Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) staff benefit from Excel Training

Over the last years, The Integrated Community-Based Ecosystem Management (ICEMA) project has funded a total of 5 basic and 2 advanced Excel courses, during which the MET staff have been trained in the use of Excel. 

The recent Excel training course took place on 16th to 17th March 2011, at the Polytechnic of Namibia computer labs. This was a basic course and the content covered an introduction to Excel environment, inputting data, designing and formatting worksheets, understanding formula constructions, numerical logic and percentages, well as interpreting and presenting management reports. The group was very active, they learned the materials very quickly and were eager to learn more of Excel.

The courses are facilitated by Padelia Paulus, Analyst Programmer at the IT division, and Denyse Faulkner, the Financial Adviser to the Ministry. Padelia Paulus has received on-the-job training to continue running these courses, ensuring that MET staff have continued access to good quality, practical Excel training. 

MET, and in particular the staff who have been trained, would like to thank ICEMA for their support.
