Excel Advanced Course 2016

Course Overview

This is a one-day training course tailored to give intermediate Excel users a complete command of Microsoft Excel. Led by dedicated instructors who are fully versed in the Microsoft Office package, you’ll build upon your existing skills and embrace the more complex and technical aspects of Excel. We’ll teach you how to summarise large datasets quickly and confidently using PivotTables, protect data, validate data entry, audit formulas, implement logical functions, nest functions, utilise analytical tools such as Goal Seek and Data tables, create and manage templates as well as automating repetitive tasks using Macros and much more.

Raising the Bar sets a new industry standard for training courses. Our Excel training is delivered face-to-face by industry leading experts who use clear demonstrations and easy to follow instructions to help lead students to success. Our class sizes are small so that all students receive the required attention and achieve the best possible learning outcomes. We also supply all the equipment you need, so you can show up on the day without having to bring a thing. You’ll learn through clear hands-on activities and leave with brand new skills and knowledge of Excel that far exceeds your expectations.

At the end of the Excel Advanced course, you’ll receive a certificate of completion, a detailed course manual to work through at your own pace and the proficiency required to use Excel’s more complex functions.
