What comes to mind when you hear the word “PivotTable?” For many Excel users, the word conjurs up feelings of dread—they think that a PivotTable is one of those tools best left some mythical (or mystical) Excel expert, but certainly not for the everyday user. For such folks, the PivotTable remains the most esoteric of Excel’s analysis tools.
It doesn’t need to be that way!
PivotTables aren’t as scary as some people assume; they are really quite useful and powerful. PivotTables have been available in Excel for years, yet relatively few people know how to use them to analyze their data. This is a pity, as PivotTables can allow you to see your data in new and exciting ways.
I’ve spent a good deal of time over the years demonstrating Excel and teaching others how to use it. Whenever I get to the subject of PivotTables, and I show how easy they really are to use, the usual reaction is “Wow! That is so cool!” Why? Because PivotTables are very powerful.
That’s the reason I put together my PivotTables for the Faint of Heart online course. This course provides all the information you need in order to put PivotTables to work for you, right away. Before you know it, you can start digging new gold from your existing data, without driving yourself crazy. You’ll finally discover how powerful PivotTables are and how easily you can make them a part of what you do with Excel.
What the Course Covers
The PivotTables for the Faint of Heart course is packed with great information designed to help you develop the skills you need to take your data analysis work to the next level. The course is divided into sections, each covering a major topic area. Each section is further divided into a series of lessons crafted to help you expand your understanding.
There is a tremendous amount of information in this course, designed to take you from the level of an absolute beginner, completely unfamiliar with PivotTables, all the way to an advanced level. Step by step, lesson by lesson, you’ll gain the skills and confidence you need to put PivotTables to work with your data. The course is designed to help you progress and succeed at your own pace.
Here’s a quick rundown of the sections in the course:
- Section 1: Getting Ready to Learn (4 lessons)

(As I said—packed with information!) If you want an even more detailed outline of the course, you can download it by clicking or right-clicking on this link.

I’ve structured the PivotTables for the Faint of Heart course so that it is easy to develop the skills you need. Plus, I’ve done my best to pack the course with features and benefits that make it an absolutely awesome value.
The Price for this Awesome Value?
The registration fee for the course is a fraction of what in-person events can cost. Plus, registration provides you with something an in-person event cannot—a full year of access to the course materials, not just a couple of days as is par for the course with in-person events.
The benefit to registering, of course, is that you discover how to put PivotTables to work within Excel, learning the secrets and skills necessary to take your use of the program to the next level.
You can grab all the features, benefits, and (most of all) VALUE detailed above for only $99. The PivotTables for the Faint of Heart course is a great deal, but you can only sign up for a few more days. Registration closes at end-of-day on Thursday, March 18, so the time to register is now!
I’m betting that you can catch a glimpse of the great value in the PivotTables for the Faint of Heart course. While I can’t come to your hometown and host one of my training seminars, I can do the next best thing and provide the online tools you need to finally harness how to create and use PivotTables. Plus, I can provide it at a lower cost than a “hometown seminar” and provide more features and benefits.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that my PivotTables for the Faint of Heart course is part of the Tips.Net Library. What is the Library? Good question!
