Why this Course is Different/Better
Not all Power BI training is created equal. This training course was developed by Matt Allington who is a Microsoft MVP (Power BI) and author of the best selling book Supercharge Power BI. The training is delivered by Matt Allington or one of his accredited trainers. The curriculum of this course has been designed to make complicated concepts easy to understand. Each participant of the second day of training will receive a copy of Matt’s book so they can continue the learning journey after the course.
One or Two Days Training?
The course is for 2 days (check below for the dates in your location) and the course coverage is as given below.
- 1 Day Data to Dashboard Using Power BI (6.5 CPD hours)
- 1 Day Data Modelling with Power BI (6.5 CPD hours)
This Power BI training course can be taken as a standalone 2-day course, or as two separate training programs. It is recommended for most people to attend the comprehensive 2-day course “Power BI for the Business Analyst”.
Data to Dashboard Using Power BI (1 Day)
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 Power BI Desktop.
- In depth coverage of building visuals and reports using Power BI Desktop.
- Creating dashboards on Power BI.com.
- Sharing your reports with dashboards and work spaces using PowerBI.com.
- Introduction to Power Query, and hands on learning of several reusable patterns that cover common use cases for loading ad hoc data.
Data Modelling with Power BI (1 Day)
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 BI. Unlike some other learning resources, this course dives deep into the details of Power BI Data Modelling with DAX (the data modelling language of Power BI), teaching you everything you really need to know to be good at using Power BI.
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 Power BI, you must learn how to become a data modeller using Power BI– 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
- Overview of the DAX language (Data Analysis Expressions).
- 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
At the end of the 2 days you will be well on you way to becoming a Power BI ninja.
All participants will receive the certificate of completion at the end of the course.
Participants registered for the 2nd day of training will receive a copy of the book “Supercharge Power BI”. If instead you would prefer a copy of “Supercharge Excel”, please indicate this when you place your order. With these books you can continue your learning after the live training using the same familiar learning style covered in the course.
Full details of the course are covered in this downloadable course brochure.
