Excel Bootcamp | Stamford

About this workshop

This bootcamp is an excel class that is designed to provide beginner participants with a general overview of Excel topics and specifically a good understanding of several different functions. It combines most of the material and key topics from the two workshops into an intense one-day class. Given the short timeframe and large amount of topics covered, beginner participants are expected to be able to learn quickly. The bootcamp is designed for participants who can pick up material quickly and are looking to go from relatively little knowledge of Excel to being able to achieve complex tasks and complex problems in just one day.
