Instructor Biography

Andries Crina, Excel Master Trainer and Project Manager at Coface

I am Excel Instructor, Project manager at Coface and General Manager of the Lucrasium Learn Company

My education includes a bachelor degree at the Academy of Economic Studies – Faculty of Finance, Insurance, Banking and Stock Exchange and a Master at the University of Political, Science and Public Administration and I am a project leader at Coface (multinational company, present in over 98 countries) and the owner of the Lucrasium Learn Company.

I always had an attraction for numbers and logical thinking and from the age of 10 I was sure that finance is my life. If you ask a friend of mine what my nickname is, the answer will be “Count”. With an experience of more than 12 years in working with Excel, I can say that is a passion of mine. During this period I learned all the secrets of probably the most used program in the business sector. Due to the high volume of work, I looked for the most efficient solutions and managed to provide courses for students and working class people. I helped and trained numerous individuals that managed to increase their working productivity. As a comparison, if a person had to provide a report that was being done in a half a day, after learning the course from me, the job was ready in just a half an hour. I also provided over 52 courses in Excel, Access, Word, Powerpoint, Business Administration, Finance, Efficient Working, Time Management and Personal Development.
