I am an electrical engineer and an IT professional. I hold a masters degree Computer Networks security and Programming. I am also a Microsoft Certified Personal (MCP) in a number of courses including Microsoft Excel at the Expert Level. I also hold the ECDL as an examiner.
I have worked as a Data Analyst for more than five years and in the process have developed all kinds spreadsheets / reports such as dashboards, using Excel as a backend to develop financial applications etc.
I have a solid understanding of mathematics and that has allowed me to be able to make the seemingly difficult concepts in Excel to be quite understandable to many of my colleagues that i have worked with over the years.
My experience in real life situations using microsoft Excel is certainly a key skill that my students will benefit from when they take my course.
