Excel Training: Summer 2021

Microsoft Excel Training.

February 25, 2021

Granite State College is proud to offer online training focused on Microsoft Excel.

Microsoft Excel is an important tool that is used in both personal and professional settings. From changing the serving size of a favorite recipe or personal budgeting to evaluating programs, data analysis, and communications, Excel is a powerful, efficient, and accurate software that can help you do a variety of personal and professional activities. You will have a chance to bring your own project to practice with or select from ready-made projects to learn basic Excel skills.

This series includes two sessions: Excel Basics (July 6 – July 23, 2021) and Excel Intermediate (August 2 – August 20, 2021). These 100% online workshops require just 15-20 hours of your time per course and take place over the span of 2.5 weeks. With the support of an experienced instructor, participants will have access to:

  • Free Office 365 (including Microsoft Excel) and other open educational resources
  • Supportive assignment feedback
  • Optional drop-in sessions with your instructor via Zoom
  • A digital badge showing your successful completion of your Excel training that you can share and display on LinkedIn, resume, and other related materials

Participants who are degree-seeking students at Granite State College and successfully complete both the Excel Basics and Intermediate sessions will qualify for two undergraduate credits from Granite State College. Normal credit evaluation procedures will apply.  Financial aid is not available.
