Microsoft Excel® and spreadsheets are an essential tool in business and project management, including the water and wastewater utility industry.  The in30minutes®: Excel Basics course is a quick start guide to help water operators and managers understand the basics of spreadsheet use.  LearnH2O has partnered with the i30 Media Corporation to bring you this course.  The goal is to provide core competence so that you can use spreadsheets for calculations and data storage with confidence.

In30Minutes® books are quick guides for a complex world. The first title was published in 2012 as an ebook for the Amazon Kindle and Apple iPad. Since then, publisher i30 Media Corporation has expanded the in30Minutes® series to more than 20 guides, covering topics as diverse as business, software, genealogy, and medicine. Readers can purchase ebook editions or paperback guides.  Learn more about in30Minutes® at
