Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where are your classes held?

Q: What type of computers do you provide?

A: We teach exclusively on Windows based computers.

Q: What time are classes?

A: Our VBA course runs every month, one session weekdays and another session weekends. The weekday sessions run from 9am-5pm and on Saturday or Sunday classes run from 10am-5:30pm. Every other month classes are held weeknights from 6-9pm.

Q: Will I be proficient at VBA programming after 21 hours of training?

A: The amount of time it will take you to become proficient varies for each person. I find that writing code is analogous to poetry in that few of us can inherently write a good poem the first try, but with practice you’ll improve. In general I would suggest you allow between 50-100 hours to write code for one or more projects to become comfortable coding VBA. Although there is no Microsoft VBA certification, if there were I believe that you would be able to pass an exam.

Q: What type of practice examples do you provide?

A: Every lesson has several practice files and there is extensive homework of reading my notes, reviewing class videos, reviewing pertinent Microsoft website material, and solving VBA coding problems. Students should allocate a minimum of 90 minutes a week to homework between classes, though the homework assignments can take up to 12 hours to complete.
