Excel 2007/10 PC

Overview

Microsoft Excel, the world's most popular spreadsheet software, is designed to help users perform a myriad of business tasks, from to-do lists to forecasts to macros and VBA. Excel is our flagship course, used by hundreds of thousands of customers and clients around the world including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and many blue-chip firms.

Most office staff can use Excel to a basic level for data entry, to format cells, even to use a basic PivotTable. But few make it to the next level, to be able to build models, conduct scenario analyses, apply checks to flag errors, create a dashboard or format to a client-ready standard.

Our best-selling, award-winning, accredited course will do all of this. And it will do so efficiently, by using our proprietary filtering algorithm to direct your attention to those areas of Excel most relevant to you.
