About the session

Becoming Excel-certified is seen by some as a rite of passage for going from a mediocre, unproven user to a trustworthy, credible expert. It can give a competitive advantage in the job market and accelerate career advancement.

However, critics would argue certifications are no substitute for practical experience, as they tend to focus more on theoretical knowledge. There are also time and cost implications, as well as the potential need for continuous maintenance.

In this session, the panellists weigh up the pros and cons of being Excel-certified and whether it’s worth investing the time to do so.
