Pinewood Schools / PWC Training is the only training center with a testing center and live instructors in the classroom in the Atlanta Metro Area. That is what separates us from our competitors that either do not have testing available or an instructor in the room for training.

This in-depth course will equip students with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the most relevant features and uses of Excel 2016. Students will be engaged with hands on learning as they apply learned concepts to create relevant work such as brochures, resume tables, newsletters & more.

This textbook carries the ExamReadyTM certification which certifies that it has been tested by ProCert Labs to validate that it covers all course objectives included in the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification exam.
