Most recently, I did the top skills that you can learn to get a coveted job in IT without any problems. If you haven't read it, I recommend reading it right now at the link.
I want to supplement that article a little and give examples of FREE courses, after passing which you will receive the necessary base to start a career in IT.
Note: This is not an advertisement, and I am not affiliated with any of the courses below.
Trumpexel is an excellent source for a 12-hour free Excel course where you can learn about all the rich features of Excel.
The course is very detailed and includes many modules that will suit both beginners and specialists with a background. I certainly recommend starting from the beginning even if you already know something, because there is a chance that you will miss details that will make it harder to understand and disassemble the module later.

The course covers all the basic aspects of the query language, from simple queries and explaining the theory of what databases are in general to building more complex scripts, such as grouping data or joining tables on a specific column.

The course from Udacity is quite short - the creators take no more than a week for it. Actually it's good. It's not worth spending more than a week on command line basics. This is enough to make more advanced courses easier for you.

To be honest, this is one of the most amazing free courses I have ever seen.

It will take a lot of time and there will be many difficulties along the way. I want you to deal with them.
