As most of you have heard by now, I am starting a fantastic new Excel training program called Excel Hero Academy
. So far there has been a tremendous amount of interest in learning to craft Excel projects the way I do. Thank you for this. It truly is an amazing feeling that so many of you would have such strongly positive feedback. I am still working on the details and hope to have much more concrete information to you in the next week or so. Over a hundred people have already filled-in the questionnaire giving me valuable information on what to cover in the course. Please take a moment to add your input!
I'll immediately send you the quick survey.
This will be a one-of-a-kind training program with lots of interactivity and direct access to me. I'm really looking forward to it. My goal is to start the 12-week course on October 11, 2010.
Excel Hero Academy will be advanced training, but as long as you are intelligent, you need not be an advanced user already to benefit tremendously from the course. Completing the course will make you advanced. Scratch that. It will make you much more; it will make you an Excel Hero.

If you are just learning Excel for the first time - a beginner - you should also seriously consider Chandoo's Excel School
. A few months back I had the honor of reviewing his online school, just before he started the 2nd round of students.
I can tell you categorically that he has done a fine job. His online school is first rate, as are the downloadable workbooks and videos. It is obvious from the moment you first log on that Chandoo has put a lot of effort into designing the curriculum and developing the lessons, with the business user in mind.
The motto of Chandoo's blog is Become Awesome in Excel
. Excel School
will definitely help get you there.
Every lesson can be viewed online or downloaded, and the class includes over 1,200 minutes of video instruction hosted by Chandoo himself who not only is the creative force behind the famous Chandoo.org Excel blog, but he is also a Microsoft Excel MVP.
Working your way through this pertinent material will leave you with a solid, well-rounded Excel foundation. Just look at the lesson plan:
For Excel School 3
, Chandoo has added several nice features and bonuses, including a live webinar.
Chandoo's Excel School
comes with over 40 crystal clear example workbooks and access to the Online Classroom which is an extremely valuable resource where class-members share ideas, ask questions, and discuss lessons.
The last class had over 200 students enrolled, so the debate was very stimulating. This will be the third class and I have a feeling it will be even more of a success.
