Learn the basic concepts, tools and functions to create reliable and efficient Excel files


Our first Excel class is the gateway to learning this exceptional software in a professional manner. Once mastered, Excel becomes a creative, fun and remarkably efficient program. A user who has received structured training from an Improov instructor can easily see their efficiency more than double. This is why it is one of the most profitable software programs with which to be taught.

This class is not only for Excel beginners. It also allows users with a little more experience to get up to speed and to have all the necessary bases and knowledge to pursue their development. Through learning a carefully selected set of concepts and tools, the participant will gain the confidence and efficiency to create professional Excel files.

The training is offered as a hybrid program that combines learning with videos and workshops offered by an online instructor. The videos emphasize practice with carefully selected exercise files. They allow participants to learn at their own pace. The workshops are unique, structured and motivating. They allow participants to integrate their knowledge into one stimulating project, guided by an expert who can also answer questions.

Our free 20-minute assessment lets us see exactly at which level the future participant is, and also in which modules the participant’s weaknesses lie. For groups, we provide an evaluation report that highlights strengths and weaknesses in the various themes of our Excel development plan, allowing you to choose the most appropriate plan of instruction.
