Coastal Bend College Offering Two Online Continuing Education Courses Starting January 12

Coastal Bend College’s Department of Continuing Education is pleased to announce the start of 2 online courses starting Wednesday, January 12 through a partnership with Ed2Go. The two online courses include Introduction to Microsoft Excel, and Effective Business Writing.

Each course is online, 6 weeks long and has the ability to be completed anywhere.

Excel, Microsoft’s powerful spreadsheet software, is the most widely-used program to handle this task. In fact, most workplaces require that new employees have a basic level of understanding of Microsoft Excel.

Through hands-on lessons, you will learn numerous shortcuts to quickly and efficiently set up worksheets. You will also learn how to use the function wizard to calculate statistics, future values, and more. In addition, you will get tips on sorting and analyzing data, creating three-dimensional workbooks, and automating frequently-repeated tasks with macros and buttons.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a clerical worker, an engineer, or an executive. If you communicate with others in writing, you will benefit from this course to help you identify and eliminate problem areas. By the end of this course, you’ll know the secret to developing powerful written documents that immediately draw readers in and keep them motivated to continue until your very last, well-chosen word.
