The following requirements are needed by participants booking onto the course:
- A basic knowledge of Excel
- Use of a laptop during lectures with minimum Excel 2013 installed
- A Google account
The course is open to both accountants and non-accountants. Statistical analysis consistent with first year of a relevant business degree or equivalent would be desirable but not mandatory. All the statistical concepts will be explained on the Learning Management System, Canvas through instructional videos.
For those opting for the live streaming option, we would recommend doing the lectures somewhere that you will have access to two screens so that you can watch the class and also do the practical on screen work.
The first session on 25 September will be a compulsory half day workshop for all participants prior to the lectures starting. This is to ensure all participants are set up and time is not spent in class setting up.
