Course Overview

Developing formulas for calculations you want to make in Excel can be tedious and complicated. Excel has an entire library of functions or predefined formulas that you can use. There are hundreds of functions in Excel that allow you to format text, reference cells, calculate financial rates, look up information and more.

This course allows the user to explore the vast range of Excel functions and gain an understanding of how to apply functions to their own work.

The day commences with a brief review of commands covered in the Level 1 course, followed by an in-depth look at the main types of functions available and how to use them effectively.

This is a one-day course running from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm.
Training is hands-on and tutor-led.
We provide a comprehensive training manual, lunch and certification.
Courses run at both Swansea and Cardiff locations.
This course can be run as a company specific option either at your site or our own.
