How the Certification Works
This course, like many of the CFI courses, helped cut down my time on having to re-adjust models to cater for varying time periods. If you want to create really dynamic models, this is the course for you! Make sure you do the core courses first though.
What a great course. A must for anyone looking to have an advanced level in Excel.
I consider myself an experienced Excel user, but this course covers advanced techniques by combining functions you wouldn't even imagine can fit together. Worth it for the dynamic charts alone!
Fantastic Course. Thank you so much Tim Vipond and CFI Team
