|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Monday and Friday, repeating until December 19, 2022


Microsoft Excel is the most useful, and most often misunderstood, program in the Office Suite. Many of us shy away because it seems so complex and overwhelming, but learning the tools that will help get your daily work done is simple . . . if you have the right instructor. ZenTek developed this course for the beginning, or infrequent, user of Microsoft Excel who wants to get a better handle on how to perform basic formatting, calculation, and data sorting functions in one of the most powerful programs on the market.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will be using the latest version of Microsoft Excel and students are encouraged to use same.

Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 48 consecutive hours. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
