The work of an analyst spans the use of multiple computer programs—Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Teams, just to name a few. While we may know how to perform individual tasks in each program, how do we bridge the gap between all of them to create one fluid system in which the data that you manipulate in Excel flows easily in to the report that you write in Word, the slides that you create in PowerPoint, and the virtual presentation you give in Teams? These training courses will build your confidence in integrating your analytical work across multiple platforms. You have learned your analytical skills on the job and through training such as Completed Staff Work, now take those skills to the next level with technological integration.
