TRANSITIONING EXCEL TRAINING TO
ZOOM ONLINE

N

o need to leave your office or home to attend Microsoft Excel courses.
On June 16, the BSIA and BCFCA held the Microsoft Excel Level 1
introductory course on Zoom with our excellent instructor, Edward
Baraghoush. His calm, patient manner and genuine appreciation for Microsoft
Excel shone through with the phrase, "Microsoft Excel does most of the work
for you," after demonstrating multiple ways data may be auto-filled into a
spreadsheet. We kept both classes small due to our new online learning platform. It was a good idea too, since the day
turned into a lesson in how to learn on Zoom as much as it was about Microsoft Excel. Lesson learned! BSIA and BCFCA
will host Zoom Set Up for Online Learning sessions for participants before each of the personalized Microsoft Excel
courses. We look forward to Edward's instruction on Aug. 11 for Level 1, Aug. 18 for Level 2 and Aug. 25 for Level 3.
