Excel Power User Training

Excel Power User Training Courses

Microsoft Excel is an essential tool for most modern businesses, providing a dazzling array of features for manipulating and analyzing organisational data. The traditional route to becoming an Excel power user has been to develop a fairly large repertoire of advanced techniques; such as the creation of complex formulas and VBA macros. However; thanks to the significant enhancements made to Excel by Microsoft; it is now possible for all of your Excel users to become power users!

Our Excel power user courses show delegates who have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of Excel how they can become power users simply by mastering a series of powerful new features which have been available in Excel for a few years now, but of which most users are still blissfully unaware. G Com Solutions run Excel power user courses every month, at our training centre in Peterborough; and we can also provide on-site training, anywhere in the UK.

About Microsoft Excel

One of the pivotal components of the Microsoft Office, Microsoft Excel is the
world’s premier spreadsheet software. It boasts an extremely powerful infrastructure
incorporating complex tools for data analysis and manipulation with a user-friendly
interface and huge range of time-saving shortcuts and helpers. If you have bought this sophisticated piece of software, it makes sense to ensure that your staff members know how to use it effectively.

Scheduled Excel training courses

Tutor-led software training has the benefit that delegates are able to ask questions as they learn and have complex concepts explained and demonstrated to them until they fully understand them.

Booking your staff on a public Excel course is of course one possibility. However, increasingly companies are demanding to have this training customised to meet their specific demands. Microsoft Excel can be used for a variety of data analysis and storage tasks: not everyone uses it in the same way. Perhaps you will be using it for complex business modelling. Or, you may be using it to create interactive forms and reports complete with complex calculations. Maybe your staff will be using the program in a database role recording information under column headings. Booking a customised course will ensure that you only pay for instruction which is relevant to your requirements and reflects the way in which you will be using Microsoft Excel.

Customising Your Excel training

Before you start contacting Excel training companies, it would be a good idea to ensure that you have a clear idea of what you want to achieve by using Excel and that your expectations are realistic. When you approach training companies, you should make it clear that you do not simply want them to deliver their standard Excel courses but that you require a customised programme of training. Between you, a schedule of topics to be covered should then be drawn up and the duration of the program decided.

The customisation process may also involve identifying different requirements within your own organisation. Different people may need to do different tasks with the program and therefore need different skills. For example, some of your users will be primarily interested in using Excel for business analysis and projection. Their primary areas of interest may be the “What if” analysis tool like goal seek, scenarios and pivot tables. On the other hand, you may have people who are interested in creating charts and reports either for printing or for use in PowerPoint presentations.

We are always willing to accommodate the specific needs of your organisation and the different profiles of the staff members: accounts, sales and marketing, etc. Between us, we can create a program of study which satisfies the needs of all your users. Perhaps this may mean, having different courses for users with different profiles or perhaps the best approach may be a modular one whereby some modules are taken by everyone while others are only attended by certain user groups.
