Learn Power BI from an Industry Expert
Industry leading Power BI training, coaching and consulting
Do you know what you need to know?
On the surface, Power BI looks like an easy to learn Microsoft tool, however what most people think they need to learn is often not even half of what they need. My live Power BI training course is conveniently split into 2 distinct learning days so that you can choose the level of learning that is right for you. Day one will teach you what you need to know to build reports and dashboards using data prepared by someone else. For those that want to learn more (e.g. business analysts, Excel power users), come back for day 2 and learn what you actually need to know to be good using this tool by enhancing the underlying data so you can extract the hidden insights.
