“Coming into the Excel course at Learning Tree, I had zero knowledge of the program, so using teamwork to complete the hands-on exercises worked great. I now have all the basics—plus lots of tips, tricks, and shortcuts. I’m excited to apply what I learned when I get back to work, and I plan to move on to the next level course!”
