1 Day Introduction to Power BI
This one day course is the first day of the two day training and covers all you need to know to start using the Power BI suite of tools without expecting you to be a programmer. The topics include
- How to use the new Power BI product and what the differences are with Excel.
- A basic overview of the DAX language (Data Analysis Expressions).
- In depth coverage of building visuals using Power BI Desktop.

1 Day Data Modelling with Power BI and Power Pivot
This one day course is the second day of the two day training and goes on to focus on teaching business analysts how to model data using Power Pivot. Power Pivot is the core technology that makes all the analytical power of Power BI possible. Unlike some other learning resources, this course dives deep into the details of Power Pivot teaching you everything you really need to know to be good using all of these tools.
The term “Data Modelling” is not something that is familiar to most Excel Pros, and that is because data modelling has historically been done by IT on your behalf. But if you want to be good with Self Service BI using the Microsoft tools, you must learn how to become a data modeller using Power Pivot – this is exactly what you will learn in this class. Although the concepts are difficult to pick up via self learning, the expert approach from this live training course makes it accessible to any Excel Pro. The topics include
- How to optimally load your data for use.
- Common functions in the DAX language.
- How to write formulas that leverage multiple tables.
- The CALCULATE function – the most important function in DAX.
- Advanced concepts including table functions such as ALL, FILTER.
- Time Intelligence 3 ways, Auto, Inbuilt and Custom.
At the end of the 2 days you will be well on you way to becoming a Power BI, Power Pivot and Power Query ninja.
Participants registered for the two-day training or the 2nd day training will receive a free copy of one of the books “Supercharge Power BI” or “Supercharge Excel” (at your choice). With these books you can continue your learning after the live training using the same familiar learning style covered in the course.
