No more Classroom Training in Sydney

Our online Microsoft Excel training courses have been online since 2007 after we closed the last of our three training centres in Sydney (Dee Why, Gordon and Parramatta). Our Excel training courses are designed and created so you can progress through each of the 9 micro courses in about 3-4 hours (depending on your current skill level).

We designed our courses this way because that is how people learn – in short sessions. You can complete each Micosoft Excel Micro Course in the morning and then get on with the rest of your life, or completed it at the end of the day.

Thorough, well-designed and supported Online Courses


Our courses have been updated continuously since 1996 so they are detailed, thorough and up-to-date. These courses include

  • training manuals with step-by-step exercises (downloadable in a PDF format)
  • exercise files for you to open, use and modify (not locked or protected)
  • video tutorials of between 2-5 minutes (to cover very specific topics)
  • the video tutorials explain how to use the software to complete the exercises (not just a talking head)
  • knowledge review assessment tests (to re-enforce your knowledge of important parts of each course).
  • support via phone, sms, email or website chat (when you need it)
  • a 30 day money back guarantee (because we are very confident)
