Important notes from the Trainer re these Online courses:
Participants need to ensure that they have Microsoft Excel working on their computer and that their sound is working.
They MUST know how to switch between applications during the course, i.e. They will have a folder open with work files, they will also have ZOOM open, and they will have Excel open. On the day, they will watch the tutor perform the task on ZOOM. They will then switch to the folder which contains the work files and they will open the file. The file will open in Excel where they will perform the task themselves. they must know how to open, save and close work files before attending the course. They therefore need to be able to switch between all three areas frequently. If they are unable to do this they should consider not attending an online course as the tutor will be unable to assist them from a distance – a classroom based course would be more beneficial in this circumstance.
The trainer will send a link to the work files needed for the course.
You will need to download these work files before the course and place them in a folder on your desktop.
All participants must have a copy of Microsoft Excel on their laptop or PC. Ideally the version of Excel will be from Office 365 or Office 203 or Office 2016.
