I have taken two Excel classes at NYIM and they were both fantastic. Garfield is a really skilled teacher and I learned so much! I plan on taking more classes when I can. Highly recommend these classes!
The class was amazing and the instructor was superb!
I had a fantastic experience in NYIM's Intermediate Excel class. Staff was very helpful in guiding me on which course to take based on my current skill set. Scheduling was easy as there were multiple days, times, and formats offered. I took the course over two weekday nights with Garfield. The facilities are clean and modern and offer complimentary water, coffee, and snacks. Garfield was an expert and made learning excel fun (which is not easy to do). I am able to apply what I learned directly to my work. At the end of the course, they offer a handout, online courses, and a copy of the workbook from the training which makes it an incredible value. Would highly recommend NYIM for any excel training, and will definitely be booking advanced excel courses with them in the near future.
Great instructors, they are patient! The materials are great, and you can retake the class once if you need a refresher! I highly recommend them!
I took NYIM Training's Intermediate Excel 2016 training this week, and I was impressed by the content and the trainer, Mike. The in-class exercises were all in one multi-tab spreadsheet which included step-by-step instructions for almost all of these, and you send the spreadsheet with any notes you made to yourself at the end of the day for future reference. No wasted time. Plenty of opportunity for questions. I have had other computer training elsewhere, but NYIM was unique in providing big-picture methods, tips, and shortcuts that were useful even for Excel tasks I already knew well. Plus, coffee and snacks to keep you going!
Thank you Michael for teaching this course!! Your knowledge of the material really help me to feel confident in taking what I've learned in the classroom and applying it to my newly assigned work projects. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting a better understanding of Excel.
Great Excel Training! Garfield does a great job at instilling actionable tips and shortcuts that can really be used ASAP! Would recommend to anyone looking enhance their skillset!
I retook this course. Garfield did not teach my first course but he taught my second course. He is a fantastic teacher. He is so clear and methodological. I highly recommend this class.
Just finished excel level 2 class. Went to review my excel skills before starting new job but ended up learning new tricks and functions also. The lecturer (Garfield) was very calm,kind, and informative. Thank you, Garfield!
The instructor Garfield was patient, informative and precise!
Overall great experience in taking the Intermediate Excel Class today! Content was well organized and had appropriate progression from easy to more complex examples. Garfield, our instructor, was very knowledgabe, patient, and thorough. He also had a great sense of humor and kept the class interesting, time really flew by! I will be back to take the Advanced class and also the VBA.
Had an amazing experience taking Excel for Business Level 2 at NYIM. The excel class helped me get back up to speed on a ton of fundamental techniques and short cuts, and the instructor was awesome. They even gave us videos to look at after we finished the class for some extra help on our own time. The actual location was convenient and comfortable, they gave us coffee tea and chcocolate- an overall great experience. Will definitely be going back for level 3.
Garfield was very knowledgeable and took his time working with my group. Whenever one of us didn't understand he was more than happy to slow down and figure out where we were confused. Definitely recommend this place!
I had a great experience in my level 2 Excel for business course. The instructor, Garfield, was very knowledgeable and patient with questions. He taught all the sections effectively and I really feel like I learned a lot from that one day session. NYIM has a really nice facility with modern computers (Macs too). The fact that they give you the chance to re-take a class free of charge within a year after the first one is amazing. I highly recommend their courses and will definitely be taking another class, or two!
I took the 1-day Intermediate Excel class in-person at the NYIM center. Garfield is an excellent instructor - engaging and very knowledgeable. It was a small group setting with ~10 people, and we had one-on-one if needed. The space is comfortable with coffee and tea, and computers very good. You are able to access an online version of the training after completing the in person. I would highly recommend this class!
I feel confident about VLOOKUPs now after attending this course.

