Have you always wanted to increase your Microsoft Excel skills? Excel-erate is the perfect program to learn the fundamentals of Excel without having to go at it alone. Excel-erate is a BRAND NEW program to Do Space and was created to develop Microsoft Excel talent among those changing careers and re-entering the workforce. One study by Capital One and Burning Glass Technologies revealed that not only are such skills required for the vast majority (82%) of middle-skill positions, proficiency in using productivity software also provides a pathway to high paying jobs for workers without a college degree.
Excel-erate will consist of five weekly meetings, held via Zoom. These meetings are required and will take place Tuesday afternoon from 11:00am to 1:00pm. The first session will begin on Tuesday, February 23rd and will wrap up on Tuesday, March 23rd.
This bootcamp will introduce the basic features of Microsoft Excel and spreadsheet concepts to design and create accurate, professional worksheets for use in business, industry, and academic environments. After completion of the bootcamp, participants will have acquired Excel skills ranging from beginner to advanced levels. These skills include, but are not limited to, execution of common functions, ability to maintain a large data set in a list or a table, and an introduction into dynamic formulas and reports such as VLOOKUP and PivotTable.
Applications will open on Monday, January 4th and will close on Friday, February 5th.
