"Suresh, I spoke with the (onsite training) group this morning and they had nothing but great things to say (about the LOOKUP Functions and PivotTable course)! They said the information was excellent and you were an engaging, humorous facilitator. They recommended you if we need some training in the future. Thank you so much for coming out to Chilliwack."

"I highly recommend Rapid Computer Training. I took part in a PowerPoint session recently and Suresh is a very skilled trainer. His knowledge on the matter, ability to both read and pace the class along with a fantastic sense of humour kept me engaged for the full day. I would choose Rapid Computer Training over others in the future simply based on my experience with Suresh and his teaching style."

"I am a confident user of Excel and still learned a lot from these classes. Suresh is a fantastic instructor who applied real life examples with the course practices. I would recommend this program to anyone who is wanting to develop on their existing Excel knowledge. The information I learned has saved me a lot of time."

"I would highly recommend Excel for the HR Professionals course to any Human Resources or Administrative professional. I had some reservations about one day courses before, but this course proved me wrong. It addresses all the issues every HR professional faces on a daily basis, every minute you will learn something very useful. You will also receive an Excel file that you can later on refer to. The instructor is very knowledgeable and willing to go an extra mile to help the learner understand all the steps of the process. I wish I had taken this course earlier, it would have saved me so much time!"

"I found the information in these (Excel for HR) courses to be extremely useful. The course materials and files, which are personalized by ourselves as we go, are going to be a great resource to me. When we don’t use new skills they are most often lost, and finding the applicable instructions in paper handouts can be trying. These 2 electronic files are ready at my “fingertips” so to speak, on my desktop. Suresh managed to compact many HR specific examples and exercises into a mere 2 days training which went by very quickly. I highly recommend this company and instructor, and am recommending to our management that the other HR Admins in our company should definitely take these courses. Thank you again for an exciting, fast paced 2 days of very interesting and job specific training!"

"Thank you, Suresh. I found the (Excel for HR) course to be excellent, and very good value for the time and money spent. I really appreciated your teaching style, and your sense of humour; the pace was perfect for me. The functions / tools that you selected to include in the course were all things that I will make use of back on the job, and the excerises you set up extremely relevant. Overall, I am extremely satisfied and will share that with colleagues.

"Thank you, Suresh! I was able to open the workbooks successfully. Both Kiki (HR Generalist) and I thought the training was excellent and will be applying our new knowledge to improve some of our existing tools and create some excellent new ones. The course design was very thoughtful, and I appreciated the many examples you gave for applying the Excel functions we covered to HR tools. I also appreciated that you provided our own workbooks with instructions as a takeaway, and your great sense of humour. The course was very engaging – time just flew! Thanks very much! I also plan to share my comments with BCHRMA."

"Thanks Suresh. I so enjoyed the Excel for HR course yesterday. I learned many tips and tricks that I know I will use in the future. The pace of the course was just right. While I did know some of the content, it was a great refresher. You were very patient with all of us and made the class fun. By the way, I can’t open the file you sent called Dorothy.xlw. I think you may have mentioned this as it was a file saved on the lap top? Thanks again."

“I have immediately been able to apply the concepts and techniques I learned from the PivotTables and HR Data Management course. Not only am I saving a huge amount of time when manipulating large datasets, but I am more confident in the accuracy of the outputs. I can drill down to the subtleties so much more efficiently and easily.”

"Hi Suresh, thank you for the files and for the training yesterday. I really enjoyed the Excel for HR course. You went at a pace that was easy to follow and you kept me engaged by putting it in context. I really appreciated that. I look forward to seeing what the next level of excel training looks like for HR Professionals."
"I attended the Excel for the HR Professionals course in Victoria. I just want to say that Suresh is an awesome instructor. I have taken a couple of excel courses in the past from other companies, but Suresh, by far, was the best instructor. He added humour and great analogies to the training. He made it seem so easy. I would recommend this course to others. He kept me engaged the whole day. Well done Suresh, not only are you an expert in Excel, you are an expert in training others. Thank you so much for the great day, the training and the humour."

"Hi Suresh, I really like how you teach in layman terms, not so technical that no one understands. I had worked (self-taught) with quite a few of the equations, but struggled, the Excel for HR course helped me understand them and I feel confident using them now, plus I like the little short cuts you taught us about naming the cells, F4 etc., they will be huge time savers. I look forward to the next section of the HR. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable course."

