Accelerated Microsoft Excel Certificate Program

As big data continues its explosive growth — and demand for professionals with strong Excel skills continues to soar — improving your proficiency is more important than ever.

If you’re like most Excel users, you’ve been building skills for years — on the job, largely through trial and error. As a result, you may have only been able to tap a fraction of Excel’s capabilities.

That’s why we designed our Accelerated Microsoft® Excel® Certificate Program. This focused, instructor-led training will advance your knowledge of Excel as you learn how to use the full range of its powerful features.

Brought to you by SkillPath in partnership with Graceland University, this ALL-NEW virtual certificate program is a series of 5 LIVE, online, instructor-led sessions that immerse you in the best practices for designing modern, professional workbooks that manage, calculate, communicate and analyze your data. (The program is for users with intermediate knowledge of Excel and goes beyond basic introductory material.)
