About This Class

The Excel at Excel workshop is designed for participants who are relatively familiar with other office productivity software, for example Microsoft Word. (The participants who succeed the most are comfortable using a computer and navigating around desktop programs on their own). It introduces a range of Excel topics giving participants a taste of the potential that can be achieved with Excel. It touches briefly on everything from navigation and layout to using functions and charts. This workshop was not designed to go over any topic in extreme detail, but more as a "sampler" of topics. The expectation is for participants to be able to leave and be familiar with several of the Excel skills necessary for most positions that require some "basic to intermediate" Excel knowledge.

Agenda (not necessarily taught in this order) - Terminology and Navigation - Filtering, Sorting, Formatting - Removing Duplicates - Hiding and Grouping Data - Conditional Formatting - Introduction to Formulas - Basic Math Functions - PivotTables - Charts and Graphs

The best parking structure to use is at 350 E. 2nd Street. It is directly next door (to the right) of our building. The cost is $2.00/15 min ($10 max), $5.00 flat rate after 4pm.

  • Work smarter and take advantage of the most helpful functions and features

Preparation

Please bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel installed (PC recommended, Mac acceptable). Most functions/features also work on a Mac although there may be minor differences. The instructor will be using a PC. It is also recommended that you bring a mouse. This is an interactive class, and your participation and questions are encouraged.

I have over 20 years of experience in data analytics and network engineering. I have always had a love for technology and an appreciation for the changes that occur on a yearly basis. I have worked for firms ranging from workmen's comp and technology related companies to as financial institutions. One of the most exciting aspects of learning data analytics is that there is always something new on the horizon.
