Full Day Chapter PD Event – Intromediate Excel

Parksville, May 26th

Excel is by far one of the most prolific and most versatile programs installed on desktops today. It’s everywhere, and touches most business positions in some way. Yet the reality is that by far the vast majority of Excel users are self-taught. We struggle through the program, learning what we need in order to accomplish our tasks and then… stop learning? The truth is that once we’ve worked out a method to finish our work, we usually call it a day.

Did you know that there are almost always three ways to do everything in Excel? Are you using the most efficient method possible to get things done? This “intro-mediate” Excel course is designed to quickly review the basics, giving you a solid review of techniques that you should know to be efficient, but may have missed in your own education. Once the basics are covered, we’ll also jump into more advanced tools and techniques that you’ll be able to take back to your daily work.

*This is a hands-on seminar. Please bring a laptop with Excel 2007 or higher installed.
