Hi - if you are browsing our website in late July 2021, can you note that we are currently building our new programme, which is slightly delayed as we are waiting for confirmation of dates from our training venue, post Covid. So the dates posted here for this course are holding dates, so that we can get started on updating the web. 

All other information is correct, exept for the dates. If you are interested in the course, do get in touch and we'll let you know just as soon as we have the actual dates - john@civicostraining.org . Alternatively, please just check back to the site in early August, when things should be resolved and actual dates are in place. Thanks for your patience!

Finally get to grips with Microsoft Excel!

You will leave this course with the basic skills necessary to create, edit, format and manipulate spreadsheets data. No previous experience of Excel is necessary, but attendees should have a basic understanding of PCs, including familiarity with keyboard and mouse.

Course Content

  • Getting Started. In this section, you’ll learn easy techniques      that enable you to select Cells, groups of Cells (called Ranges), and      nonadjacent cells.

  • Entering data. The first steps to creating a useful worksheet      is entering data. By entering data, you are inputting the information that      you want Excel to display, calculate, and store.

  • Creating Simple Formulas. Formulas are nothing to be intimidated by.      They are mostly simple instructions to Excel to make some sort of      calculation that can then be applied as often as you need it. Here, we      take you through some of the basic commands.

  • Revision exercises. Some simple exercises to help you practise      what you have learned so far. With the tutor on hand too help when you are      stuck.

  • Working with Functions. Functions are simply formulas that Excel has      already prepared for you. They save typing - and brainpower! We show you      how to access and use them.

  • Simple formatting options.  We      take you through some simple formatting tricks that can help make your      worksheets look and perform better.

  • Build you first spreadsheet. We pull together your new learning to build      a simple spreadsheet.  A step by      step, tutor led session, using data that we supply.

The course is delivered using our purpose-built Excel workbook, which is yours to keep.

All attendees also have free access to an online Excel helpdesk for six months, where we will be happy to provide online refreshers, or help with any issue you have.

This Excel training can be delivered as an in-house session. 

We will be happy to arrange an online session of either course for up to 12 of your staff, at a time that suits best for you.
