Virtual Basic Excel Training Course

Virtual basic Excel training course: Excel iconOur 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.
