  • Inserting, editing, and deleting comments
  • Creating borders
  • Wrapping text
  • Merging cells
  • Pasting, sorting, and converting columns to rows
  • Creating graphs and charts

This beginners course is recommended for anyone who might use Excel at home or at work for uncomplicated reasons, such as tracking simple expenditures or for calculating sums or totals.

MS Excel Intermediate Course

The MS Excel Intermediate Course will take what you learnt in the beginners course and expand upon it. Additionally, this course will teach you more advanced concepts than those that were presented in the beginners course.

Some of the highlights of the intermediate Excel course include the following:

  • Learning more about intermediate Excel functions including ABS, SUMIF, HLOOKUP, VLOOKUP, COUNTIF, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS, and AVERAGEA
  • Data validation with date, list, time, and numbers
  • Functions such as RANK, MIN, MAX, CHAR, MODE, MEDIAN, CODE, CLEAN, and EXACT

  • Changing border colour and theme

Before jumping into the MS Excel Intermediate course, one should have a good basic overview of the beginner Excel functions. Those with experience in Excel might feel as if they can skip the beginner course, but it is best to at least go through the course and review it before starting the intermediate curriculum.

The curriculum in the intermediate course is designed for those who work with Excel in the workplace, and it is primarily for those who want to improve their skills with this program.

MS Excel Advanced Course

The MS Excel Advanced Course is the longest and the most intense of the three Excel courses presented here. However, if you have successfully passed the beginner and the intermediate courses, you should consider yourself fully prepared to begin the advanced course.

Some of the concepts that you will learn in the MS Excel Advance Course include the following:

  • VLOOKUP Advanced formula options and manipulations
  • Other advanced functions including OR, AND, CHOOSE, INDIRECT, REPLACE, LEN, LEFT, FIND
  • Colouring a column and row with a formula
  • Highlighting a cell with a formula
  • Functions including DGET, DMAX, DPRODUCT, DCOUNTA, DCOUNT and DSUM
  • Calculating loan IPMT and EMI
  • Full explanation of the INDEX and MATCH functions, covering several modules
  • Looking up data
  • Selecting only cells containing comments
  • Hiding formulas

As you can see, the information you will get from the MS Excel Advanced Course will fully prepare you for virtually any career path, including those that require advanced skills with this software. Though this course is the longest and most involved of the three, once you complete it, you will have the knowledge and skills that most can only dream of.

What does study method mean?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
