The way NYIM understood our business model was unmatched. They catered a full three-day bootcamp directly to our specific business needs for a class of 30 analysts. All of the new hires were engaged and walked away with a better understanding of the way that we work in the Microsoft Office suite and the way we evaluate our business. I've been to plenty of Excel bootcamps throughout my career and this was by far the best; engaging, bespoke, and immediately applicable!
Kurt attended Excel for Business Bootcamp
We hired NYIM training to provide Microsoft Excel training for UJA staff and it was the best technical training I have seen. Mourad Kattan is an outstanding facilitator and he packed the session with useful information and tips for everyone who was in the room. Also, additional video provided after the session helped to solidify the learning and review everything independently. Looking forward to bringing NYIM to UJA again in the near future!

The overall experience was great. I feel the instructor was well educated on the tools I needed in order to succeed in my current role. I would rate the preparation, use of time, knowledge of material and general kindness as one of the best training classes/sessions that I have ever attended. I have and will continue to recommend the folks at NYIM to others.
K. Burton of Microsoft attended Advanced Excel for Business
I've taken excel workshops before but the Excel for Business Bootcamp is one of my tops! The instructor was patient and knowledgeable. I really like the fact that you take away different resources and that you're able to retake the course for free within 6 months.
Sara A. attended Excel for Business Bootcamp
Exceeded my expectations in all aspects: course was well thought out, materials were presented clearly and engagingly, and Scott made sure at every step that he‘d brought everyone along with him. He was truly excellent, a superb teacher. Needless to say, I‘d gladly take another class with him.
Jonathan M. attended PowerPoint for Business
I have taken two Excel classes at NYIM and they were both fantastic. Garfield is a really skilled teacher and I learned so much! I plan on taking more classes when I can. Highly recommend these classes!
Sandhya B. attended Intermediate Excel for Business
NYIM does incredible work! I did the 3-day Excel Bootcamp & it was amazing! Pooja, Tom & Garfield were incredibly knowledgeable & excellent teachers. They explained everything in an incredibly clear & concise manner. I would HIGHLY recommend NYIM/Career Centers for anyone looking for Excel training, or any other training that they have to offer!
Jonathan S. attended Excel for Business Bootcamp
I enjoyed the Excel Bootcamp I took at NYIM.
First, the trainers were very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the concepts in detail.
Secondly, the course content is very rich. I found it quite voluminous though. But it is great to have printed material for reference.
Thirdly, I loved how interactive classes were with trainers trying as best they could to provide help individually to students.
I greatly recommend NYIM training.
Buri B. attended Excel for Business Bootcamp
I took NYIM Training's Intermediate Excel 2016 training this week, and I was impressed by the content and the trainer, Mike. The in-class exercises were all in one multi-tab spreadsheet which included step-by-step instructions for almost all of these, and you send the spreadsheet with any notes you made to yourself at the end of the day for future reference. No wasted time. Plenty of opportunity for questions. I have had other computer training elsewhere, but NYIM was unique in providing big-picture methods, tips, and shortcuts that were useful even for Excel tasks I already knew well. Plus, coffee and snacks to keep you going!
Rob P. attended Intermediate Excel for Business
Thoroughly enjoyed NYIM's Excel and Access Bootcamp; Garfield and Peter, the intermediate/advanced Excel/ Access instructors, respectively, were truly subject matter gurus!
They both went above and beyond to explain context and purpose behind using Excel/Access - and shared many best practices + free ongoing resources along the way.
Recommend without hesitation NYIM, the Excel/Access courses.
(One logistical insight that may be helpful to anyone reading this - is to take the classes sequentially, on back-to-back days, if possible. Ie. Enrolling in the Excel Courses Tuesday-Thursday, without a day of break. This was quite beneficial to the learning process).
5/5 Stars all around!
Joseph S. attended Microsoft Access Bootcamp
Just finished a refresher course taught by Garfield. He is really great. Patient and clear explanations and gladly went over anything anyone didn't understand. An exceptionally good teacher. I would definitely recommend any course he teaches.
Stacey B. attended Microsoft Outlook Level I
I took a Microsoft Access class with Garfield. He was a great teacher and I learned an incredible amount in just 2 days.

