All new Excel Pivot Table courses

Pivot table coursesIntroducing our first online training courses for Microsoft Excel. Over the years we have enjoyed teaching others about Excel and how to use the program more efficiently. So to continue that our first course focuses on a large part of Excel many users are either missing out on, or not using to its full potential – Pivot Tables.

Pivot Tables can seem quite daunting to new users due to a certain enigma I suppose around the name after all what is a Pivot Table and why are they so revered by those that use them.

Well a pivot table allows you to take large volumes of data and summarise it in meaningful ways, to really make sense of it. They will neatly present information and allow loads of customisation, along with great interactive drag and drop features.

Below gives the expected course structure. This of course may change and expand during the production of the course and will be updated intermittently so do check back for the latest.

Also if you think there is something missing from the course that you want to learn more on, please get in contact, emails can be sent to
