"The Excel courses covered a lot of information, delivered in concise chunks that were easy to absorb. The structure was clear, logical and effective. Kerri has obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into designing it. It wasn’t just about the new knowledge though. Other benefits came from doing activities and interacting with Kerri and other participants.
Kerri has a calm and logical method of teaching that resonated well with her audience. I can’t speak highly enough of Kerri. The knowledge and expertise she shares in her Excel courses are second to none."
"We have utilised the services of A1 Computer Training for many years to our great delight. Kerri’s knowledge, skills and dedication to help us simplify and improve our complex environmental reporting procedures is unsurpassed. Kerri has developed an Access Database with supporting Excel modelling that has made our reporting more auditable, robust, consistent and accurate. The associated time savings have also been phenomenal.
Not sure there would be many who could do what Kerri has managed to do with such complex calculations and large volumes of data and data sources. Nothing was too hard and Kerri has always been friendly and professional.
Well done A1 Computer Training! Well done Kerri!"
"Kerri Hackett has run Advanced Microsoft modules for the Department of Education and Training (Victoria) on a number of occasions. Her excellent communication skills results in highly productive training sessions and her thorough knowledge means she can easily cater for ad hoc questions and follow up queries from staff. I am always very impressed with the service which Kerri provides."
"Nexia Sydney have been working with Kerri for a number of years where she has provided group Excel, Word and PowerPoint training to staff across all levels. Kerri is extremely skilled at delivering content to ensure all participants understand the content matter and are able to transfer the skills learnt into their day to day work.
We consistently receive feedback from staff stating Kerri “is an excellent trainer”, with “high quality knowledge”. We cannot speak more highly of Kerri and would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone wanting to improve their Microsoft Office knowledge."
"We have engaged Kerri for many years now because she is an excellent trainer and so easy to work with. Kerri runs large onsite group Excel courses for us and the consistent feedback from staff is overwhelmingly positive. She is extremely knowledgeable and happy to customise her courses. I hope she never retires from training!"
"We have been dealing with A1 Computer Training since 2009 when we introduced training of Microsoft Excel and Outlook. Kerri’s training increased the skills of all employees using these programs which helped increase productivity and generally made computer life easier. Based on the relationship we had built with Kerri we continued on using her services with adjustments to our Access database. We recently consulted with Kerri to improve the design of the database and are making significant changes to make our system more user friendly and reduce possible errors.
We find Kerri approachable and easy to deal with. She has a skill of translating computer jargon to everyday English which speeds up the learning process considerably. I have no hesitation in recommending Kerri to any business."
"I have worked with Kerri extensively over a number of years. Kerri was the lead consultant on a database project that is now responsible for managing over $500M in capital works, including budgeting and forecasting functions and tracking supply chain data. Her technical and commercial insights were invaluable to the project. Further, her collaborative and practical approach to design and development were critical to the project’s successful implementation. I highly recommend Kerri."
"For the past 8 years we have used Kerri at A1 Computer training to run our in-house Excel training courses for our staff. We find Kerri to be an extremely knowledgeable trainer in all levels of Excel and interacts well with our staff."
"I invited Kerri Hackett to conduct in-house training courses in Word, Excel and Access for our staff. At that time I asked her to update some databases that my company was using and to give me a basic understanding of Access so that I could perform minor alterations. All of the staff who attended her courses as well as myself, found her down to earth and very practical method of teaching extremely useful and interesting. Since then I asked Kerri for her help several times in helping me to develop a new database for a new project. I gave her a raw database with an outline of what it would be used for and what the data represented. Kerri grasped the requirements very quickly and it wasn't long before I had a trial database to test. I had to contact her several times to refine the database before it went live and she was always only a phone call or email away.
I always found Kerri to be very approachable and quick to grasp what my requirements were, even when sometimes I was unsure what they actually were. I recommend Kerri very highly to any individual or company wishing to utilise her many skills and talents in training and design."
"We engaged A1 Computer Training to assist our accountancy firm with numerous Microsoft Office related training tasks, including custom building an Access database to specifically meet our changing needs. The company's expertise in a variety of Office applications has been of great value to us."
