Course Outline

Microsoft Excel is the world’s most popular spreadsheet program; learning how to use the software with Pitman Training shows that you’ve taken one of the best Excel courses available.

Our Microsoft Excel course is very flexible – you will have the freedom to take the Excel lessons at your own pace, based at one of our handy town or city centre locations, with support on hand should you need it. And a workbook will be yours to take away as a handy reference guide.

This Excel course comprises several lessons, which provide a detailed but manageable study programme, so you can be confident about your new skills in the workplace.

Having completed your Microsoft Excel course, you could add Microsoft PowerPoint and Word to your list of achievements. Or you could give your career a serious boost by completing one of our highly respected diplomas, for example our Foundation in Book-keeping Diploma or our Microsoft Office Diploma, which could help maximise your career potential.


Microsoft Excel is one of the most commonly used spreadsheet programmes, whether used in businesses for customer data and accounting purposes or at home for household budgets.
