What Will You Learn?

Data has always been important to businesses and will only become more so. Being able to effectively manipulate, learn from and display the information within spreadsheets so that you and others can gain insight from them, is a skill that any business will find desirable – making those who can do so, a real asset.

The Advanced Excel Diploma Course will elevate your expertise in the use of Excel – explaining advanced formulas, data manipulation, graphical representation, security, accuracy, and annotation, advanced statistical analysis tools and error fixing.

We’ll begin by exploring how to set up and use pivot tables and how to slice and filter the data for advanced analysis, using macros to automate repetitive tasks and increase efficiency and take an introductory look at VBA.

From there, we’ll move onto wildcard expressions and advanced functions such as SUMIF and COUNTIF, and using AVERAGEIF, IFS, SUMIFS and COUNTIFS for advanced analysis, along with how to use the LOOKUP function, and its variations, to search and reference data.

We’ll look at how to secure and protect data from unauthorised usage, how to make information more readable for others with comments and notes, and how to perform Find and Replace queries. The course also covers how to validate data and create drop-downs and spreadsheets with advanced features to limit the entry of invalid data. 

For those who require advanced statistical analysis, you’ll learn how to use Excel’s powerful statistical functions and the Analysis ToolPak add-in to extend functionality even further.

Lastly, the course covers the most common errors that you may come across in Excel and how to correct them.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Know how to navigate Excel, view and print Excel files, and be aware of which tools are at your disposal and how to find them
  • Understand how to effectively format and calculate within Excel
  • Understand what can be achieved with Excel regarding functions and advanced formulas
  • Be able to effectively present data using charts and graphs
  • Learn how to use advanced statistical analysis tools
  • Be able to avoid common Excel errors

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
