Microsoft Excel – Level 1

Do you need to learn more about one of the most popular Microsoft programs? Microsoft Excel is a very useful, dynamic spreadsheet created by Microsoft as a tool to organize and sort small or large amounts of data. Do spreadsheets perplex you? Do you need to put a graph into your PowerPoint presentation to your boss next month? Do you need to add conditional formatting to a range of cells? This class may be the one for you.

The class will use practical examples of working with Data in Excel. It will include practice time and time for questions.

This class is typically arranged to be in two (3 hour) sessions. That way, trainees can put learned concepts into practice and come back with questions or concerns.

NOTE: Attendees need to have a basic understanding of computer operation (logging in, keyboarding, copy/paste, etc).
