Humble Beginnings...

Before the new millennium, in 1999, Excel Courses Sydney began under the umbrella of the business called Top Ideas & Solutions (a business specialising in finding solutions to almost any business problem - and does even today).

Gradually it was seen that there was a need for a better understanding of Excel by government agencies, large companies and small businesses.

Staff who were asked by managers to find an economical training solution could not believe that there was actually a company willing to come to their worksite, train using the actual equipment people were using, and in many cases, using the Excel files that were challenging the staff.

That's where Top Ideas & Solutions came in. This training model was an immediate success and has grown a huge following of repeat clients.

Why wouldn't it? For about the price of about 1 or 2 people attending a traditional classroom-based Excel 'lesson', they were able to have a course completely tailored to suit the needs, not only of the business, but the individual training participants. AND no one had to travel anywhere. The people tasked with booking the training were rapt. Their bosses were pleased that their training budget could now stretch FAR more than usual, meaning more people could access training. I am sure a raise would have been the best reward, but praise from their bosses and staff had to suffice.

Compare these prices for 1 person for 1-2 days' training, at a time THEY decide and in a location that needs ALL day parking. Then contact us and you will be pleasantly surprised.

We charge per day NOT per person so other trainers may seem cheaper BUT if you have 2 or more people to train, we are FAR cheaper. Contact us If you are still unsure about who to provide your training, please look at our clients.

Top Ideas & Solutions is still plugging away, solving people's computer needs but Excel Courses Sydney, Excel Training Sydney AND Excel Training Adelaide are now handling all of the Excel training and Excel programming.

In fact Excel Training Adelaide became so successful, it branched out across Australia. Excel Training Sydney and Excel Courses Stdney (this website) was launched in late 2014 and has recruited successful, professional trainers who have similar training styles and knowledge as we all do.
