Microsoft Excel Certification Level 2
Please Note: This course uses the Microsoft 365 version of Excel. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.
The Microsoft (MS) Excel Certification Level 2 course will take what the team member learnt in the Level 1 course and expand on it, teaching them more advanced concepts than those that were presented in the earlier course.
What’s Covered in the Course?
The material in the Level 2 course is designed for those who work with Excel in the workplace and wish to improve their skills. Whether the employee is involved in investments, banking or consulting, the content will be useful for anyone who tracks and analyses a lot of data.
Employees who are new to the workforce will need to ensure that they are equipped with at least intermediate (Level 2) Excel skills.
Before starting this Level 2 course, the employee should have a good grasp of the Level 1 Excel functions. Those with experience in Excel may feel that they can skip the Level 1 course, but it is advisable to at least review the course material, before starting the Level 2 material.
The course teaches team members how to use functions, including AVERAGEA, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS and ABS. They will also learn data validation information, focusing on the type of data validation, such as date, list and time, as well as more information on specific functions, including CHAR, CODE, MEDIAN, MODE and ROUND and how to utilise these functions, in order to meet the organisation’s needs.
Other information in the Level 2 course includes how to change text in Excel, e.g., changing text to all upper case or lower case. Team members will also learn how to change the background and add a custom image, how to use AutoFill and how to insert special characters.
Upon completing the course, employees will know about most of the functions that Excel has and how to use the software at an intermediate level, which is sufficient to be able to use Excel in most business environments.
