The first of our Microsoft Excel courses is perfect for those individuals who are new to this program or who need to brush up their basic skills with more practice. Completion of this course also offers the ideal foundation before moving on to the more advanced units. It offers simple and clear definitions of some of the key terminology within Excel, such as cells, rows and columns and how to input, edit and delete data. There is also an introductory section on how to create and work with basic formulas and pivot tables, which will be covered in more detail in the Intermediate and Advanced units.
The course also covers how to work with worksheets and tabs in Excel, such as renaming, deleting, hiding, moving and copying.
Microsoft Excel Intermediate Certificate
This unit builds upon the progress that you have made in the Beginners unit to look at more complex functions within Excel such as averages, medians, modes and roundings and the best methods to manipulate such functions to help you to get the information that you want out of the program.
In addition, formatting methods within Excel are covered, including changing texts and backgrounds, adding special characters and using AutoFill options.
Microsoft Excel Advanced Certificate
This unit is the most comprehensive and detailed of the three and aims to prepare you for jobs or situations where you require a thorough and proficient level of Excel. This unit really gets into the detail of the analytical functions of Excel, including more complex formulas such as MATCH, INDEX and VLOOKUP and, crucially, how to decide upon the most appropriate formula for a particular calculation. After completing this unit, you should feel confident to use and manipulate the largest range of Excel formulas and be able to use Excel to its full functionality.

The ability to use Microsoft Word effectively is a crucial requirement of many office based roles. This course on Microsoft Word is an all-encompassing source of information which offers you the opportunity to enhance your skills in this widely-used program.

All my needs were met with New Skills Academy
Loved this course, easy to complete and great help with online support. Answered any questions that I had, couldn’t ask for more from a course. I have been looking for a course to complete for a while and I am glad that I found this one.
All my needs were met with New Skills Academy. It’s user friendly and very easy to navigate through the modules. Have now booked another course to complete with New Skills Academy.
Will be looking to book more from the satisfaction I have had from completing my first course. Also got an NUS Extra card from New Skills Academy which makes it even better.
