“During the year F1 Computer Services have helped provide training to our Group for MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Macros. Everyone who has attended these courses have said how great Debbie is at teaching but also keeping attendees engaged.

At the end of last week, I called Chris from F1 in dire need of an excel expert to help rebuild our Group Appraisal forms for the Appraisals that will be taking place over the next month. Chris, without hesitation confirmed the date and time she could send someone to me and I cannot thank her enough. Chris and F1 Computer Services provide a polite, efficient and painless service, which is just what we as a Group appreciate.

Alex who came in to help rebuild our Appraisal form, was brilliant. He understood what we were trying to achieve and helped me with the thought process behind it. He has left the form in a position where I can make changes without having to alter the document set up.

I highly recommend using F1 Computer Services.”

Nadia Ashley,
Group Training & Development Manager

“To date, we have used F1 Computer Services to deliver training for MS Excel Intermediate, MS Excel Advanced, MS Excel VBA, MS Visio, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Acrobat Pro. The classroom training has always been excellent and delivered to a high professional standard. Several of these courses have now been run with us over the past few years and we consistently receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from the attendees.

They have always been open to tailoring courses to suit our demand and accommodate any customer training requests, as well as being very pro-active in their response to questions and enquiries. The trainers are very experienced and knowledgably and are easily able to accommodate individual requests to be shown something outside the standard course programme, or give additional background/context when delivering a course.

F1 Services have proven themselves to be flexible and supportive of our organisational needs, and professional in all aspects of our relationship.

I can’t recommend them enough if you are looking to develop employees or even just refresh their existing skills; they are a first class training provider.”


“CooperVision have employed Chris Ross from F1 Computer Services for various in-house training courses, on numerous occasions, over the past five years. We have always found her to offer a thorough and professional service, and well equipped to train both basic beginners and advanced courses.

Feedback from attendees of Chris’s courses is always positive. We would highly recommend Chris Ross to companies requiring computer training.”

Neil Goodenough

We will definitely use them again for future training needs.”

“The trainers are knowledgeable and friendly; allowing for a comfortable learning experience.

It has always been a pleasure to work with Chris and the team as they have taken the time to understand our culture and the individual training needs of our staff. Keep up the good work!”

“F1 are an excellent training company to work with. The organisation and planning of the training was thorough and was matched to our training needs. Most importantly the onsite adobe trainers that were provided were very knowledgeable with a relaxed and very supportive training style. Five stars.”

Mr RW Allen, Assistant Head
King Edward VI School


“MSP Intermediate course. I requested this training as I have historically used CSP and needed to start using MSP urgently due to Client requirements. The course was very well presented and thorough and has hit its brief.”

Paul Allan,

“For the past 14 years F1 Computer Services has proved to be our ideal partner for all aspects of IT support and training. We have consistently benefited from their committed and flexible approach to our needs and changing circumstances as a company. All their services represent excellent value for money.

Training programmes are always customised to our needs and for the individuals attending. Our people feel not just competent but confident to apply their learning after a session with Chris Ross. This is achieved because Chris takes the time to understand specific objectives and makes the training real for people.”

Juliette Dennett
Managing Director, Dale Carnegie Training

“We undertook Office 2003 to 2007 migration for most of our users and it became evident our staff would benefit from further basic, intermediate and advance instruction on Excel and MS Word. When set the challenge of arranging a programme it was a daunting prospect. So many users with varying capabilities and different aspirations.

Chris Ross soon came to our rescue providing a staff capability assessment for each user. All we had to do was identify the target levels we required each user to achieve and Chris structured a programme to suit. Chris has delivered a first-class programme in a confident and professional way and I have had nothing put positive feed-back from all those that attended the sessions.

Its the first time I have arranged such an event and people have requested more, cheers!”

Rob Coley
Engineering Director, Aish Technologies

“Penny & Giles have had a long relationship with F1 Computer Services and over a number of years they have assisted us with a range of applications. They provide a flexible approach covering the simplest questions to addressing more complex scenarios.

With great personalised training from Chris Ross, our individuals and teams have benefited enormously from her depth of knowledge and the ease with which this is delivered. Chris takes the time to understand the user’s particular need and then ensures that the training provides solutions to give that extra added value.”

Lloyd Stammas
Supply Chain Manager, Penny & Giles

“F1 Computer Services have delivered training to our company for over 10 years. Courses are tailored to our needs, and delivered in very straightforward language by someone who understands how the tools need to be used in practical business applications, and whose product knowledge is far in excess of the required level, allowing our teams to become confident and efficient.

