Testimonials:

The resource person was obviously very well-prepared which was very helpful in encouraging his students/audience to actively listen and participate. The topics discussed were very helpful and relevant especially to us accountants who deal with large number of data everyday.

The training was well-organized. Timeline of activities were followed. Reminders and training materials with consent forms were shared in advance via email with a step-by-step guide on how to answer the pre-test through the OTRS. Plus, it’s good that the participants have a portal were we can track the trainings we have enrolled and the padlet where we can share our thoughts and key takeaways.

The resource person is a very approachable and patient resource person. He answers the participants questions with clear explanation and guides them again in performing the functions/commands by simulating it again. He also makes the training mood lighter through his little segue of good jokes.

I believe the topics discussed are really helpful. We can use/apply it in our work tasks such as mail merging, charts, keyboard shortcuts. Also there are features/functions that were introduced to us and it was my first time to encounter and use it, too. Hence, it broaden my knowledge in excel. Yet, hoping there would be more drills/examples where participants can work on and give them ample time to follow/complete/simulate the activities.
