On the fence?
Let’s look at 3 other ways to become a VBA pro
Not sure whether VBA Masterclass is worth it?
Let’s look at 3 alternatives to our training.
#1: Do it yourself
Another way of trying to become a VBA professional is to do it all by yourself.
For this, you need to browse the world wide web for thousands of articles and guides to do certain tasks within VBA.
This is the approach I took as there was no VBA Masterclass back then. It took me 7 years to go from Excel zero to VBA Professional.
The biggest challenge is that reading random tutorials on VBA gives you knowledge without context.
You’ll follow a blind path, without being able to see the bigger picture. That means you learn something, without getting smarter.
But yes, it can be done this way. But if you want to shave off years of VBA’s steep learning curve, you need to follow a plan (like VBA Masterclass).
#2: Buy a physical classroom course
Receiving classroom training equal to VBA Masterclass costs you ~$3,000.
Besides the high-ticket price, there’s another thing to take into consideration:
You’re going to forget most of what you’ve learned.
Experts estimate you remember 20% of a simple 20 slide PowerPoint-presentation.
Imagine how little you’re going to remember from an advanced VBA presentation?!
As VBA is a game of details, being able to review what you learn is crucial.
So, if you go with this option instead, make sure to take tons of notes!
#3: Hire a VBA professional to teach you
Your third option is to hire a VBA professional to teach you.
This will cost you at least $200 times 20 hours = $4,000!
Like with classroom training, it’s hard to remember every detail of what you learn. So, when you forget how to do a reverse for loop, you’re on your own 🙁
The WORST decision
I don’t want you to view this as an option.
But let’s be realistic for a minute… another thing you might do is quit.
I would hate if you did that!
Please pick any other option whether that’s VBA Masterclass or any of the 3 solutions above.
Because learning VBA is so useful for you and your career, your organization, and future.
As I showed you earlier, VBA Developers receive an average annual salary of $90,000. Let’s say you receive a generous $70k.
That’s a $30k increase!
So, if you decide to not learn VBA, you’re basically losing out on $20k/year.
Don’t let this happen, it is not that hard to become a VBA pro!
