Who Should Attend This Course?

This course is perfect for those who feel comfortable with topics covered in our Advanced Excel for Business course and want to elevate their skills and tackle difficult exercises in Excel. As opposed to standard courses where the desired function or formula is known beforehand, in this courses attendees (with instruction and guidance from an Excel expert) will have to devise the proper set of functions needed to solve the exercise. 

Course Objective: The goal of this course is not to simply provide attendees with complicated formulas for future reference, but to teach users how Excel's functions can be used to solve complex problems.
