The aim of this Excel Level 2 training course is 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 learn 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 instructor led and involves useful examples and exercises in a workshop environment to enable delegates to work ‘smarter’ with Excel as well as learn useful techniques, tips, and tricks.

Please Note: Delegates should bring 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.

IMPORTANTThe trainer will need to install exercise files on your laptop should you choose to use your own. Some company laptops are not suitable as they have certain features disabled which prohibit the loading of files.

We do have a few laptops that can be hired for use during the course but should be arranged in advance.

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