This course is available in the following formats (all prices exclude VAT):
You only need a basic knowledge of Excel for this course. You'll find it easier if you have some programming experience, although this isn't essential. What you must have is a good aptitude for computers (otherwise this will be a l-o-n-g three days ...).

Our two-day Introduction to VBA course will be sufficient for most people to get them up and running with the programming language built into Microsoft Office. However, there are some important omissions from the two-day introductory course, which the three-day fast-track course has time to cover. Notably:
Getting Excel to talk to other Office applications using VBA;
Reading and writing text files; and
Programming with arrays.
For fast groups the three-day course will also have time to cover linking to databases using VBA. You should only consider attending this fast-track course if you consider yourself to be quick at picking up new software.
This fast-track course combines topics from the following other Wise Owl courses:

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:

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.
