Taking an ExcelCEO Course

Starting an Excel CEO course is really easy. Simply order the course (you can order it by clicking on the Buy It Now button above), and choose the course you want to take. The trick is knowing IF you should take the course. So here are a few things you can do to help you decide.

First, you can watch the Top Ten Reasons on why to take an ExcelCEO course video. You can also watch some of our Free Training Videos (located in the Free Test & Training link above), especially the video called Project in Chapter 7. That video shows some things you can do with Text Functions that very few people know about. If you watch that video and say to yourself, "Ho hum, I already know all of that. Nothing real exciting there.", then you probably don't need the course. BUT, if you're like the majority of people who say, ‘THAT is a really cool way to work in Excel’, or ‘That is WAY beyond my current Excel capability’, then you definitely need the course.

Next, you can watch some of the Excel Tips and Tricks videos. In those videos, I show you how to do some tricks that will really make your Excel life much easier. Each video lasts between three and five minutes, so it doesn't take long to watch each video and learn some cool tricks. Remember, these videos show just a sampling of the things you'll learn in the course. To learn EVERYTHING you need to know about Excel for your office job, you have to order the course.

Lastly, if after watching the videos you're still unsure about ordering a course, then try this: Click on the Free Test link above and take a Free Excel Test. If you can pass all of those tests with flying colors, then you probably don't need the course. I've designed the tests at the Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, and Comprehensive levels, just like the ExcelCEO course is set up. The table below shows the skillset taught in each level for various kinds of jobs.

Job Category Section Description
Administrative Assistant, Accounting Clerk, Office Manager, Bookkeeper, etc. Beginning This section teaches the things every office person needs to know – Excel basics, formatting, working with graphics and objects, flowcharts, sorting, filtering, subtotals, and printing.
Beginning Accounting or Beginning Financial Analyst Intermediate This section focuses on writing formulas. Writing formulas and using functions is the “lost art” of Excel, and knowing how to write serious formulas sets the experienced users apart from the novices.
Experienced Accountant, Senior Financial Analyst, or Consultant Advanced This section teaches a very advanced skill set, including PivotTables, data analysis, graphs and charts, macros, and working with the web.
Excel CEO (Chief Excel Officer) Master This section requires the student to complete a comprehensive project on their own. Upon completion of the project and the final exam, the student will have mastered the skills taught in the course.

After you click Submit to register for the ExcelCEO complete self-study course of your choice, the Order Confirmation screen should appear for successful registrations complete with your temporary password and instructions for beginning your training. You will use the email address you register with as your user ID and the password provided to login. Once logged in to your ExcelCEO student profile, you can download the practice files for your selected course. Review Questions and chapter exam checkpoints are also completed within the ExcelCEO student profile. You can also open a PDF copy of the course manual so you can get started on the course immediately after ordering the course!

In ExcelCEO complete self-study course training, we give you all the instruction you need to take you step-by-step, and almost keystroke-by-keystroke, to teach you every concept you need to know. There is a chapter exam at the end of each chapter, and it is necessary to pass each chapter exam before continuing on to the next chapter. This ensures you have learned the material before going on to more advanced topics. The capstone of the Excel course is the Chapter 18 Comprehensive Project. The Comprehesive Project is a project where I tell you what to do, but not how to do it. If you have completed all the projects throughout the course, the Comprehensive Project will be a workable challenge. If you can complete that last project, you will have fulfilled all the requirements to be an Excel Master. Then your name would appear in the Graduate Verification page to show your current or potential employer that you are an Excel Master.

If you are an employer interested in training a group of employees with the ExcelCEO system, or if you are a recruiter who needs a more extensive Excel testing program, send us an email. We have special programs just for you.
