New training course by LGC: using Excel spreadsheets for data analysis

20 Oct 2014

LGC is offering a brand new training course covering the main Excel functions commonly applied to data analysis. This is a useful course for anyone who is new to Excel or looking to fill gaps in their knowledge. The course focuses on the practical application of Excel and will help you to present and analyse your data in a clear and efficient way.
Many laboratories routinely generate large amounts of data and collating, analysing, summarising and communicating experimental results is increasingly a concern for analytical scientists. Excel is routinely used in laboratories to handle and analyse data due to its availability to most computer users, ease of use, and potential to handle large data sets. However, many analysts are self-taught and have insufficient knowledge of the software to use it to its full potential.
LGC’s course, Using Excel spreadsheets for data analysis in testing laboratories, includes workshops run on laptops, which facilitate the application of the course theory. It will take place on 5 November at our headquarters in Teddington, South West London, conveniently located near Heathrow.
LGC also runs courses covering statistical tools that can be used to analyse and summarise analytical data. There are still some spaces in the next Further statistical tools for analytical scientists, which will run on 13 November.
