I was a complete novice when I did the bootcamp and had never so much as looked at Illustrator and the other packages. I have created flyers that have been used for presentations and trade shows. I think the key to the bootcamp was it gave me the confidence to open the package and try and then the skills to develop what I could achieve. I am constantly learning new things and still refer to my notes from the training, it was invaluable.
The boot camp has given me the confidence to put myself out there and try something new which has been the best thing I have done. It has equipped me with enough knowledge to get a foot in the door and show my potential to myself and my employer. When I first started I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew but the support from square one was so good they encouraged me to keep going and did everything they could to ensure my success. The Excel course I took have been a massive investment and helped me in what at first seemed quite overwhelming, it gave me the confidence to know I could do it and take those skills into the work place. Square one send out regular handy tips and hints for excel which I often look at and have taken some for myself in the workplace.
