Virtual Basic Excel Training Course Content

Our virtual basic Excel training course can be run in all versions of Microsoft.

All of our Excel courses are full day courses, and they typically run from 9:30am to 4pm. To break up this long day we allow two coffee breaks and a lunch break throughout the day. Even though we have set timings for the course on our agendas, we can alter them to fit in with your needs. As well as our standard course agendas, we can also create a bespoke course for you tailored to the training needs you have. Just let us know what you need, we’d be happy to help.

Move With Us testimonial – helping train staff in Excel

I had a workshop session with John on a survey report that was taking a considerable amount of time to complete. John explained to us that if we changed how we were initially setting out the data that the production of reports and pivot tables would be much quicker.

The Excel training we had over the course of the next two days was fantastic. John managed to keep us all focussed, he is a very engaging trainer. We were all eager to get back to our desks and start implementing what we’d learnt to make our report running much more efficient.
