Course Description

This four-day (4 hours per session) stand-alone course assumes a very basic familiarity with Excel, and provides the knowledge and confidence to start using Excel effectively to produce results for you. It shows you what results you can expect, how to save time by using the most suitable techniques and by planning your spreadsheet.

The course emphasizes the thinking and design process as much as the learning of techniques so that your spreadsheets will take less time to develop and be more reliable and produce more useful information.

This course is also about answering the questions you did not know to ask, teaching you how to think in the way Excel thinks and establishing good disciplines for working in Excel.

Successful candidates will receive a certificate from Johannesburg School of Finance which will also confirm the completion of one module of the School’s Certificate Programme in Practical Finance (CPPF). The CPPF is a unique qualification comprising a series of four-day modules in practical financial management designed to develop excellent skills for effective business decisions.
