Microsoft Excel Expert Course

Our course

Microsoft Excel is used by millions of professionals worldwide and is often the go-to tool for businesses when organising projects, managing accounts, analysing performance and so much more.

This course is designed to help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to your Excel skills, and provides everything you need to know to pass the MO-201: Microsoft Excel Expert (Excel and Excel 2019) certification exam.

We’ve tailored our course to accounting and finance, as this discipline relies on Excel expertise more than many others. Excel is also neglected by many of the top finance qualification bodies, so this course aims to fill that gap in your skillset and on your CV.

That being said, a background in finance is not essential for this course and the skills you’ll gain can be applied in any situation where data is produced, analysed or presented.

Course length: 20 hours

(Great for CPD!)

Why get an Excel qualification?

It almost goes without saying how renowned and respected certification directly from Microsoft can be.
