Perfect course for employees

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
I learned about Leadership Build through an employee of mine who learned Excel quickly to do specific tasks for our dental practice. I decided to purchase the course to provide professional development for our small staff and the course was exactly what we needed. Pros: very well designed, instructor is great and responsive, you can access the tutorials at any time, lifetime access to the course... Cons: wish there was more content (but understand that it's an accelerated version of Excel).
- Maribel F. Escamilla

Great course for employees

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
I purchased a few licenses so that multiple employees can take the excel course and it's the best course out there since I researched quite a few courses. The accelerated course isn't as extensive as the other ones I saw online (I purchased a licenses for myself just to take a look at the content) but my employees learned the basics SUPER FAST and were able to work on the common spreadsheets we use in our industry. Highly recommend this course.
- Haley Sampson

Perfect course to learn Excel quickly

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
The Excel Accelerating course is great for beginners like me. I am not a computer person and we use Excel at work all the time but I never got around to learning excel. My supervisor purchased the course for me about a month ago and she was really impressed with my excel spreadsheets after completing the class. Thank you for the great course!
- Catalina Rose

I finally learned Excel!

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
Like many others, I was hesitant in purchasing a course on excel when I can easily just learn and look at tutorials on youtube but I've literally been watching youtube videos to learn excel for the last 3 years and nothing. My job asked me to take an excel class and I found Leadership Build online. The course is short and sweet and very detailed. I had a chance to practice what the instructor taught with the spreadsheets the instructor provided and was able to get my certificate super quick. Highly recommend to anyone serious about learning excel
- Teddy Williams

good training

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
The videos seem a little fast at times so I had to go back and replay the video. The teacher is good and the spreadsheets to practice are good.
- Perez P

A proper review for a good course

Excel for Beginners Accelerated Course
I wanted to give a good review to this course for those who are interested in learning the basics of excel. This course is inexpensive and although other courses say they have more lessons and more hours, the Leadership build excel course is great. The course starts off with just navigating excel and where to find things and then moves on to using spreadsheets and tables. In a short period of time I learned how to do basic formulas!!! That was my favorite lesson! I've taken other courses with Leadership Build and they do make great courses. Highly recommend.
- Judy
