Senior Landscape Manager
Graham Slocombe BSc(Hons), MHort(RHS), MIHort(Landscape Manager)
I have undertaken 2 different one-on-one advanced training courses with Best STL. I can confirm that they are fully professional and extremely knowledgeable in their fields of expertise. My first training course with them was in Access VBA and my second in advanced Excel and Project.
Working as a Senior Landscape Manager in my own field of specialism I am a power user of MS Office, especially: Access, Word, Excel, Project and also AutoCAD. I push the limits of any software that I use. When I reached my thresholds I turned to Best STL to expand my knowledge and on both occasions I have not been disappointed.
I would happily recommend Best STL for one-on-one training in any Office software. Though I have not done a conventional class with them, where other students are present, I am sure this would be equally beneficial. I left both my training sessions feeling that I had advanced my skills considerably. I thus have recommended Best STL to my interior work associates and with confidence can do the same here publicly.
Knew the subject matter, had good exercises to do and also good practices.
The trainer is a very clear and concise trainer. He was very patient with the varying levels of skill in the room and worked through the content with enthusiasm and related examples back to the delegates work places.
Would definitely recommend and will be using what I've learnt tomorrow!
