Excel: The Essentials

The Need:

Do you use Excel regularly in your role? Are you confident in your abilities? Have you been tasked with working on a large spreadsheet but are feeling overwhelmed? Have you been given a project that relies on a solid understanding of Excel? Do you need to input or organise large amounts of data accurately? Can you find key information from your data quickly?

If any of the above questions relate to you, then this popular course should be the starting point in your Excel journey.

Excel users often receive no formal instruction or training in Excel and learn knowledge from a colleague or by asking questions when necessary. This means they are potentially missing out on key beneficial techniques on how to navigate quickly, input data efficiently, organise data, and format it clearly.
