 "Michael [UrBizEdge] was instrumental in getting our staff up to speed on basic Excel, as well as more advanced skills that have already started to improve the back end of our programs. He was flexible, accommodating, professional, friendly, and was able to tailor our training to exactly what we needed. We could not have been more happy working with him, and he truly has helped our organization increase our effectiveness and comfort with database work." 
-- Beth M., Program Manager for Kentucky YMCA, USA.

I'm not even sure it's 499 slots that are remaining.

It will run from July to September, 2014. And it will cover all the aspects of Excel other trainers bundle in their Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced curricula. And I will go further to teach Excel VBA in a way so deep and easy to grasp that you will start considering starting your own Excel consulting biz.

All you need to be part of this training is just an internet ready device (desktop PC, laptop, netbook, iPad, or Microsoft Tablet). But I will recommend a laptop or desktop loaded with Excel 2007 or Excel 2010 or Excel 2013.

Every week I will send you training videos and class notes. And every two weeks you will get a class assignment. The best part is that at the end of the training, you will get a certificate endorsed by UrBizEdge Limited with a unique code that can be verified by prospective employers even 10 years from now (and bet you, that certificate will be like OCA & CCNA because in a few years time people will be paying through their nose to get our industry respected certificates).

You can be sure of the high quality and easy to understand content I'm good at. Now that I've got no distracting job and my savings can still take me till November end, I'll be pouring myself into the training. Great class videos, excellent class notes, two-way interactions, creative use of Excel, focus on real-life/business cases and a great boost to your Excel confidence. You will become so good that everyone around you will notice.

And what's in it for me?
This will count towards renewing my MVP award and will also prove to all that not only am I an Excel guru but I can also turn any regular Excel user into an Excel Ninja.

So don't miss this opportunity. Register and tell your friends to register. Tell your family members too. And use this as an opportunity to make peace with your enemies, tell them about this free training offer and they will forever be indebted to you.
