About Paul Brown Training

Paul Brown Training are a National training provider and can deliver all Microsoft desktop training onsite anywhere in the UK from as little as £55 per person. We supply all the training equipment needed and can also provide laptops, so that all you need is a suitable office.

We believe that the best way to learn to use any software is to actually practise with it. For this reason all our Microsoft training courses are very ‘hands on’. Tutor-led demonstrations are immediately followed up with practical exercises on the software. In this way delegates build up a repertoire of real skills throughout the day, which they can put into practise as soon as they return to their  office tasks.

All our tutors are fully qualified with many years of industry experience and limitless patience! We believe that anyone can learn to use all of the Microsoft Office applications efficiently and would be pleased to work with you and your staff to this end.

Microsoft Excel Training Courses in Leeds

We specialise in onsite training and can provide Excel tuition at Foundation, Intermediate & Advanced levels. To establish the most appropriate course level you could use our free Training Needs Analysis service. This comprises a quick and easy tick-box questionnaire which is completed by each employee in MS Word. Email the forms back to us and we will then suggest the most appropriate Excel training course.

Our onsite Excel training provides distinct advantages over public course events:

  • Better value – we can provide Excel training at your offices from £55 just per employee
  • Greater flexibility – courses can be tailored to suit your staffs’ individual needs
  • More time efficient – no wasted time travelling time or associated expenses

  2. 4 – 6 employees: £500
  3. 7 – 10 employees: £550

Microsoft Excel Training Course Levels

Our 1 day onsite Excel courses can be delivered at different levels to suit the needs of your staff:

  • Foundation
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced
  • Visual Basic (VBA)

Our quick and easy TNA form (Training Needs Analysis) will help you to choose the correct level. If you have a number of staff with different levels of experience, we may be able to tailor a course to suit. Please note that this will by necessity mean that we will have to progress at the pace of the learner with the least knowledge. However, it does allow a number of staff to be trained simultaneously, thereby helping to keep the total cost down. If you would like us to send you a free Training Needs Analysis form, please either telephone or request this on our Contact page.
