Comments and Testimonials

Chamber of Commerce – Excel training for ISO

JPL IT Training provided Excel training for ISO at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce. The course was Intermediate Excel and 10 people attended and gave us great feedback on their Linked In profile.
John Legge has been an absolute dream of a trainer and made it so engaging that we didn’t even notice how the evening came!
Safe to say that we now know all about Fn button (and yes, we love it) and Control + Strange Button! Most of us had a very basic knowledge of Excel and we have definitely gained an in-depth knowledge and learned a lot that we haven’t known before!

We wanted to share a quick note and let you know that you did a really good job on giving us the training that we need for Excel and PowerPoint.

As we all know these both are big topics which suit every company differently. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to tailor this course to our needs.

John is an excellent trainer and very generous with his tips. We were also very impressed by the excellent and efficient before and after communication in between us.

The whole team benefitted greatly from the day. We are looking forward booking more courses provided by you.

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’.

John is an excellent trainer and has helped many of our staff members become competent users of Excel, which has ultimately improved efficiencies when performing their job roles. John’s “learn by doing” style of teaching is very effective as it enables the trainees to get hands-on experience while they develop their skills within the system.
