The trainer has official practice files that are officially used for the Data Analysis and Visualization with the Microsoft Excel exam. We will use these files to practice on during the course.

The session is completely interactive. The trainer will ask the participants to open every practice file at a time and then we will work on it together. The trainer will be sharing his screen, and after every key press, the trainer waits a little bit to make sure that the trainees are following up with the instructor and they are pressing the same buttons. Moreover, the trainer keeps on asking the participants questions to make sure that they really understood the material.

At the beginning of the course, the trainer asks the trainees to solve a set of problems/challenges in order to evaluate their level. Based on the number of correct answers, the trainer chooses the appropriate level for the participants.
