Microsoft Excel 2016 Level 2

Course Overview

This 1-day instructor-led course builds on the basic concepts and skills of our Level 1 course to provide more advanced tools for analysis and presentation of complex, realistic data in Microsoft Excel 2016: how to manage complex workbooks, build more complex functions, use data analysis tools, make an impact with a powerful chart and presentation features, and collaborate with other users. The three levels of our Excel 2016 courses map to the objectives of the Microsoft Office Specialist and Expert exams for Excel 2016.

Students will benefit most from this course if they want to use Excel 2016 to perform real-world tasks such as rearranging and presenting complex data. If they intend to take a Microsoft Office Specialist or Expert exam for Excel, this course will continue their preparation, but they will need to continue to the Level 3 course, particularly to prepare for the Expert exam.

After you completion of this course, students will know:​

  • How to manage workbooks and customize the Excel environment.​
  • How to use named ranges in formulas.​
