Microsoft Excel

May 14-17, 2019


Microsoft Excel is one of today’s most powerful and versatile business tools, but if you’re not familiar with its basic functions, formulas, commands and keystrokes, it can be frustrating and disappointing. In today’s fast-paced, technical business environment, numbers are everything. Much of our success hinges on how well we can manage the data – statistics, planning, reporting – that we encounter on a daily basis. We learn how we are doing and discover our next course of action by studying numbers. Ms Excel is an incredibly powerful tool for doing this.

Having proven skills in this software will demonstrate to your colleagues and employers that you have had practical, hands-on experience that give you full confidence in your ability to navigate your way around the software with ease. This training gives you strong fundamentals to build on, intermediate and the advance excel. With the Basic Excel training you’ll learn how to use charts, graphs, fonts, borders, shading and more — and produce spreadsheets that communicate better and really get attention. You’ll discover professional Excel tips for brilliant, distinctive output every time, on every worksheet.  In the Advanced Excel session you will learn how to design and debug a macro and how to create and manage a PivotChart and even linking and data exchange operations you once dreaded will become easier.  We aim to make integration from older excel packages more understandable for users of previous Microsoft Excel.  We are offering the course in two levels – Basic level to provide training on the fundamentals on how Ms Excel works and the Intermediate to advanced level training to focus more in depth features of the package to increase productivity and save time.
