What We Need
  • Customized Excel Training session(s) over the course of 1-2 days
  • Sessions may be broken up into Beginner, Intermediate, and/or Advanced
  • Sample topics may include: formulas, commonly used functions, autofill, sorting and filtering, freezing, hiding, and grouping, formatting tips, keyboard shortcuts, pivot tables, charting and graphing, print readiness, collaborative work issues, and overall best practices
Additional Details

Want to offer this to multiple teams to individuals (at different stages) who have included excel training in their 2019 development goals.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have large classroom available for use, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have 20 computers with excell installed, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This will help all staff member with knowledge of how to operate excel - this will make the transfer of information into databases or merges more efficient.
