Students may withdraw from any course (except when they have late-rescheduled) after instruction has started within 2 hours and receive a full refund, provided the reason for their withdrawal is dissatisfaction with the course.

This class was excellent. Maria Pribyl as an instructor did an amazing job. I was fortunate enough to be her only student in my session, which was great because I had all of her focus and attention on me and helping me understand everything I needed to know about the basics of Excel. Everything flowed very well and she made everything crystal clear and easy to understand. The only improvement I would make is that the next class should have many more students than just myself! I got lucky to have a nice 1 on 1 session, but Maria has skills that everyone who works with excel should know! If you work with Excel in your work environment or you just want to become more educated on this program among many others, sign up and attend!

This was an excellent course! I wish I had taken this course years ago! Rebekah 3Witt was EXCELLENT! She must have been a kindergarten teacher at some point in her career, as she has tremendous patience and understanding with her students. She takes the time to explain and re-explain to make certain the class understands - BRAVO Rebekah!!! I will be back for the Intermediate Excel and PPT courses. Thank You!
