Microsoft® Excel Intermediate Training Courses

Intermediate Microsoft Excel courses are for spreadsheet users who want to expand their skills in creating and checking formula, and to develop skills for managing multiple spreadsheets, for chart making and for working with substantial sets of data.

A major objective of the training is to set you up to use spreadsheets in your work. With this in mind hands-on exercises are based wherever possible on worksheets like those you meet day-to-day in the office.

Questions are welcome and encouraged throughout the day. Often these lead to in-depth discussions of topics and techniques of particular relevnac.
