A good foundation in Excel is essential for this course. Participants should be familiar with absolute versus relative cell referencing, basic and conditional functions, formulae syntax, chart creation, as well as worksheet linking. Having attended an advanced course is advantageous.

A combination of lectures, explicit teaching, practical demonstrations and peer teaching is applied to 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 with each other and putting ideas into practice.
