The excel-based courses helped me gain a better qualitative understanding of the everyday functions/formulas one uses, such as data validation, what-if analyses, and completing repetitive tasks via F4, to name a few. I am a more informed excel user because of my experience with CFI.
CFI helped me to understand the overall finance industry and also to improve my technical skills. The courses definitely enhanced my knowledge in building financial models and I sometimes visit again to refresh my memory.
Our goal was to find online training that fit the level of expertise our associates already had and offered lessons for advanced growth. The demo CFI provided gave us confidence in their courses and allowed us to create a tailored solution specific to our needs.
Two months after my certification I created a metric package for my department using many of the CFI templates that I was able to obtain through my studies. The metric package was well received and got many compliments on the format and content.
