While many believe Excel is only used to process complicated data, anyone can learn how to take advantage of the program’s powerful features. Whether you’re keeping a budget, organising a training log, or creating an invoice, Excel makes it easy to work with different types of data.

This course is perfectly designed for absolute beginners or simply have limited experience in working with formulas and building spreadsheets from scratch.

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:

If we feel that you are “beyond” the elements and concepts discussed in this course – we will recommend which level we feel would most benefit you. This assessment can save both time and money!

What we will cover:

  • Excel screen and terminology
  • Data Input & Editing
  • Moving and Copying data
  • Saving / Opening / Closing a Workbook
  • Formatting Cells, Columns and Rows
  • Working with Dates in Excel
  • Introducing Simple Formulae (necessary to advance to higher level Excel courses)
  • Using the SUM function
  • Understanding formula syntax (necessary to advance to higher level Excel courses)

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.

Course Requirements:

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 face to face course, but should be arranged in advance.

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