"Hi Suresh, I would like to thank you for your all efforts on putting on the Excel training course. All the comments I received were positive ones, as everyone attending enjoyed the presentation and level of training that they could follow. The attendees all came back with a lot more knowledge on the Excel program than they did going in and were quite excited with some of the short cuts they learned.
Once again Thank You for a job well done, Regards,

I enjoyed both the Word and Excel courses that you taught and I will definitely be taking more courses in 2011. The hands-on approach and pace is very conducive to learning. You are a skilled and knowledgeable instructor. The Excel 2007 course was particularly helpful to understand the changes from Excel 2003 plus I also learned some new tips and tricks, which are always welcome."
Deborah Soo Lum, CGA
"Suresh, we would like to thank you for the Excel course that you presented to our entire office on September 2, 2010. Everybody was very enthusiastic about the excel features that they learned about. As a business owner, I greatly appreciated that you were able to bring the computer lab to us, making a truly focused course just for our office. We were able to spend more time where we needed and you even showed us some extra features that were specifically useful to us."

I am now easily doing PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets and Word documents and am
looking forward to taking Level 2 courses.

"The one day Excel Level 3 course I took with Suresh was one of the most in-depth courses I have ever attended. After completing this course I felt that I had mastered the skills that were taught and was able to put what I've learnt to use immediately.
Suresh has much expertise in his field and his sense of humour made the course very enjoyable. I would recommend this hands-on course to anyone who would want to master their Excel skills in a short period of time."

"We enjoyed having you here (for on-site training) and the convenience it allowed us to remain in our office rather than our group traveling into Vancouver. Every one of us enjoyed the training and each took away extra skills to use in our daily tasks and duties. We had a varied group and appreciate your willingness to modify your training to suit all needs. You trained with knowledge, patience and humour making the day very enjoyable.
Thank you again Suresh. Very much appreciated."
Pharmasave Drugs (Pacific) Ltd.
“Our company produces many lengthy, complicated service documents and manuals which require ongoing maintenance and updating. To ensure our staff were maximizing the use of available tools, we enrolled in a Microsoft Word Level 2 and Level 3 course, as well as an Excel course with Suresh Kumar.
Suresh made himself available at our offices for each of the three courses we participated in through Rapid Computer Training and all participants thoroughly enjoyed his enthusiastic and refreshing tutoring style. Despite varying levels of expertise among the participants, Suresh managed to impart new and exciting skills to each of us and we would not hesitate in recommending him as a devoted, highly skilled and very knowledgeable computer trainer.”
PacNet Services Ltd.
I had the pleasure of taking five Microsoft Office courses with Suresh. Each one of them was amazingly simple to navigate as Suresh was able to deliver immediate tools necessary for my workplace. He presented material that made sense and valuable to my job at hand when using Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel. With his continuous tabs to ensure that I was grasping the material and providing business day-to-day examples and situations, he made the courses easy to learn and to enable me to apply these skills right away.
You take much pride in your work and your teaching style is creditable and effective. Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge with me.

"Thank you for this, Suresh. The (Access 2007) class was thoroughly enjoyable and informative – both for me and for my staff in May! The teaching was applicable generally to other MS software and I appreciated that. We may well come back to you with some questions or potential contract work as we delve into our new databases, if that is something you take on. Best wishes."

"Hello Suresh, I attended your Excel Level 1 beginner's course on July 6th. The course was excellent. We were lead through Excel step-by-step in an easy-to-follow, comprehensive manner. The day was informative, the instructor's explanations were clear, and the materials were first-rate. I will be applying what I've learnt on the job right away...training doesn't get much more practical than that. Keep up the good work. In 6 months I might be ready for level 2! Sincerely,

"Our group enjoyed the day of excel training - especially since you were able to tailor the training specifically to our group. I know many of the participants have already implemented some of the tools/tricks you provided us on our own internal data reports (esp. sorting & filters / sub totals / formatting cells). I appreciate your offer to answer our excel questions as well! Many thanks again for all your help Suresh! Warm regards, Abby and AGF team!

"This was the best computer course I have ever taken!! I really appreciated Suresh's ability to explain even basic computer functions in a way that made sense for both new and experienced users. He has many practical suggestions that will save considerable time and frustration! The best part is that Suresh has a great sense of humour which made the learning all the more enjoyable - a jam packed day but extremely worthwhile!"