Michael covered all of the content I expected, as well as content I didn't expect, but found valuable. Workshop was practical, and the nature of the problem sets were relevant to the business world, which I appreciated. Also really appreciate that you guys provide access to a digital course for our review, and a 6 month retake policy. That's very generous.
I've been taking classes here over the course of many years. Convenient location, class schedule availability, individual attention, reasonably priced. Great opportunity if you want a classroom setting.
This class was the perfect balance between learning new and reviewing some old topics. Garfield was very informative, but had a good sense of humor and real world examples.
I would recommend anyone to this class whoever is trying to learn excel, even though it is very critical but once you get the hold of it it is easy
Instructor really help you understand the functional process of excel. If you need to learn excel, this is place to take it!
Training here has changed my life. The instructor's attention to detail has allowed me to pinpoint and execute a plethora of topics. I am ready for everything ahead.
The Intermediate Microsoft Excel Class for Business was very informative and helpful. I can take the knowledge I obtain and apply it to my project immediately.
veyr informative, and the teacher made sure everyone was up to speed!
Anyone in financial services should take this course - very helpful!
Very good intermediate level class. Easy understanding of more complicated topics as VLOOKUP and IF STATEMENTS. The teacher is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.
NYIM Excel for Intermediate Business may be the reason I don't lose my job! It was efficient, to the point, covered all areas and more. I am so happy to have taken this course; most importantly, it provided a lifetime support that sets me up for success outside of the course.
The training I took was INCREDIBLY helpful. I took Intermediate Excel for Business online with Garfield as the instructor. The material covered in the course was uncannily relegated to my business on a day to day basis. I could not speak highly enough of Garfield as an instructor. He effectively explained all material by walking us through each step and using helpful analogies for us to have a stronger understanding of when you would use each tool. As an online course, he made sure everyone was engaged and was patient yet timely to reexplain something if people had questions. Garfield was kind enough to make himself available for me after the course as I was struggling with a challenging and important excel file I was working on. He let me share my screen with him and explain what I needed help with. His help with this file and the tools I gained from his instruction very likely are the reason I saved my job. Thank you NYIM and Garfield. If you are looking to increase your excel skills THIS is the company you should invest your time in.
Pretty seamless! I enjoyed it a lot more than expected. Highly recommended!
I've taken other computer instruction courses and I can't think of any of them that provided an answer key or videos for later viewing. Sooo helpful. Also, I loved the number of classes offered on a regular basis. This was a class I needed right away.
The course was very informative and the instructor was fantastic. Garfield is knowledgeable, professional and has a great balance of learning with humor.
Garfield was very professional and look forward to other classes conducted by him.
Worth every minute. It will make you more confident in your work ability.
I would recommend this class to anyone who uses Excel. It is one day of learning that will save you countless hours of work and teaching yourself through looking up stuff on Google!

Totally recommend to take it. I already know what I will be using starting tomorrow in my work.

Worksheet Management begins with Navigation techniques. To save time switching between keyboard and mouse, you can apply basic keyboard shortcuts to navigate around worksheets. You don’t need the mouse to highlight or move text from one cell to another. Paste Special, which illustrates how to copy data, formatting, and even formulas from one cell to another with a quick keyboard shortcut.
What if you put the first and last name of each client in one cell, but want to divide them into two cells? If you have 200 clients in one Excel spreadsheet it could take hours. Do you have to copy and paste text from one cell to another? Not with Intermediate Excel functions!
Split Text from one cell into multiple cells by using the ribbon and Join Text from multiple cells into a single cell with CONCATENATE and the ampersand “&”. You can also make calculations easier by using Named Ranges to classify an individual cell or a range of cells.
Keeping your data organized is essential to perform calculations and other data functions in Excel. Data Validation formats cells with a drop-down menu, thereby restricting the data that can be entered into a cell.
Sort & Filter will show you how to organize and search your data efficiently. Remove Duplicates demonstrates Excel’s ability to quickly examine a set of data and eliminate any duplicate rows.
Database Functions help you find data within the Excel worksheet quickly. For example, you may look up a product code, and return the name or the cost of that product. The VLOOKUP is easily considered the second most important skill in Excel and helps you find data within columns. HLOOKUP is used to find data within rows.
Logical functions help you find data that meets certain criteria. For example, with the IF statement you can design a true/false test and designate specific actions to perform for both true and false results. This powerful ability allows a single cell to offer two different outcomes. AND/OR functions build on the basic True/False property by implementing multiple logical tests to determine in a statement is true.
Pivot Tables are easily the most-sought-after skill in Excel. Pivot Tables are another way to analyze data in Excel through both consolidation and analysis. With the Grouping technique, you can consolidate row and column data into groups. You can also create Multiple Pivot Tables on the same worksheet page.
It’s hard to keep track of data within large datasets. The RANK.EQ, COUNTIFS, and SUMIFS provide additional information on data position and count within an Excel worksheet. Combo Charts are a unique visualization tool that allows Excel users to combine two charts.
At NYIM, helping professionals master Excel quickly and efficiently is our #1 priority. We offer a variety of benefits to ensure every student succeeds.
