Bob Umlas Microsoft Excel MVP

Microsoft Excel Training: To provide the best Microsoft Excel training we paired her up with one of the world’s top Microsoft Excel MVPs, Bob Umlas, based out of New York. Bob led eight hours of one-on-one, virtual training with the client to ensure she was not only comfortable with the basics of Excel but that she also felt confident exploring the more complex features Excel has to offer.

The training was also recorded and the client received a complimentary copy of the recording session for future reference.




Microsoft Access Training: On the Microsoft Access portion of the training we set the client up with four hours of one-on-one training with our lead Access programmer and trainer, Ian, based out of London England. Ian ran a series of four trainings covering all of the client’s needs regarding how to properly navigate and take advantage of Microsoft Access.






After 12 one-on-one training sessions with some of the brightest minds in the industry the client was able to learn everything that we scheduled for and then some. Our team was able to dive into additional topics regarding the tools and answer any questions that arose.


“I enjoyed the trainings and learnt a lot, as a beginner of Access (with no previous background) It will be better to enroll for more hours but will see if its feasible for my organization to cover more or maybe in the future will take additional sessions. As for Excel, I am more advanced now, but as a finance person who uses Excel every day, learning excel will never be stopped.”