Adam F. attended Microsoft Access Bootcamp
Yesterday I took an all day PowerPoint class with Scott. He is a fabulous trainer. I now have an excellent understanding of PP. A booklet is given to each student that reviews all the lessons from the class. This is a tremendous help when you return to your own computer and start to work in this program. Thank you Scott and NYIM Training.

Cool, huh?
Dana D. attended Excel for Business Fundamentals
Mike Green was an absolutely wonderful teacher who is obviously an expert in both Microsoft word and excel. He was able to explain difficult concepts in an understandable manner and gave me a real confidence boost in only a day's worth of teaching instruction. I recommend Mr. Green to any pupil who wants to learn either complicated or simple Microsoft concepts quickly and in a relaxed atmosphere.
Mark M. attended Microsoft Word Level I

I thoroughly enjoyed my training experience (Excel Bootcamp for Business- Fundamentals, Intermediate, Advanced). The instructors were very informative, thorough and engaging and the tools were invaluable to my day-to-day work in accounting. Would highly recommend this training.
I had a fantastic experience in NYIM's Intermediate Excel class. Staff was very helpful in guiding me on which course to take based on my current skill set. Scheduling was easy as there were multiple days, times, and formats offered. I took the course over two weekday nights with Garfield. The facilities are clean and modern and offer complimentary water, coffee, and snacks. Garfield was an expert and made learning excel fun (which is not easy to do). I am able to apply what I learned directly to my work. At the end of the course, they offer a handout, online courses, and a copy of the workbook from the training which makes it an incredible value. Would highly recommend NYIM for any excel training, and will definitely be booking advanced excel courses with them in the near future.

Great Excel class! I'm a pretty seasoned Excel user, so there were parts that were definitely review, but I still learned a whole lot.

The course materials were great, too, and there was sufficient time built in for completing exercises. I highly recommend.

Should I use Microsoft Office or Office 365?
Whether you plan to use Microsoft Office or Office 365, NYIM's Microsoft Office training programs provide you with the skills to use Microsoft Office or Office 365. While enrolled as an NYIM student, you'll have access to our computer lab with the latest versions of every Microsoft Office program available. However, after you complete your training, you may be wondering if you should purchase Microsoft Office or Office 365. Purchase a Microsoft Office license if you are using any of the Microsoft Office programs at the advanced level. If you are only going to use the most basic features of the program and the program is available online, Office 365 is a better choice.
What are the differences between Microsoft Office and Office 365?
Microsoft Office is a licensed product that is purchased as a single program. Individuals and business can purchase a single license for one users or multiple licenses for employees in their office. As a physical product, the user can download program updates but is not entitled to free upgrades for newer versions. For example, if you purchase a Microsoft Office 16 product, you can download Microsoft 2016 updates from the Microsoft Office website for free, but you are not eligible to download a free upgrade to Microsoft Office 2019. Instead, you can purchase an upgrade. In contrast, if you download Microsoft Office 365, you will always have the latest version of the program available. If you purchase an Office 365 subscription for Microsoft Office 2016, the program would automatically update to Microsoft 2019 when it's available.
Despite getting the newest version, there are limits to Office 365. Certain Microsoft Office programs are not available as internet-based applications or mobile apps; these applications include Microsoft Access, Microsoft Publisher, and OneNote among others. In addition, the most popular Microsoft Office programs including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint have limited functionality on the web. In order to harness the full power of the program and have accessed to all of the features, you'll have to purchase a Microsoft Office license.
Office 365 Training
At NYIM, you will have the benefit of learning the latest Microsoft Office version of the program, which includes all of the features of each program. In addition, you won't have to download the purchase the program or bring your own computer. All of our Microsoft Office classes are held in our computer lab, which includes modern computers with the latest version of Microsoft Office. Learning the Microsoft Office version of the program will also prepare you to use Office 365.
Whether you choose, Microsoft Office or Office 365, you will learn all the essential features of each program at NYIM.
