Course Description

If you’d like to discover features and techniques you can use to speed up your work in Excel, this is the perfect course for you! In his jam-packed session, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, explains a variety of time-saving features and shares helpful tips, such as how to filter data faster, streamline repetitive tasks, create keyboard shortcuts, access folders, and workbooks easily, and more.

You’ll discover even more ways to save time and effort in Excel when you take this online continuing education course. In Speed Tips, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, demonstrates shortcuts that allow you to streamline repetitive tasks and redundant data entry, embed lists you use frequently, transform filtering tasks, and more. In addition, David explains the benefits associated with Excel’s Text Box feature, the Personal Macro Workbook, and the Quick Analysis feature.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice in this online CPE course: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Office 365 version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Office 365 is a subscription-based product that provides new-feature updates as often as monthly. Conversely, the perpetual licensed versions of Excel have feature sets that don’t change. Perpetual licensed versions have year numbers, such as Excel 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.

The presenter was skilled in the subject matter. I learned a lot in the webinar. However, I will have to go through this material again and again until I master the tips taught by him and get that bit faster, but then again, that is on me. It is great content and precise on the matters. Thank you myCPE and David.
