Advanced Excel Training Course

£585 + VAT for most venues (£685 + VAT for London)

2 days

Excel can do so much more than simple formulae!  This two-day advanced course will show you how to use VLOOKUP and MATCH/INDEX functions, create pivot tables and much, much more.  The idea is that by the time you finish the course you will have seen virtually everything that Excel can offer(apart from VBA, the subject of a separate two-day Excel VBA course).

Sample customer feedback

"We had a brilliant trainer. He engages trainees and delivers the topics clearly and concisely."

Michael Siddall (Lex)

"Excellent course, content and delivery. Manuals, exercises and take away info is excellent. Will highly recommend to anyone. I like the six person limit and easy to use website which I'll use in the future."

Robert Cooper (Royal Sun Alliance (RSA Group))

"Very good course, paced correctly, full answers given. Like the memory stick; will be very, very useful."

Robert Stevenson (Cross Keys Homes)

"I would like to say the training was absolutely fantastic, the trainer was brilliant and was able to answer any questions regardless of the context or complexity. The session was intense but well-paced and there was a great deal of flexibility so that it could be tailored to the three of us on the course! I had high expectations but was still surprised at the number of topics I learned including some interesting ad-hoc topics which were fascinating. I am going to beg my managers for as much budget as possible so that I can come back for more courses in the near future!! Thank You very much! "

Adam Yates (Bako North Western Ltd)

"Very good manual, easy to understand and follow."

Elena Nedelcu (Halliburton)

There are lots more where these came from (or just refresh this page to change the quotes shown).

Delegates should already have a good working knowledge of Excel (one way to achieve this would be to attend our one-day introduction to Excel and one-day intermediate Excel courses).  Note that the course uses Excel 2016, although if you're using Excel 2013, 2010 or even 2007 you'll still find the vast majority of this course useful (you can see what's different about Excel 2016 here).
