel like some people wouldnt be able to keep up with the training.

I'd like to see a course at this level that is more in depth. More practice excercises, over a longer period of time. I was pleased the instructor made himself available to students even after the course was complete (gave us his email if we had any follow up questions).

Haven't really looked over the course book much as I made lots of notes. Only comment re: technlogy was I had no internet connection which was a bit of a hassle during the lunch break as I wanted to check my email and my company website and had to use another desk.
