Course Description

The WSQ Microsoft Excel Advanced course is structured around a part-to-whole sequencing method, unfolding through six progressively linked learning units. It kicks off, Advanced Formulas and Functions, where participants dive into complex business statistical formulas and functions.

This unit covers summarising and analysing both categorical and numerical data sets, including the use of nested conditions, and
lookup, text, date, and time functions.

Next, learners will leverage Excel’s built-in data analysis tools, Managing and Analysing Data Ranges, to discern trends and patterns. This focus on data analysis paves the way to next learning unit, Organising and Summarising Data, where common statistical software applications and techniques for data organisation and summary, including scenario reports and consolidation of data, are taught.

For the next learning unit, Working with PivotTables, it equips learners with the skills to create and customise PivotTables with slicers. Moving to the stage, Working with Web and External Data, learners apply their knowledge to query data from multiple sources, extracting relevant information for stakeholders using techniques from statistical software. On the last learning unit, Working with Macros, where participants learn to automate repetitive tasks and data management through macro recording.

This structured approach ensures that by the end of the course, participants are adept at utilising advanced statistical formulas and functions, summarising and analysing data, creating PivotTables, working with external data sources, and automating tasks with macros, equipping them with the comprehensive skills needed for effective data management and data analysis. 

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Use a series of business statistical formulas and functions for summarising and analysing categorical or numerical data sets, including utilising nested conditions, lookup, text, date, and time functions.
  • Harness the skills needed to use Excel’s built-in data analysis tools to analyse data sets and identify trends and patterns.
  • Distinguish between Excel’s built-in statistical functions and tools to conduct statistical analyses, taking into account the needs and objectives of stakeholders.
  • Utilise PivotTable to understand and analyse the core data structures that include summarising datasets for the presentation of actionable business insights to stakeholders.
  • Adopt relevant statistical software techniques to perform data queries across multiple sources to extract pertinent data for stakeholders.
