Power BI is better when you learn to write DAX

Power BI online training course: With the right Power BI online training course anyone can learn to use Power BI.  But if you want to Supercharge Power BI, you really need to learn the DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) language.  This is a high quality Online Power BI training course that will teach you how to get the most from this tool.  Participants of this hands-on Power BI online training program will soon realise there is so much more you can do with Power BI once you learn to write DAX.   Anyone that uses Excel can learn the DAX language, but it can be mysteriously confusing to first time Power BI users.  I can help you with that.

This Power BI online training course is a combination of:

  1. Self-paced remote learning using one of my books – Supercharge Power BI or Supercharge Excel. (3 hours per week for 5 weeks – 15 CPD hours)
  2. Weekly video based training with examples and demos to support the complex topics in the book. (1 hour per week for 5 weeks – 5 CPD hours)
  3. Weekly live screen sharing Q&A sessions with me, Matt Allington. (1 hour per week for 5 weeks – 5 CPD hours)

Total CPD hours = 15+5+5 = 25 hours.

This online Power BI training course will teach you how to use the data modelling capabilities in Power BI Desktop and Power Pivot for Excel.

All participants will receive the certificate of completion at the end of the course.

Which Book is Right for You?

Supercharge Power BISupercharge Excel
Microsoft Power BI Online Training

Learn using Power BI DesktopLearn using Power Pivot for Excel

You have a choice of which book to use for your learning.  If you primarily want to use Power Pivot for Excel, you can learn using my first book Supercharge Excel: When You Learn to Write DAX for Power Pivot. If on the other hand you are planning on using Power BI, I recommend you use my new book Supercharge Power BI: Power BI is better when you learn to write DAX.  They both cover the same content and the skills are transferable between Power BI and Excel.  Participants in this Power BI online training course will be given an eBook copy of both books, and you can choose to read which ever version you prefer to participate in the training.

Benefits of Learning Power BI Online, From a Pro

This Power BI online training course has been specifically designed to provide the following benefits.

  • The training is run in semesters so that you can be part of a class of people that are all learning together.
  • You get to learn incrementally over a 6 week period in your own time.  Just find a couple of hours each week to complete the learning.
  • There is a weekly video where Matt Allington explains the concepts that are harder to learn yourself (around 40 mins each week).
  • You get to attend the weekly live Q&A session with Matt Allington.
  • You can choose the appropriate session times for the weekly Q&A sessions that suit your time zone.
  • You will have access to the online course material (videos) for 36 months, so if you want to come back and watch them again then that is fine. Also, you will receive the Q&A session recording through email and you can keep a copy for future reference.
  • The cost of this Power BI training program is very affordable compared with a comparable live training course (about 80% cheaper).

How it Works

You will get a DRM free eBook copy of the books Supercharge Excel and Supercharge Power BI included in the purchase price for this training. If you prefer a paperback, you can refer to my book pages here for Supercharge Excel or here for Supercharge Power BI, to find a suitable place to purchase the physical book (some people just like a real book).

This intuitive Power BI online course is spread across 6 weeks.  Each week, you need to

  • study the chapters prescribed for the week
  • complete the exercises in the relevant chapters for the week
  • watch the video summary for the week to cement your learning
  • attend the weekly Q&A seminar and bring along any questions you have ready to ask for clarification.

The examples and exercises in the book are based on the Adventure Works Access database that you can download for practice as you proceed with the chapters.
