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.

IKON Dental Suite Testimonial – helping train staff in Microsoft Office

We wanted to share a quick note and let you know that you did a really good job on giving us the training that we need for Excel and PowerPoint.

As we all know these both are big topics which suit every company differently. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to tailor this course to our needs.

John is an excellent trainer and very generous with his tips. We were also very impressed by the excellent and efficient before and after communication in between us.

The whole team benefitted greatly from the day. We are looking forward booking more courses provided by you.

JPL IT Training has provided exceptional remote training for members of our Sales & Marketing team.

As a result they have been implementing key takeaways in their day-to-day work such as shortcuts and formatting tools. The training was 1-2-1 and very flexible to each learners’ requirements. This style was a fantastic method of training for our business. Thank you to John & Rachel!

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.
