MS Excel Intermediate Course
Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016 for module content and all related tests. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.

What you will learn
Some of the highlights of the intermediate Excel course include the following:
- Learning more about intermediate Excel functions including ABS, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS, and AVERAGEA
- Data validation with date, list, time, and numbers
- Functions such as RANK, MIN, MAX, CHAR, MODE, MEDIAN, CODE, CLEAN, and EXACT
- How to remove duplicates in Excel
- Creating random numbers
- Changing text case
- How to use Templates
- Insert Charts
- Adding custom backgrounds
- How to use Tables
- How to auto fill data
- Adding special characters
- Changing border colour and theme
Before jumping into the MS Excel Intermediate course, one should have a good basic overview of the beginner Excel functions. Those with experience in Excel might feel as if they can skip the beginner course, but it is best to at least go through the course and review it before starting the intermediate curriculum.
Like the beginner course, the intermediate course is set up into short modules, and you can watch the module videos on any device that can connect to the internet. The curriculum in the intermediate course is designed for those who work with Excel in the workplace, and it is primarily for those who want to improve their skills with this program. There is a lot of useful information found in this course, and these skills are necessary for anyone who is going into investments, banking, or consulting, and will also be useful for administrators or for those who track or analyse a lot of data. If you are someone who is new to the workforce, you, too, will find that employers are looking for candidates with at least intermediate Excel skills.
The course teaches students how to use functions, including AVERAGEA, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS and ABS. You will also learn data validation information and students work through several modules, each of which are focused on a type of data validation, such as date, list, and time. The course deals with more information on specific functions, which include CHAR, CODE, MEDIAN, MODE, and ROUND. Additional information is given on how to manipulate these functions to meet your needs as an Excel user.
Other information in the MS Excel Intermediate Course includes how to change the text in Excel, i.e. changing text to all upper case or lower case. You will also learn how to change the background and add a custom image, how to use AutoFill and how to insert special characters.
Upon completion of this course, you will know about most of the functions that Excel has, and how to use this software at an intermediate level. Additionally, you will have the skills necessary to use Excel in most business environments. You will also be fully prepared to begin the MS Excel Advanced Course.
I would highly recommend
Fantastic course with great instruction and demonstrations.
I can already feel the benefit of this course whilst at work through improved efficiency and the handy tips I have picked up.
I have been using Excel for years now and I really regret not seeking some tuition sooner as I have learnt so many simple but useful things that can really make a difference straight away.
Very pleased with this provider and looking forward to the advanced level and possibly further courses in the future.
I would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to enhance their current knowledge or as a refresher.
