Delivered online via Zoom in two sessions of 3.5 hours

Make the most of lockdown and finally get to grips with Microsoft Excel!

Civicos Training has adapted its acclaimed Microsoft Excel training  so that it can be taught online. 

Each course is delivered over two online sessions of 3.5 hours apiece, using bite-sized lessons that focus in turn upon one important aspect of Excel.  The learning is taken at an even pace, with opportunities for one-to-one interaction with the tutor if you are stuck on a concept. And the delivery method could not be simpler, with each course built into an Excel document that we supply before the course, containing lots and lots of simple exercises, tips and examples. This docuent is yours to keep, so it can be used a really useful reference document long after the course is finished.

Best of all – each attendee will have access for six months to our absolutely free Excel helpdesk! You simply email us with your Excel issue, and we will connect with you via email or Zoom to take you through the ways to sort out your issue.

Getting  Started in Microsoft Excel

This course   is absolutely ideal for people who are either starting out in Microsoft  Excel, or  who know a few of the basics and who would like a refresher. Over two online sessions, the tutor will take you through seven short lessons, each one looking at   a different key skill:

  • Getting Started: Some basic   terminology, cells, rows, columns, the Excel Ribbon

  • Selection Techniques: selecting   the data you want to manipulate

  • Entering Data: moving data,   copying, drag and drop, autofill

  • Creating Simple Formulas: the   formula structure, simple addition, subtraction etc

  • Revision Exercises: Some simple   revision exercises to embed the learning so far

  • Working with Functions: A look at   the most useful built-in Excel functions

  • More Formatting: From text   wrapping to conditional formatting and merging cells

  • Build Your Own: A simple   walkthrough to help you pull together your first spreadsheet

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. And if government restrictions allow, and you can provide a training space that meets all safety and hygiene requirements, we will also be happy to deliver this course in a classroom setting.
