Intermediate Excel 2010, 2013 and 2016 Training Courses

DMW’s 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 or graph 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.

One great advantage of receiving training at your offices is that you are not distracted by the concerns of people from other businesses, as you might be if you attend public courses.

Questions are welcome and encouraged throughout the day. Often these lead to discussions of topics and techniques that might otherwise be overlooked.

On satisfactory completion of the course you are provided with a Certificate of Attendance.
