Microsoft Excel Certification Level 3
Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.
The Microsoft (MS) Excel Certification Level 3 Course is the most comprehensive of the three Excel courses presented here. If a team member has successfully completed the Level 1 and Level 2 courses, they will be fully prepared to start the Level 3 course.
Formulae or functions are what advanced users of Excel want from this tool. When you use formulae, not only can you see the data that you require for your work, you can also analyse it and get answers to complex questions.
Although anyone with some Excel knowledge can use formulae, such as SUM, a user who has the advanced Excel skills presented in this course will use other formulae, both alone and combined, such as MATCH, INDEX, DSUM and VLOOKUP.
In addition to knowing and using these formulae, an advanced user of Excel knows how to debug these formulae, how to audit them and how to choose the perfect formula for the particular task to be carried out.
