For Excel BI courses, it must be Excel 2016 Pro Plus or any Office 365 plan that includes the installation of MS Office packages. This is a necessary prerequisite, because without the appropriate version of Excel, you will not be able to do the exercises, and therefore it is pointless to apply for the course.

The programs are intensive, and the trainings are held by a certified lecturer (MOS Excel Expert).
