Organizations the world over rely on information to make sound decisions regarding all manner of affairs. But with the amount of available data growing on a daily basis, the ability to make sense of all of that data is becoming more and more challenging. Fortunately, this is where the power of Microsoft Excel can help.
Excel can help students organize, calculate, analyze, revise, update, and present their data in ways that will help the decision makers in their organization steer them in the right direction. It will also make these tasks much easier for students to accomplish, and in much less time, than if they used traditional pen-and-paper methods or non-specialized software. This course aims to provide students with a foundation for Excel knowledge and skills, which they can build upon to eventually become an expert in data manipulation.
Note: Most Office 365 users perform the majority of their daily tasks using the desktop version of the Office software, so that is the focus of this training. The course material will also enable students to access and effectively utilize many web-based resources provided with their Office 365 subscription. This includes brief coverage of key skills for using Excel for the Web and OneDrive. Helpful notes throughout the material alert students to cases where the online version of the application may function differently from the primary, desktop version.
This course covers Microsoft Office Specialist Program exam objectives to help students prepare for the Excel Associate (Office 365 and Office 2019): Exam MO-200 and Excel Expert (Office 365 and Office 2019): Exam MO-201.
