What do our clients say?
Enjoyed the two day course as had never done anything with payroll and the tutor was very informative.
A good two days and time well spent as I knew nothing about payroll before this, but due to good training I feel I have at least a basis knowledge now.
The course was excellent and the content was very relevant and was delivered very well by Kieran Clifford who was very patient and well prepared.
I found this two day course very helpful and interesting and I will get a lot of use from this course in the future. It was explained very clearly and the tutor gave time for any questions and explained again very clearly.
The payroll manual and computerised was both informative and well presented. The tutor was extremely helpful and patient and the course was very relevant
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and expect it to be of great benefit to me in my future payroll endeavours.
The course was very informative and a great way of understanding how easy computerised payroll can be. For this short two day course I would encourage others to to complete including employers.
Very informative course, I have a much better understanding of Tax, USC and payroll. I would defenetely recommend doing this course to others in Administration. It also helped that the tutor was extremely nice, friendly and helpful.
Very useful course, great tutor and very informative, it will benefit me in work and help with jobs in the future
I found the course very beneficial to use and useful. Class tutor was excellent
I found the course very informative, I thought the manual day very helpful and made me think about why we input figures and if there is a problem with a payslip. I now understand where I should start to look in resolving the issue. The system is only as good as the user and it was great to be reminded of that.
Very well informed course with a lot of very helpful and useful information. At times a little information overload.
There was a lot to take in and truthfully you can feel a little head cooked by the end. Overall though it is entirely worth it. A chance to understand the deeper features of the software and to understand what the numbers all mean.
I enjoyed the programme immensely. Even though I run payroll it gave me a thourough understanding and practical insight that will greatly enhance my abilities
The course was fantastically laid out. Marie made it easy to follow and understand. Payroll has now become a much easier task as a result. I was interested at all times and the use of examples and having to use the skills we had learned in the practice wa helpful and detrimental in helping the information stick
