bringing spreadsheet excellence to your desktop

Advanced Excel 2010, 2013 and 2016 Training Courses

DMW's Advanced Microsoft Excel courses focus on using Excel efficiently in creating, maintaining and enhancing complex spreadsheets.

There is much in Excel to engage power users and their ingenuity. Tap our experience in developing spreadsheet-based systems for business since 1988 to extend your expertise through the focus of DMW bespoke on-site courses.

If you are an intermediate-level user of Excel 2003 (or an earlier version than that) and intend an advanced course to coincide with your move to Excel 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016, then we can use a little time to go over the ribbon interface.
