Quality Computer Training in a Relaxed Setting between Peebles and Biggar

This is a four-hour course designed for those who can already use a computer and need to use Microsoft Excel to produce simple spreadsheets, but have little or no experience of this program. The training content is outlined below.

At the end of the course participants will be able to enter data into a spreadsheet, format that data, perform simple calculations using that data and present that data in an attractive printed form. The course leads on to two more advanced Excel courses, one dealing with the efficient development of complex spreadsheets using multiple sheets and the other dealing with the use of Excel to simulate a database.

The course typically runs during a morning from 9.00 AM to 1.00 PM but could span four hours in the middle of the day if preferred. Participants may also be residential.
