I took a private Excel class at NYIM, and it was excellent. The trainer, Mourad, prepared a very good class outline that taught me many useful tools. During our time together, Mourad was patient and changed the direction as he determined what my greatest needs were. I will be taking more classes with NYIM and highly recommend them.
