Microsoft Excel is one of the most powerful programs in the Office suite, but it is also one of the most complex and difficult to master. Most people can enter a few numbers and maybe do an equation or two, but how many know how to set up advanced data visualization, pivot tables, and integrate the program with the Python programming language and machine learning? Most likely, those who have mastered these skills are also the top performers you work with.
This is precisely why this – available now for , or 98% of the normal price – worth the investment. You view over 50 hours of content spread across eight classes packed with hands-on information presented in simple, easy-to-understand lessons.
The courses themselves offer a mix of the fundamentals of Excel functionality and very advanced techniques for extremely specific situations. For the former, you have classes in Excel dashboards and data visualization, which teach you how to use the program’s form controls to create informative interactive charts, as well as classes in macros, which can automate de many more complex data entry tasks and save you and your team a lot of time.
For the latter, the more advanced classes explain how to code specifically for data science, actions and machine learning, and even integrate your Excel knowledge with Python. Then there are the more niche classes that can still prove invaluable, like the Google Sheets for Excel Users class, which helps you tailor your Excel-specific skills to the equivalent of Google Drive.
Normally these courses would cost $ 2000, so this reduced price (again, ) makes it a solid professional investment. If you start learning these skills today, you can save hours of work in the future and thank yourself for years to come.
