Why this Course is Different/Better

Not all Power BI, Power Pivot and Power Query training is created equal.  This training course was developed and is taught by Matt Allington who is a career Excel Professional and Microsoft MVP specialising in the Microsoft Self Service BI Products.

One or Two Days Training?

This course can be taken as a 1 day introduction course or a 2 day course for those that want to dive in deeper.

The One Day Course

The one day course covers all you need to know to start using the Power BI suite of tools without expecting you to be a programmer.

  • How to get started using Power Pivot for Excel
  • The basics of data modelling including loading tables of data
  • A basic overview of the DAX language (Data Analysis Expressions).
  • In depth coverage of building visuals using Power BI Desktop
  • 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.

The More Comprehensive 2 Day Course

The 2 day course covers all of the content of the 1 day course and then 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. 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.
