What you'll learn in this excel class:

The Excel at Excel workshop is designed for students who are relatively familiar with other office productivity software, for example Microsoft Word. (The students who succeed the most are comfortable using a computer and navigating around desktop programs on their own). It introduces a range of Excel topics giving students a taste of the potential that can be achieved with Excel. It touches briefly on everything from navigation and layout to using functions and charts.

This workshop was not designed to go over any topic in extreme detail, but more as a "sampler" of topics. The expectation is for students to be able to leave and be familiar with several of the Excel skills necessary for most positions that require some "basic to intermediate" Excel knowledge.

Agenda (Not necessarily taught in the order below):

  • Terminology and Navigation
  • Formatting and Filling
  • Data Organization and Filtering
  • Conditional Formatting
  • Hiding and Grouping
  • Introduction to Formulas
  • Functions
  • Basic Math Functions
  • Conditional Math Functions
  • Reference Functions
  • Basic Data Cleaning
  • Defined Names
  • PivotTables
  • Charts
  • Freezing Views
  • Adding Notes and Comment
Takeaways

  • Input, gather, prep, and format data for more productive use and sharing.
  • Analyze data to improve decision making.
  • Save or export data, tables, and charts for others to use or view

Preparation

Students should have a general familiarity with Excel including knowing how to navigate a spreadsheet and how to copy & paste. Please bring a laptop with Microsoft 2016 or 2019 installed (PC or Mac) but please note there may be minor differences between Microsoft's implementation on the two platforms. It is also highly recommended that you have a mouse. A second monitor or tablet is not required but highly recommended.

Students will be emailed case study files prior to class that they should download to their desktop. This is an interactive class, and your participation and questions are encouraged.

This class will occur completely online so students should also have a laptop or computer with at least 4GB RAM and a working microphone and camera. Class pre-work will be distributed via email which will include detailed instructions for downloading Zoom and Slack (where the class will be hosted). An internet connection of at least 10 Mpbs download speed is also highly recommended.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/18/2018
The instructor was very nice and welcoming, but he made mistakes along the way, didn't provide a ton of explanation or depth to each topic, and ran over time. I felt that the description of the course was a little misleading, as we didn't really cover formulas that much. I was under the impression it would be a quick refresher on the basics and then a focus on key formulas to help with efficiencies. Pivot tables weren't covered within the time of the class, and we only did one example per section instead of looking at different use cases. Someone would ask a question, they were told it was coming up, and then never addressed again (partly because we ran out of time, partly because it was forgotten). This happened a few times. This is a very basic class, so if that is what you are looking for, great. But the topics weren't gone into in depth due to the amount of material and time restrictions. I would look for a more in depth course description next time or some pre-work samples.
