Masterclass Courses are courses that we organize and invite through advertising, people from various organizations at a central training venue. Please visit our upcoming courses calendar to book for the next course.
In-house courses are courses that you can organize as an organization and our facilitators will come to your chosen venue for training. We require a minimum group size of 5 participants to constitute a class.
In a masterclass course, we take care of venue costs as well as lunches and refreshments that is why the fees are higher than those of an in-house course. The organization calling for an in-house course will take care of the costs of the venue, lunches and refreshments.
Our courses are three: The Excel Fundamentals Course, The Advanced Excel Modelling (Data Analysis & Reporting) Course and the Advanced Excel Modelling (Budgeting & Forecasting) Course.
The Excel Fundamentals Course covers the key Excel concepts which gives the Excel user a firm foundation about the structure and functionality of Microsoft Excel. It should be noted that this is not necessarily basic Excel but an introduction to financial modelling in Excel.
The Data Analysis Course covers the key Data Management techniques and Key Excel Formulas and Functions and gives participants an opportunity to learn how to put these techniques together to develop a robust and dynamic Data Analysis and Reporting model according to International Best Practice Standardsof financial modelling.
The Budgeting & Forecasting Course explores more Advanced Excel functions and apply them in the development and linking of various departmental and functional budgets to produce a budgeted income statement, budgeted balance sheet and a budgeted cash flow statement. It takes participants further by showing them how to derive value from a planning model through use of various techniques such as goal seeking, what-if analysis, scenario management and optimization.
We recommend that you take the courses in their order: Fundamentals (Level 1), Data analysis (Level 2) and the budgeting course (Level 3) as this will give you a solid understanding of Excel modelling.
The Excel Fundamentals Course is a 2-Day Course while both the Data Analysis and the Budgeting Masterclass Courses are 3-day courses. However if taken on an in-house basis, the client can choose between a 3-day, 4-day or 5-day course to allow for more practice.
Contact us if you want a customized course, e.g the Advanced Excel Formulas course or a much more basic or beginner course and we will be glad to organize one for your group.

We know that many professionals who use Microsoft Excel in accomplishing their job tasks have never been formally trained in the use of Excel. The little they know is self-taught on the job, what about you?
We are also aware that most users of Excel only use less than 5% of what Excel has to offer, is this your story?
We know that many users of Excel struggle to use it effectively, especially in the area of formulas resulting in work that can be accomplished in minutes being done in hours or days, maybe this is not your case, is it?
Most Excel users especially Accountants, spend most of their time in the evenings, weekends and holidays at work because of the nightmares they face with Excel, do you confirm this?
We know that most decision-making in many companies lacks the use of what-if analysis and other modelling tools as a result of the absence of dynamic and robust models, maybe not where you work, right?
The above statements are the reason why we offer solutions to our clients in two forms: Advanced Excel Training as well as Financial Modelling Systems developed using the world’s leading financial modelling software, Quantrix Modeler and Quantrix Qloud.
IF ANY OF THE ABOVE STATEMENTS IS TRUE TO YOU, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONSIDER BOOKING FOR ONE OF OUR COURSES TODAY OR CALL US FOR A DEMO OF ONE OF OUR FINANCIAL MODELLING SYSTEMS.
[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Fees" tab_id="fees"][vc_column_text]
Course fees depend on the level of the course (Excel Fundamentals is the first level, Data Analysis & Reporting is the second level, while the budgeting and forecasting course is the third level). The fees also depend on whether it is an in-house course (whereby costs of refreshments, venue and lunches are borne the client) or masterclass course (where we bear all the costs of the workshop). In an in-house arrangement where the client has a choice between a 3-day, 4-day or 5-day workshop, the number of days as well as the number of participants (we apply group discounts) will also determine the fees.
The fees are per person or per participant but group discounts can be given as the group size increases. Please send us an inquiry indicating if you want a masterclass or inhouse course and the number of participants you intend to attend and we will send you a customized quotation.
