Frequently Asked Question (FAQ's) On Excel Training

What equipment / facilities do we need for an Onsite Course?

The only requirement is that you have a room big enough to comfortably accommodate the delegates. If you have your own IT training room, that's great. If not, we can even provide laptops, projectors and flip charts. Our standard laptop hire charges may apply.

How do I book Onsite Training?

Charles and Gold Consulting Training has the simplest onsite training booking procedures. You simply contact us ( with your request. We will then reach you to agree on a date, location, course and level with you. Done!

How soon can we arrange Onsite Training?

We do not run a schedule of dates. You dictate the days or time/ period in which you would like to run your onsite training course.

How much does Onsite Training cost?

Your onsite IT training course will be charged at our standard rates, which is £700 or N500, 000 per group up to 10 delegates. If your course is outside Lagos, then travel cost and a hotel cost may apply. We always agree these costs with you prior to the course, so no nasty surprises when you get your invoice! All costs exclude VAT.

Can our Onsite Training be tailored?

Of course! This is what makes us different from other training companies. We even provide a free Training Needs Analysis (TNA) to establish your current and required level of onsite training. All of this at no extra charge!
