Advanced Excel Training

Advanced Excel Training


Excel has powerful tools that enable busy users to set up systems that simplify data analysis and interpretation. Effectively using Excel allows users to devote their time more profitably to making decisions about and acting on results, with more effective outcomes. Participants actively learn through a series of practical simulations which ensures that they maximize their learning and can use the tools immediately when they return to the office. In addition to the practical component, all participants also receive a manual describing all the techniques learned.


This Microsoft Excel training is ideal for people wanting to use more complex functions within Excel, including tools for analyzing, linking and exporting data. Participants will need to have attended or be familiar with the basics of Microsoft Excel.
