A good foundation in Excel is essential for this course. Participants should be familiar with the program and be able to write basic formulae. Having attended an essentials course is advantageous.

A combination of lectures, explicit teaching, practical demonstrations and peer teaching is applied for this course.

Experiential learning approach is adopted where the learners will be required to consider the experience as a learning process joined with critical reflection which further qualifies for this theory to be applied for this course because, at each segment, the learners are introduced to some form of experience after which they are asked to reflect on these experiences before sharing and putting ideas into practice.
