POWELL, Wyoming — Short classes in Excel, Word and QuickBooks start soon in Powell and Cody through the Northwest College Centers for Training and Development.

Identical trainings in Excel and Word are offered in two formats: as all-day trainings in Powell, or separated into two-evening sessions in Cody.

Those wanting to learn the basics of Microsoft’s Excel 2013 can attend a one-day class Thursday, Oct. 1, in Powell, or two evening sessions Thursday, Nov. 5 and 12, in Cody.

Both classes focus on giving participants the skills needed to design and organize the best possible worksheet before entering any numbers.

Professional Teaching Standards Board (PTSB) credits and Continuing Education Units (CEU) are available.

Excel intermediate training is offered in a one-day class Tuesday, Nov. 17, in Powell, and in two evening sessions Monday and Thursday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 3, in Cody.

This training delves into managing multiple worksheets and workbooks, advanced formatting, lists and tables and a large variety of other advanced skills. The $99 cost includes a manual. CEU and PTSB credit is available.

The basics of Word 2013 are covered in two evening sessions, Thursday, Oct. 15 and 22, in Cody, or in a one-day class Tuesday, Dec. 8, in Powell.  Topics range from the basics of entering text to saving and editing documents and inserting graphics.
