Excel Power User Course Outline

 (2 days)

*** WARNING: High Volume Class, Sign Up Early ***
Excel is our most popular series classes. A green flag beside a date on the right means that a session has met the minimum enrollment levels and is running. However, it is common for dates for this course to fill several weeks in advance. Even if a date has a green flag, you might not be able to get into that session if it is full. To avoid disappointment, it is best to register for this class at least three weeks in advance.

Overview
This two-day class offers the "best of" topics from our series of Excel classes:

- Excel Introduction (just tips and short-cuts from this class)
- Excel Charts Formatting and Reporting
- Excel Database Features and Pivot Tables
- Excel Workbooks, Formulas and Functions
- Excel Macros (Supplemental Hand-out)

This jam-packed, fast-paced class provides an overview of the most powerful and time-saving Excel techniques. In addition, you will receive a complete 5-volume set of Excel course materials from the above courses (with related data files).

With this complete reference library you will be able follow along in class as well as review additional topics that were not covered in the two-day event. Individuals preparing for their MOS Certification who need a quick Excel refresher class might also find this course of interest.

*** Version Note ***
While this class is being taught using the 2016 version of the Excel software, almost all topics (except for a few new 2016-only chart types) will be applicable to users of Excel 2013.

Target Student
You already know Excel and have been working with it for years. In the past, other Excel users might have even turned to you for assistance. But with all of the new features in Excel, your skills have not kept pace. To regain your edge, you don’t need an introduction class or a class on a single topic. You need a fast-paced overview. A class that will bring you up to speed on the latest features of Excel across all topics such as charting, database features, pivot tables, multiple worksheets, advanced functions and even an introduction to Macros. If you have a good foundation in Excel and want to be a Power User, this class is for you!

Prerequisites
