Training FAQs


Our online training is designed to re-create the classroom Excel training experience as closely as possible.

It is a live training session using Zoom or Microsoft Teams as a virtual classroom. Your trainer is there throughout.

The training is still hands-on, so you need to have the software installed on your own computer.

The trainer will share their screen to demonstrate Excel techniques and there is also the option of being able to share your screen if you are really stuck!

Our focus is on you being a faster, more capable Excel user when you return to work.

Our Microsoft Excel courses combine traditional teaching to explain new concepts and tools with hands-on exercises.

The exercises ensure that you get plenty of time to try out what you have just been taught and ask questions if there is anything you’re unsure of.

Our training computers use Office 2016 (2020 update).

If you use Office 365 or MS Excel 2016, 2013 or 2010 don’t worry.

The look and functionality of Excel has changed very little between recent versions.

This means that all of our training is just as relevant for users of these versions.

Our trainers have lived and breathed Excel for many years.

If you have any questions relating to other versions of Excel, that’s no problem, they’ll be very happy to answer them for you.

Yes. We provide all attendees on our course with certificates.

Please come wearing whatever you are most comfortable in, we do not have a dress code for our training courses.

Most people come wearing casual clothes.

Our London training centre is centrally located in the City of London.

It is a 3-minute walk from both Blackfriars tube station and Thameslink station.

For full details on our London centre see this link: London location

Our public Excel courses use Windows computers, not Excel for Mac.

However, this is not an issue if you use Excel for Mac.

Excel for Mac and Windows Excel are identical, with only a couple of very small differences, and so our courses will still be highly relevant for you.

It is helpful for us to know that you are an Excel for Mac user, so please let us know when booking.