We have also had assistance in developing templates and forms which are dedicated to our business requirements and which save us time and ensure high levels of accuracy. The flexibility and calm attention to detail ensures that we refer all our training needs to F1 as teams develop.”

Rodney McMahon
Managing Director, Morgan Furniture

“We have used F1 for many years for our Microsoft training, and continue to do so as it’s top quality and good value. Always a pleasure working with Chris.”

Alan Webb
Iracroft Ltd

“A few words Chris – and I can’t say often enough how chuffed I am with the training exercise, I know it’s been hard going putting it all together, but then with 99.9% take up, it was never going to be easy!

It is not often that training is greeted so warmly and eagerly, but the Excel training Chris delivered has been given a 100% positive feedback from all staff members. Clear, concise, pertinent and delivered with great good humour. The training was commissioned in response to staff needing to find more time in their days. In each session staff were immediately able to see an application to their own daily tasks and how it would help them achieve more in less time – isn’t that what we’re all looking for?

I would heartily recommend F1 Excel Training. We are already in discussions about further training for PowerPoint, and I have people putting their names down not wanting to miss the opportunity. Many thanks Chris!”

Imogen Clarke,

“We have used F1 Computer Services for several years, predominantly for Excel and Microsoft Project training. The booking process is easy and the course content has been adapted to suit our requirements. The trainers have proved to be very knowledgeable and friendly and I have received positive feedback from all that have attended training courses.

Keep up the good work Chris!”

Ken Brett, Maintenance and Projects
Nalco Manufacturing Ltd


“I first started working with F1 Computers a few years ago when working for a previous employer who sent us on a course with Chris initially for a beginner’s course in Excel. As I had not worked much with Excel since school I found this course so helpful to remind me of a lot of basics I had forgotten, but also very helpful on teaching me shortcuts and processes I had never learned. The courses structure was well thought out, easy to follow, and the atmosphere was friendly. I felt I could ask as many questions as I wanted without feeling like they were stupid questions. Working within a Finance department these skills I developed were so important within my role and sped me up when navigating through Excel. I went on to complete both the intermediate course and the advanced course in excel which helped me massively progress my role, advance processes for the company and teach me skills which have helped me in my role ever since. My confidence in Excel advances quickly with the skills and the knowledge F1 Computers, Chris and her team have.

As I am now a manager I found my direct reports were asking me a lot of questions when it came to Excel so when I thought about putting them on a course Chris was my first point of contact as I remembered how much I valued the courses in the previous years. Now being more aware of the cost of courses I found that F1 Computers was great value for money. Every member of the team who attended the courses (we ran a beginner, intermediate and advanced for the team with F1 Computers) came away having really enjoyed the course and we worked straight away to put the skills developed to work in everyday processes with the company. I have not had 1 negative bit of feedback and had requests to progress onto more courses with F1 Computers. One of my team members was lucky enough to have a 1:1 with Chris and she came away so pleased with the day and excited to put the skills to the test, also commenting on how friendly and helpful Chris was.

Having worked with Chris for a number of years I couldn’t give her a higher recommendation. She would remain my first point of call for anyone looking to advance their Excel skills, and although I have not had experience with other courses through F1 Computers I am confident that the team at F1 would provide quality and value for money in all the courses they provide.”

Sian Hollinshead, Management Accountant


“We have been working with Chris Ross of F1 Computer Services for over a year now and during that time we have found Chris to be both extremely professional and amenable to our requests (given the amount of time we change the dates!) Each time the course delivers what we expect and more importantly what we have been sold. I have known Debbie for a number of years but more recently as a trainer, and both Debbie and Tony are the most patient of trainers; tolerant, knowledgeable and not adverse to having a laugh which makes the whole learning process engaging and fun. We always get back excellent happy sheets post training, and you can’t ask for more than that”

Sarah Moore, HR Manager
Pennyfarthing Homes

“Course was excellent. Really happy to learn lots of time saving functions for processes I have sort of have in place but in a much more labour intensive way, so these will make life much easier. Learned lots of new functions which will be extremely useful in my day to day job and will definitely make a difference to my role and productivity. Thank you, really excited to get back to the office to start using my new skills.”

Kerry Newton,
Canford Healthcare Ltd

“F1 Computer Services has trained our staff for many years. Always an excellent introduction or more advanced course for excel which is well presented and explained. Questions are encouraged during sessions, which always make staff members feel more comfortable. Very professional service and always happy to help.”
