Investing in Excel training can make a large difference to office productivity. There is so much that can be done with Excel to make administration and accounting faster and more efficient, but there is an old adage which states that “you don’t know what you don’t know”! Many individuals are self taught with the software and this is sufficient up to a point, but it is difficult to make further progress when it is unclear what you should be learning. This is where a good structured training course comes in.

We deliver Microsoft Excel courses at Foundation, Intermediate & Advanced levels, so that your staff can benefit from further training  no matter what their current experience. Even complete beginners can learn how to become proficient Excel in just 1 day of onsite training. In order to help you determine the correct level for your staff, we provide free Training Needs Analysis. This is a quick and simple tick-box form which will provide all the information that we need to ensure that you receive precisely the right Excel training for your circumstances.

Our onsite daily training rates work our considerably cheaper than sending staff onto public open courses. Please visit our Onsite Training Courses page for a full breakdown of our daily group rates.

Microsoft Excel Training Courses in Stoke on Trent

Microsoft Excel Training Courses in Stoke on Trent.From £55 per person – Microsoft Excel training courses delivered onsite at your own offices in Stoke on Trent

Without doubt the most frequently delivered IT training in the UK is on Microsoft Excel. Many people are self-taught which is fine for the basics, but when it comes to getting the most from the software a certain amount of tuition is inevitably required. However, even a single day’s training can be highly beneficial in helping staff to become more effective in their everyday spreadsheet tasks, providing it is focused and targets the key workplace needs. Our range of Excel courses covers Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced levels and have been carefully designed to teach the most work-relevant topics at each stage in learning. All of our tutors are highly qualified and industry experienced; you can read what clients have to say about our training services on the Testimonials page.

MS Excel is of course primarily a business tool and as such, staff need to learn practical skills rather than just theoretical knowledge. To this end, all of our courses are very ‘hands on’ in nature with delegates using the software continually throughout the day. We can provide laptops to facilitate this if required and you can see full details, including pricing, on our Onsite Training Courses page.

To find out how you can arrange an in-house Excel training course at your own offices in Stoke on Trent, please call free on 0800 2922842, or alternatively email us below:

Microsoft Project Training Courses Glasgow

Microsoft Project Training Courses in Glasgow.Microsoft Project training courses in Glasgow from just £55 per delegate

The demand for MS Project training remains despite the cut in many organisations’ budgets. This is undoubtedly due in part to the amount of project time that can be saved with the software, but also because it has never been easy to teach oneself.

There are a number of common pitfalls in the use of Microsoft Project, one of the most notorious being the habit of entering start and finish dates for individual tasks. Whilst this would seem to be the obvious thing to do, setting start and finish dates through the task sheet actually takes away much of the software’s capability. Instead we should determine task dates through their relationships or ‘task dependencies’ as they are known. Learning the correct way to schedule your plans with Microsoft Project will give you far more flexibility should the need arise to make changes.

In just 1 day you can learn all the fundamentals of the software and be able to program projects with confidence. To see an overview of the course content please visit the Onsite Training Courses page on our main website.

Microsoft Excel Training Courses Retford

Microsoft Excel Training Courses in Retford.From £55 per person – Excel training courses delivered at your offices in Retford

There is always something new to learn about Microsoft Excel; from the early days of Office ’95 the application has undergone many changes and in many ways is much easier to use now than it used to be. However, the old adage that says ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ has always been particularly true when it comes to using MS Excel. Many people are self-taught and whilst this can work well for some, you cannot of course teach yourself that which you don’t know is there! And there are many features and techniques in Excel which go unnoticed by most.

This is where a professionally structured training course comes in. Just 1 day is sufficient to teach the methods in Excel which will streamline your spreadsheet tasks and cut down on the amount of office time spent ‘doing things the hard way’. Often the greatest time savings can be made among those who have some experience of working with Microsoft Excel, but have not been shown the correct way to use it. For these people our Intermediate training course is ideal. Some of the time-saving topics covered include absolute cell references, conditional formatting, filtering, VLookups and PivotTables / PivotCharts.

If you would like to discuss your own Excel raining requirements you can call us free on 0800 2922842, or alternatively email us at the address below. We will be very happy to discuss your options and give advice without any obligation.
