Snow Business testimonial – working alongside staff in Excel

The session was very well structured with a good combination of theory and practical work. It was very useful to do individual examples of each task and the course notes are thorough without being confusing. John was a great teacher and catered for all knowledge levels. The pace of the day was great, at no point did we feel John was moving on too quickly but the sessions didn’t ‘drag’.

Redwing Solutions – Training Staff in Microsoft 365

Both John & Rachel have provided 1-2-1 training for our team for several years and each time the training has been excellent and informative. Recently John & Rachel have been carrying out training for our Kickstart Employee in Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Publisher, which has helped her gain a lot of confidence in using the Microsoft Packages. We were also lucky enough to have John carry out a bespoke Advanced Word course for 2 other members of the team which was in depth and very helpful. Both John & Rachel’s training skills and techniques are fantastic, and they are both extremely patient and conscientious throughout the day, ensuring that everyone understands each section before moving on to the next. We would highly recommend JPL to anyone wishing to get themselves & their team up to date with any IT training!
