On-site training, delivered by an experienced, expert trainer, can be one of the most rewarding and effective ways to learn new software skills. The training can be customised to meet your exact learning requirements – your files and sample documents are close to hand and can be built into the training from the outset. And for small groups on-site can be highly cost-effective.
