Course description

Excel is used extensively for data analysis – it is one of its most powerful features.  Beyond Excel’s basic features, there are a range of advanced tools and techniques that can be used to make analysing data quicker, easier and more efficient.

Using powerful methods such as advanced filters, pivot tables, and data consolidation, we show you how to organise, analyse, and summarise your data in a more effective way, enabling you to get more out of it.

If you’re already an experienced Excel user, confident in creating and editing worksheets and writing basic formulas, this advanced Excel training course will enhance your current skill level.

What will I get out of it?

  • Work with databases to summarise, analyse and filter information
  • Build Pivot Tables for easy data analysis
  • Use Excel tools to more effectively manage large spreadsheets
