This Excel Level 2 training course aims to build on the knowledge gained using Excel (self-taught users) or users who have completed the Excel Level 1: The Fundamentals course.

Excel Level 2 delegates will go “Beyond the Basics” to learn about formula syntax, creating charts, using new functions and learning the secrets of building effective tables in Excel.

To avoid booking a course that is either too hard or too easy, too fast or too slow, we ask that all delegates complete a pre-course checklist to assess their current level of Excel knowledge. This will enable us to ensure that all delegates are on the right course and able to follow the training at a similar pace:

This course is Live online and instructor-led and involves useful examples and exercises in a workshop environment to enable delegates to work ‘smarter’ with Excel and learn useful techniques, tips, and tricks.

Please Note: Delegates should bring/have a laptop with Excel 2016 or newer installed (unfortunately not an Apple laptop or a ‘web-based’ version of Excel). Whilst not essential, the laptop should have a mouse attached as this can be quicker for users during the course.

IMPORTANT – Files will be sent to use on your laptop. Some company laptops are not suitable as they have certain features disabled which prohibit the loading of files.

We have a few laptops that can be hired for use during a Face to Face course but should be arranged for anything run onsite in advance. (Not available for online courses)

We have an 8 delegate maximum per course so please book early to avoid disappointment.
