Delegates should already be very comfortable with using the basics of Excel. Some financial modelling or accountancy background, while not essential, will be very useful. Note that this course is an alternative to our two-day Advanced Excel course, not a follow-on.

Our two-day Excel Modelling course is definitely for grown-ups. It shows how to use Excel to build robust financial models (the emphasis is very much on following good practice in Excel, rather than learning about financial methodology). During the two days you'll learn about:
using range names to make formulae easier to use and read;
using short-cut keys (many, many short-cut keys!) to become more efficient;
how to use all of the most useful functions in Excel (and why INDEX/MATCH is preferable to VLOOKUP);
how to model cashflow and do investment appraisals;
how to work with multiple sheets;
using scenarios and data tables
You should have a good working knowledge of Excel to attend this course, and be willing to learn at a fast pace.

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.
If you book on a classroom course, the only thing you need to bring to the course is ... yourself! We even provide a notepad and a suprisingly nice pen for you to take notes with.
For online training you'll need two things:
You can see full details of our online course requirements here.
If you book a place on one of our courses:
Whatever type of course you book, we will also send you out a reminder a few days before the course is due to take place - not that (we hope) you'll have forgotten!
For classroom training, you won't need a computer - we (obviously) will provide that. However, you're welcome to use your own laptop if you prefer, providing that you have the correct software installed.
For online training you will need a computer, but you won't need to have any software installed. This is because you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed.
For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:
For classroom training it's always nice if people arrive a bit early too, to give people time to meet each other (and drink coffee).
After the course finishes you'll receive a digital certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).
We don't have any formal arrangement for answering questions after the course, but if you get stuck on something and email your trainer they should (and nearly always do!) respond as quickly as their training schedule allows.
