Microsoft Excel Rapid Learn

We all tend to work at a faster pace these days, however we are still expected to put time aside to learn how to operate our software in a manner that saves us time and effort. If you work alone or as part of a small business, taking time out can be difficult. Our Rapid Learn Microsoft Excel training course is a fast way to help you develop the skills necessary to perform your daily tasks and can be accomplished over two separate half day sessions.

On this course you will quickly learn how to build on the basics of starting a new spreadsheet, through to creating and working on several spreadsheets at the same time. You will be able to use and understand formulas and formatting so that you can perform functional data analysis.

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 Advanced Microsoft Excel course.

To get the most out of this course no previous experience of using spreadsheets is required but ideally you should be comfortable with the Microsoft Windows environment.
