About this workshop

Pop quiz: How useful is dirty data?

If you answered, “Not at all,” you got it right. Now that you’ve got the data basics down, it’s time to clean your data and prepare it for analysis.

This free, 2-hour workshop will teach you best practices for handling null values and cleaning your data, then we’ll dive into basic formulas and functions like Trim, Text, AVERAGE, and COUNT to take your data cleaning skills up a notch.

Make sure to join us for next week where we’ll cover Excel Analytics Basics. You’ll take your freshly cleaned dataset and start to analyze it using popular methods like Pivot Tables and VLOOKUP to find answers to your hypothesis. We’ll see you there.


You’ll leave this workshop knowing:

  • Common data cleaning actions like reformatting dates, removing duplicates, and combining data sources
  • How to use basic Excel functions and formulas like Trim, Text, AVERAGE, COUNT, and more to get your data ready for analysis
