TARGET AUDIENCE

Anyone with an advanced knowledge of Excel who wants to learn how to create dashboards which will enhance their spreadsheets with easily understood and interactive data displays.

General Information

All Activia excel training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Excel training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for Microsoft Excel courses is 8 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 6 delegates.

Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 10 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
