FREE E-learning Revision

With our latest Microsoft Excel courses, you get free e-learning revision for a full 12 months after your class so you can reinforce the knowledge you have gained.

Access is simple: go to www.activia.co.uk/login/ and log in using your email address.   This will give you free access to our e-learning revision modules.

Note: These have been developed and written exclusively by Activia to maximise effectiveness, by matching the e-learning exactly to what you cover in class.   We hope you have fun, on the day of the course and with honing your knowledge afterwards!

General Information

All Activia excel courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Excel training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for Microsoft Excel courses is 8 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 6 delegates.

Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

Larger Class Sizes for Excel 2007 to 2016

On our Public courses, you will always benefit from our small maximum class sizes of 8 delegates. In fact, the actual class size is often less.

However, if you want training for larger groups at your offices, we can deliver exactly the same content (though with a little less interactivity) for classes of up to 18 delegates, provided they have their own PCs or laptops. You will still have the exercises to download, and the same access to free e-learning revision, after the course.

These "large class" courses are a great choice if you need to get a lot of people trained in a short space of time, and the cost per delegate allows you to get more people upskilled within a limited budget.

[Note: Bespoke options are not available for these courses.]

If you would like to find out more, please get in touch to discuss.
