Microsoft Excel Basics


This six-hour course covers Microsoft Excel essentials including screen components, ribbon, tabs, groups and commands, and identifies a variety of tricks to make you a more efficient user, including how to use the four mouse pointers and the many right-click shortcut menus.

Even if you’ve used Excel for years, you will learn dozens of tips to help you work more efficiently and effectively. In this interactive class, you’ll build a spreadsheet, enter and modify your data, refine it with new easy formatting, save it and print it. Formulas are key components of Excel, and course participants will engage in hands-on practice creating totals, minimums, averages and percentages.
