P. Anuels, Praclox - Word VBA

"C. Broeders - 'This is a good training to brush up or expand your knowledge of MS Word (2013 or any other version). Most subjects are known, but you learn a lot from the lessons and exercises and that can save time when working with Word in practice. - Rating: 7.6"

"I am/was used to following a course or training in groups. The textbook is clear and well-organised. Moreover, you get the CD-ROM to take home so that you can practise even more if necessary. You determine the pace yourself and which parts you want to give extra attention and practice. Despite the fact that I always learn a lot from others when subjects are discussed in class, I have found this method to be very useful." - Rating: 7.4

"The training Word Basis is a training for everyone who in any way is working with Word or is going to start. The training gives you a good feeling that after 2 days you know Word. Not everything of course, that comes in a follow-up training. But for everyone who has to be able to write a letter, this is a recommendation!" - Rating: 7.9

Clemens van Tilborg, Cofely Talent BV - Word 2003 Basic

M. van den Hof, ROOBOL Foundation - Word Continued

"The training Word tips and tricks makes you aware of what is possible in the practical field, to add neatness and creativity in your documents. Knowing what the possibilities are is a 1st step. Remembering everything is more difficult. But you can look it up, and if all goes well, we will get an overview of the parts that have been dealt with. So that, step by step, you can learn what applies to you, use it and let it sink in. The trainer was top!" - Rating: 8.2

"That so much can be done with Word. Really a broadening of work. Only an account of the working method would be ideal. You often quickly forget the positions what you need to use to do something." - Rating: 7.9

Gea Hoekstra, Safety Region Fryslân - Word Base

"I followed the training "Word 2010 Continuation". In addition to the basic knowledge I already had of Word, this is a valuable addition to my daily work at the secretariat. Years ago, I was still trained with the Office 2003 package and Office 2010 does show many differences from the 2003 version, so it often takes more time to find out where they have hidden that one button or function. I will certainly be applying many things in practice and have learned many new things (also things I thought I already knew well!)." - Rating: 8.0

T. Doorn, Woongroep Holland - Word 2003 Continued

"For years I have disliked the word processing programme "Microsoft Word". I was already sick when I had to write a letter in that "Word" with pictures, tables etc. I would rather write a letter in Excel, because I could handle that better. Now that fear has gone, it was just a lack of knowledge. I had never really looked into this programme. I already started with a wrong work order when setting up a document and that resulted in frustration with all its consequences." - Rating: 10.0
