Full and Lite Versions
Full: The full version is designed for CPAs and accounting professionals and delivers our premier training experience. The full version includes instructor-moderated forums so you can ask questions as needed, qualifies under NASBA QAS Self-Study continuing education standards for (CPE) credit, and provides a certificate of completion. Complete the full versions of Excel University Volumes 1-4 to earn the Excel University Graduate Certification. Once completed, you may display the official Certified Excel University Graduate certification on your LinkedIn profile and resume/cv.
Lite: A lite course is similar to auditing a college course because it provides access to the training materials but there are no assessments (tests) or a certificate of completion. Specifically, the lite version includes the same content as the full version and is designed for those looking to improve their Excel skills without the need for continuing education credit or a certificate of completion. The lite versions do not qualify for the Excel University Graduate Certification or the ability to use the Certified Excel University Graduate designation.
