Advanced Microsoft Excel Skills Training Available

[Friday, March 3, 2017]

Companies and organizations are always interested in business intelligence — raw data that can be turned into actionable knowledge. This need for business intelligence manifests itself in many forms. The Workforce Community and Business Programs is offering two courses to help business professionals deliver information and data: “Excel 2013 Dashboards” from 8 a.m. to noon on Tuesday and Thursday, March 14 and 16 and an “Excel 2013: Formulas and Functions Made Easy” from 1-5 p.m. Thursday, March 16.

Dashboards are reporting mechanisms that deliver business intelligence in a graphical form. Most data analysis benefits from a spreadsheet, so Excel is inherently part of any business-intelligence tool portfolio. The fee for this eight-hour Dashboard course is $189. Refer to course code: NTE C48 002 when registering.

A formula is an expression which calculates the value of a cell and functions are predefined formulas and are already available. In the Excel 2013: Formulas and Functions Made Easy” course, participants work with a variety of formulas and functions designed to streamline their work in Excel. They will learn basic functions such as SUM, AVERAGE, COUNT, MIN, and MAX that every Excel user needs to know. The fee for the four-hour Excel Formulas course is $89.
