Excel – Intermediate

July 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Microsoft Excel is the most commonly used spreadsheet application. Learning how to use Excel more effectively is an investment in both your personal and professional life. Excel makes it easy to monitor financial performance, such as business profit or loss, calculate payments on large purchases, plan a budget, or stay organized with checklists.

As an employee, learning how to use Excel efficiently provides value, since most jobs utilize this application. This opens up more opportunities for employment and career advancement.

When employees know how to use Excel, it improves their efficiency in the workplace. Employees who know how to create detailed worksheets, invoices, charts, and complex formulas achieve professional results in a fraction of the time.

The Excel – Intermediate session will help participants to create advanced workbooks and worksheets that can help them use the program and deepen their understanding of their organization’s information. This course will use Microsoft Office Excel 2016 – computers and software will be provided for instruction purposes. Don’t have the 2016 version? No problem – you can still apply most of what you learn in this session to older versions and/or nonprofits can purchase the newer version at a significantly lower price through TechSoup!
