  Unique Excel Templates & Practical Excel Training

The Excel Skills website offers a unique range of Excel based accounting & personal finance templates and a comprehensive series of practical Excel video tutorials. All our solutions are designed from years of practical experience with Microsoft Excel and it is this unique practical approach which sets us apart from other Microsoft Excel resources.

Our unique, practical Excel templates produce results that are more comparable to software solutions than regular Excel templates. Most of the free and even paid for Excel based solutions that are available today only contain limited functionality but our templates produce complex automated reports based on limited user input. You also don't need advanced Excel skills in order to use our templates - our templates only require basic user input and include comprehensive step-by-step instructions.

Our comprehensive series of Excel video tutorials have also been designed with a practical approach. We identified the need for an easily accessible Excel training resource which can be used for course based Excel training and as a resource for obtaining guidance on specific Excel features while you are working in Excel. Aside from the fact that we cover features and techniques that do not form part of other Excel courses, it is our dual purpose approach that sets our Excel training apart from other Excel training resources.

Our Unique & Innovative Excel Templates

We specialize in developing innovative Excel templates that contain unique functionality and produce results that cannot be found in other similar Excel templates. We refer to our templates as "intelligent solutions" because only limited user input is required in order to produce results that can only be replicated by advanced Excel users who are experts in the field of business information management. We guarantee that you will not find templates that can match the functionality that is included in our templates anywhere else.

The Templates section of our website currently includes solutions that enable users to perform accounting in Excel, compile Excel based financial statements, perform monthly & annual cash flow projections, calculate business valuations, compile a detailed fixed assets register with automated depreciation calculations, perform loan calculations, calculate product costings, produce loan account statements, control inventory, compile tax invoices, produce customer account statements, compile a cashbook, perform bank reconciliations, control petty cash, calculate sales commission and a lot more.

Our Practical Excel Training Tutorials

We don't distinguish between basic & advanced Excel course content because we believe that novice users should not be limited in terms of the growth that they can achieve in their Excel skills during any pre-defined course subscription period. We also believe that due to the practical nature of our tutorials, advanced Excel users will also benefit from our tutorials on basic Excel features because these tutorials cover techniques that can be used to improve the efficiency of any Excel user regardless of their current skill level. Our Excel training is a lot more comprehensive than other Excel courses and we also include practical guidance on Excel features & techniques that do not form part of any other Excel course!

We believe that the convenient and practical nature of our online Excel tutorials enable users to develop Excel skills that are more durable than any once-off classroom type training course can possibly provide. Our Excel tutorials include a lot of content that is not even covered in standard Excel courses; the design of the tutorials ensures that users can study the tutorials at their own pace & convenience and the 365 day membership period ensures that users can easily refer back to a tutorial if they experience any difficulty with a particular Excel concept or feature. The categorized layout of the tutorials also enables users to view tutorials on specific Excel features while they are working in Excel. Our practical Excel training approach is more comprehensive, convenient and also more affordable than any classroom type training course and results in a superior, more durable Excel skill level.

Any online Excel training resource can only be effective if the medium of training is practical. This means that the training videos which form the basis of most online training resources needs to be small in terms of file size and above all quick to download. All our Excel tutorials are based on unique shockwave videos which are relatively small in size, quick to download and easy to navigate through. In fact, our unique online video platform enables us to include a lot more content in each training video because the video files are 90% smaller than standard video files. We are therefore able to develop our comprehensive Excel training tutorials without increasing the video file size to such an extent that online training becomes impractical. The average video file size of our tutorials is less than 0.5MB and the average time that it takes to download a video is less than 30 seconds. Some of our tutorials are more than 10 minutes in length and the file size is still less than 1MB. If a similar video is developed on a standard video platform, the file size would be at least 10MB and would probably take more than 10 minutes to download!

Our practical Excel exercises are also much more than just exercises! We design our exercises in such a way that they provide the user with a mapping of the Excel features that can be used in order to complete the appropriate task in the most efficient manner possible. Each step in each exercise is referenced to the appropriate tutorial that needs to be studied in order to be able to complete the step. We also provide separate Excel 2013, Excel 2010, Excel 2007 and Excel 2003 online training certificates which can be used to verify the training time that has been spent on the tutorials for the appropriate version of Excel.
