Excel is an electronic spreadsheet program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. You use Excel to organize, calculate, and analyze data.

In Excel, you work with worksheets, which consist of rows and columns that intersect to form cells. Cells contain various kinds of data that you can format, sort, and analyze. An Excel file is called a workbook, which contains several blank worksheets.

*Note - This course is delivered on the 2019 version of the product & prepares students for the Microsoft Office Specialist and Expert exams for Excel 2019. Using an older version of Office today? There is 10% difference between 2013, 2016 and 2019.


Students will get the most out of this course if their goal is to become proficient in using Microsoft Excel to create basic worksheets and charts for data tracking and reporting. Students should have little or no experience using Microsoft Excel or any other spreadsheet program.

*Note – If you are unsure what course level you should take, you might consider taking a short self-assessment available
