1-to-1 instructor-led training and self-paced learning
Remote learning and in-person training
Training can be delivered remotely using Microsoft Teams. We can also provide in-person training sessions at our Aberdeen Training Centre.
You'll need to have some basic Microsoft Office skills, eg be able to open a file and make basic changes. To complete the course online you’ll need a Windows PC installed with Microsoft 365 (if you don’t have Microsoft 365 you can download a free trial for 1 month).
You’ll receive a printed training manual if you attend a face-to-face course. For remote courses we’ll send you a PDF manual.
The instructor-led training lasts 4 hours - training sessions can be delivered in 1 day or over a period of time, eg 1 hour a week for 4 weeks.
You'll get 12 months access to the self-paced online course. You’ll be able to watch short bite-sized video lessons and download practice files.
If you complete the self-paced online course, you’ll then have the option to work through a practical assessment – pass the assessment and you’ll obtain the EC-PC Microsoft Excel Basic User Certificate.
