The course is a win-win situation for all. Along with being comprehensive, it explains and breaks down everything in a very simple manner. Though, I do believe, some more content could be incorporated into the same, to make it feel like a Level 2 Course.
Andy Coleman
I work in Asset Based Lending where short-term financing needs are key. I used this template and changed it to a 13-week cash flow spreadsheet. I have been able to modify credits using the quantitative data this spreadsheet provides.

I am grateful to Tim for explaining to me such a complex concept in an extremely lucid manner. I can summarize what I had learned in this course in these words: What I had learned in this course would have taken me months on my own. It is very well guided, well crafted and well explained.

Dear Tim, I never leave any feedback. But in this case I have found your course just awesome! A long time I have struggled to find a course on the internet with the combination of high professional Financial & Excel modelling skills. Yours is a profound hallmark, and due to your practical background in finance, your model is in all aspects very highly rating. Not only the model, but the training organization itself is great - structure, logic is easy to follow, clear explanation. I believe it is worth much more than I paid for it and I feel myself very lucky that I have taken your amazing courses.
