How to Excel - Part 1 & 2 (For Finance Staff)

Thu 10 Oct, Thu 17 Oct 2019

Description

This course will enable the participants to practice existing spreadsheet skills and develop more advanced skills within the context of UFS data.

The course runs over two sessions and participants will need to attend both of these sessions.

Target audience
