About This Class

The Excel at Excel workshop is designed for participants who have little to no familiarity with Excel. (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 very basic arithmetic 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 " Excel knowledge.
