On the other hand, a beginner’s level in Excel (basic functions such as Vlookup, Sum, If …) is useful to rebuild the dashboards quickly (Don’t worry, I record my screen step by step).

It is also important to have a stable Internet connection and Microsoft Excel installed on your computer.

Each module is broken down into small episodes of less than 10 minutes to allow you to progress quickly and at your own pace. There are 147 in total with plenty of quizzes and exercises to practice and validate your skills.

In addition, you have access to a hundred videos (15 hours) where I share the best questions and answers from my members. This is an exclusive toolkit for my members only (See the “Consultations with Edouard” section)
