Microsoft Excel Data Worker Training

Microsoft Excel Data Worker

If you use Excel to sort, filter, and analyze data for your company, our course will help. We provide best practices, valuable shortcuts, and essential skills for data workers.

A popular topic covered is pivot tables, which are as important to data workers as hammers are to builders- they aren’t the only tool on the toolbelt, but they’re ones that will see a lot of use. Though they may seem intimidating, building meaningful pivot tables only requires a few steps and understanding their purpose. We focus on teaching the 'why' and 'how' of pivot table construction. We’ll also offer guidance on data cleaning using Excel's powerful Power Query feature.

Lastly, we cover data visualization in Excel, which offers a range of charts and graphs. We focus on the basics of visualizing data and adding value to your data story through effective data presentation. Join us for this comprehensive overview and gain a solid footing in Excel as a highly skilled data worker.
