This is a one-day training course structured into 8 modules
This intensive, hands-on one-day training course is the ideal way to learn how to use Excel for accounting applications in the shortest possible time.
It covers formatting and managing data, auditing formulas and moves on to modelling and specialist accounting functions, as well as covering the essential tools of LOOKUPS and Pivot Tables.
This course has been designed for anyone who uses Excel to record, analyse and present financial data, whether in an accounting function or a more general office or sales environment.
Delegates do not need to be accountants but they must be proficient in Excel up to at least Intermediate standard. PLEASE NOTE: if delegates do not have a good grounding in Excel skills they will be unable to keep up with the class, and we would strongly recommend our Excel for Accounting: Introduction course instead.

You'll not find a course that takes you through how to use Excel for accounting in a shorter time than our Fast Track course. You don't need to be an accounting professional to benefit: anyone who is involved in any kind of financial analysis or charting and wants to work better, faster and produce more professional results will find this course invaluable.
We don't cover the more basic elements as in our Introduction course, nor do we go to the highest levels of our Advanced course, but for sheer effectiveness in getting you really focused on Excel's accounting tools in just one day, you won't find better.

All Activia excel accounts fast track has 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.
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.
Note: With non-credit card bookings you must sign and return a Booking Form before we can confirm your training.
Also note: If you are a private individual you must pay by credit card at the time of booking.
Note: Please allow 1 - 2 working days for your confirmation and invoice.
If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual. Refreshments in the form of tea/coffee will be provided for morning and afternoon breaks, but please note that we do not provide lunch. The timetable is as follows:
Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes are usually shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !
For training at your offices, this itinerary can be varied by prior arrangement.
With every Microsoft Excel training course with Activia, you get a free workbook as well as downloadable exercises, which match the course content exactly, so you can review and revise afterwards to reinforce your knowledge.
Every delegate on a Microsoft Excel course also gets an Activia Training Attendance Certificate.
