Basic Excel course - Introduction to electronic spreadsheets

Previous editions of the short Excel course were very popular and, to satisfy the requests for another course, the Cremona Campus offered "Basic Excel Course - Introduction to an electronic spreadsheet" again.

The Basic Course was held on Saturday 25 May and Saturday 1 June 2013 from 9.00 to 13.00.

The courses were open to all, especially to students, professional workers, secretaries, office workers and all the people who are interested in learning the basics of Excel or who are already familiar with it and want to learn more about what it can offer.

  • course quality score: 4.38 out of 5
