Are You Ready to Discover the Next Level of Excel?

The Excel Hero Academy is a totally unique Excel training program. As a student, you will discover how Excel thinks and how to leverage this into being drastically more productive at work. This can quickly result in promotions, making more money, or being eminently more hirable.

Excel is incredibly powerful and vast. The Excel Hero Academy will teach you how to command Excel in a way that you will not find anywhere else. Much of what you know will be turned on its head, because it is counterproductive.

Who Am I?

My name is Daniel Ferry and I will be your instructor throughout the entire course. The productivity turbocharged techniques that I teach are the result of 26 years of developing Excel business solutions in the real world.

I am a Microsoft Excel MVP and am delighted to share my expertise with you. Please take a moment to review my LinkedIn Profile and to read the many recommendations there from real Excel Hero Academy students. Read in their own words how EHA has benefited their careers and productivity. Here are a few snippets:

Jorge Camoes even called me an Excel Game Changer in an article at his awesome charting blog, and while that is extremely flattering, I think the larger point is that this course will be an Excel game changer for you!

 

VBA and Excel Business Solutions

This is a VBA heavy course, but it is not solely focused on VBA. Rather the training interweaves VBA into each and every weekly module, in a very natural fashion. As you probably know, the VBA that the macro recorder churns out is not very good. Although VBA is used to record macros, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Visual Basic for Applications is a full-fledged programming language, capable of controlling virtually every aspect of Excel and Office, with optional hooks into the entire operating system. The potential of VBA is staggering.

 

When you can wield VBA at will, you can automate Excel to do your work for you!

This 16-week course will teach you to craft proper VBA, including truly understanding and leveraging the Excel object model, modularization, functions and UDFs, classes, branching, looping, and interfacing with external applications such as Access.

But this is not a theory course, it’s hands-on, applied learning focused on business solutions including extraordinary Dashboards and other methods of reporting. Heavy emphasis is on database functionality both by using Excel exclusively, and with using Excel as the front-end to a real database.

We will push Excel hard, seeing just what is possible without any VBA coding at all (a fun example of this is my Excel Chess Game Viewer), but then Discovering the Next Level of power and the universe of possibilities that VBA brings to the table.

 
 

What’s In the Syllabus?

The next class is called EHA5 and it starts on January 7, 2013. Here is the list of the 12 (very in-depth, to the point of advanced) weekly modules included in the academy (remember that each module is strongly peppered with VBA):

MODULE 1

Named Formulas

 

MODULE 2

Array Formulas and Named Formulas Continued

 

MODULE 3

Charting 1

 

MODULE 4

Dashboards 1

 

MODULE 5

Database
Techniques

 

MODULE 6

Advanced and Creative Formulas

 
 

MODULE 7

Charting 2 with Animation

 

MODULE 8

Excel and Access

 

MODULE 9

Dashboards 2

 

MODULE 10

Classes (VBA on Steroids)

 

MODULE 11

Optimization (Speeding up large /slow workbooks)

 

MODULE 12

Extreme Excel

 
 

Every module lasts one week and has engaging homework. The academy is very much a community affair and you will be able to share your completed homework on a Homework Wall for each module. This allows all students to learn from your work and allows you to learn from theirs. This interactivity is extremely valuable to your learning process.

After every three modules, we will take one week to review the previous three modules. Trust me, you will need this time. The information is extremely abundant and it takes time to absorb properly. During the review weeks, you will be presented with relevant (and tough) Excel Challenges that will help solidify the content.

 

Academy Forums

The Excel Hero Academy has a very active community Forums system, a place where the students can discuss, exchange ideas, help each other, etc. We also have a live chat room.

 
 

Bonuses

The modules include dozens of hours of potent video. These are broken into manageable module segment videos that average about 20 minutes in length. Each module has at least three videos with many having more.

In addition the course includes many custom Excel and VBA tools that I have written exclusively for the class. These tools become yours to use as you like (except for resale) as part of the tuition.

Everything in the course is designed to allow you to get inside my head, to see first hand how I approach Excel solutions, and how to bring it all together to form interactive applications with spectacular results. I would have paid 10 times the cost of the tuition, personally, if I had that sort of opportunity years ago!

 

What Are the Prerequisites?

Actually… none. The course is definitely not for Excel beginners. But if you know your way around Excel, know what a formula is and how it is different than plain text, and if you are intelligent, then you are good to go. You do not need to be an expert to enroll in the academy, but you will be an Excel Hero in 16 short weeks when you do.

But what about VBA? I would say this… The academy is designed for someone that knows of VBA, but not necessarily how to do much with it. At the same time it is designed for those that know a lot about VBA. My approach to teaching VBA will work quite well if you are in either group or anywhere in between!

 
 

What Are the Guarantees?

Excel Hero Academy tuition comes with a 30-Day, no questions asked, guarantee. I firmly believe that your decision to enroll in the academy will prove to be a remarkable moment in your life. It will transform the way you approach business tasks. But if you decide for any reason that it was not for you, just send me an email during the first 30 days and I will gladly refund 100% of your tuition.

How Long Can I Access the Materials?

Even though the Excel Hero Academy is just 16 weeks in duration, you will have full, unrestricted online access to all 16 weeks of materials for 24 weeks; that’s a full 6 months! Applications that are built throughout the course (including the dashboards) are yours to keep forever.

 

Alumni Participation

You are enrolling in the 5th Class of the Excel Hero Academy. A huge number of EHA alumni are enrolling in this class. You will benefit from their participation and the knowledge they share.

They are energized at the opportunity to do the entire course once again. There is so much information, that once is really not enough! This is why the majority opt for the Extended Enrollment option, which gives them the right to keep the videos forever, for personal use.

 
 
 

Certification

While I wish I could offer formal accreditation, all students that complete the course will receive an Excel Hero Academy Certificate of Completion, with the hours required printed on it, and the date of completion.

 

May I See a Sample Video?

Absolutely. All of our videos are produced in HD at 1024 x 768, with no panning or zooming. They can be viewed on a computer or on an iPad.

If you can view the following video segment, then your computer will work with all of the videos. They are all encoded with the same settings. We offer Flash videos for a computer and QuickTime videos for the iPad.

The following segment is one of the first from the course that deals with the subject of VBA programming. It is very basic, but allows you to judge the quality.

EHA sample for a computer. EHA sample for an iPad.

Also, if you have a group of five or more, please contact me at the admissions email directly above.

Disclosure: The content of this course is engaging, compelling, and totally unique.

Please keep in mind that this course is focused squarely on Excel techniques to improve business processes. But sometimes it’s fun to use your new skills to build wondrous creations in Excel. In 2011, Microsoft released a video on YouTube and Facebook to celebrate Excel’s 25th Anniversary. It was just 64 seconds long and showcased how Excel has evolved over two and a half decades.

I am honored that the video featured FIVE of my Excel creations. When you complete my course, you will have gained the knowledge required to create these types of projects as well: view video here.

My contributions to the video are all the animated charts, the Butterfly, NFL Drive Chart, Aging Population Dashboard, Bubble Graph, and of course the Animated Business Chart (which lingers near the end).

If you look at the credits, you’ll notice my name directly above Bill Gates. I’m quite certain that’s the only time in my life that will happen!
