Who Should Attend This Excel Course?
This Excel course was written for anyone who needs to make figure work easier, particularly at work or university and who has little or no experience with Excel or is self-taught.
It is a much more thorough Excel course than many, covering beginners’ to intermediates subjects in depth.
And because you can study this course at times to suit you, time can be taken to practice and become “fluent” in all aspects of Excel.
If you should need a higher level of Excel skill, we also offer an advanced course. Click here to learn about our Advanced Excel Course.
