This Level 3 course is designed for experienced and highly proficient users of Excel and builds on the concepts learned in ‘Excel Level 2: Beyond the Basics’.

We aim to develop a range of more advanced skills to become true “power” users. Revolutionise the way you manage, present, or otherwise, run your department or business! This course prepares delegates for the ‘Excel Level 4 – Pro User’ course.

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 live online 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 they should be arranged in advance.

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

You can arrange to have this training onsite at your facility on a date and time that is most convenient for your team. Contact us to discuss a bespoke online or on-site offering today.
