Excel 1-Day Advanced Workshop | Los Angeles

About this workshop

The Excel 1-Day Advanced Workshop requires working knowledge of Excel, either self-taught or through our Excel 1-Day Fundamentals Course. If you’re looking to skill up with both our fundamentals and advanced curriculum, join our Excel 2-Day Intensive Course.

Virtually everyone who works with data could benefit by gaining a better understanding of Microsoft Excel. This course extends beyond the simple addition of data and will harness the powerful tool to assist in manipulating data efficiently. You’ll learn various functions to stay organized, analyze data and go through situational overviews of time-saving shortcuts to dramatically improve your efficiency.

This 6-hour Excel 1-Day Advanced Course is the interactive and hands-on way to continue to leverage your data. You will dive head first into advanced Excel techniques, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you'll know how to ask — and answer — the right questions of your data sets.
