What’s Covered in the Course?
Level 1 MS Excel Certification
The Level 1 course provides a full overview of all of the most common features of Excel and how to use them. Upon completion of the Level 1 course, employees will have a basic understanding of how to use many of the functions of Excel and be able to use the programme with ease. Level 1 users are now prepared for the Level 2 certification.
Level 2 MS Excel Certification
The Level 2 course will expand on what was learnt in the Level 1 course and will teach more advanced concepts than those that were presented in the first course.
Those with some experience in Excel may feel that they can skip the Level 1 course, but it is highly likely that there are Level 1 functions that the employee is not using, and it is best to go through the course and review its content, before starting the Level 2 material.
Level 2 covers most of the functions in Excel, and, upon completion of the course, the employee will have the skills necessary to use Excel in most business environments. They will also be fully prepared to begin the Level 3 MS Excel course.
Level 3 Microsoft Excel Certification
The Level 3 MS Excel course is the most comprehensive of the three Excel courses presented here. If the employee has successfully passed the Level 1 and Level 2 courses, they will be fully prepared to begin this more advanced course.
