Improve Your Excel Skills with this Free Excel Training

How are your Excel skills? Average? Enough to get by? Have you ever thought that with just a little training, you may be able to get your work done faster, and maybe reduce the errors that occasionally sneak in?

One of the best ways to learn more about Excel, discover shortcuts and time savers is through webcast training where the instructor demonstrates directly in Excel. You see the click-by-click steps needed to perform each function. You can follow along and ask questions. And, if you didn’t fully absorb the information, you can view the recording of the presentation again for additional review.

In response to the popularity of Excel training, CPE Link has built up its Excel curriculum to include over 20 specialized topics geared towards CPAs. Some of the more popular presentations are: Mastering Excel Pivot Tables, Tips and Tricks for Creating Charts, Mastering Advanced Excel Formulas, Automating Excel-Based Financial Statements, and Introduction to Macros. In these sessions, attendees learn practical solutions to everyday challenges.

If you haven’t experienced Excel training in the webcast format, I invite you to try before you buy! Take a peek at this FREE Excel Speed Tips on-demand webcast (a $49 value). In this 3 CPE credit self-study course Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA shares the features and shortcuts that can make you an Excel power user.  Offer expires May 31.
