Advanced Microsoft Excel

For those of us who are experienced and compentent users of Excel, but find the knowledge we currently have is not sufficient to overcome some aspects that are still a challenge for us. Our Advanced Microsoft Excel training course will give you the knowledge and the skills to work with data analysis on a more complex level.
On this course you will navigate the more advanced nested functions and capabilities of Microsoft Excel. You will learn how to analyse and extract more complex data information, apply advanced calculations and formatting and create simple coding.
The course will give you hands on experience via structured exercises during the session and will give you the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned. This course is the ideal stepping stone for our VBA Programming Microsoft Excel course.
To get the most out of this course some experience of creating and using spreadsheets is recommended and ideally you should be comfortable with the Microsoft Windows environment.
