I have text in cells indicating the days that trainees want to take classes, i.e. SAT or M-TH. How would I calculate the number of trainees that wish to take SAT classes, and those that wish to take M-TH classes?

I tried IF, but, provided that's correct, I'm evidently not putting the formula together correctly. :(

Customize Quick Access Toolbar. From All Commands, add Speak Cells or Speak Cells on Enter to QAT. Select cells. Press Speak Cells.
Have you considered SUMPRODUCT for this?

Perhaps, you can use a Countif()

e.g.
=Countif(A1:A5,"SAT") where A1:A5 contain the days
