Training Course Overview
Power BI is fast becoming the go-to application for businesses, small and large, to step-change their reporting capability. Power BI is sufficiently different from regular Excel that most people benefit from some live training from an expert. In this training course, you will understand exactly what you need to know to start using the Power BI suite of tools even if you are not a programmer. You will learn in-depth how to create Power BI reports and dashboards and how to share them.
The course comprises of 1 module:
- Module 1 – Foundations of Power BI – Data to Dashboard (6.5 CPD hours)
Most participants do both modules together unless they have no need for loading and working with data themselves (module 2). You can find the other modules here.
Power BI Reports and Dashboards
The content in this course is as follows:
- Introduction to Power BI.
- How to use Power BI Desktop.
- In depth coverage of building visuals and reports using Power BI Desktop.
- Publishing reports to Power BI.com.
- Creating dashboards using PowerBI.com.
- Sharing your reports with workspaces and apps using PowerBI.com.
- Power BI.com Features such as Analyze with Excel, Q&A, Workbooks, etc.
- Introduction to Power Query including learning of several reusable patterns that cover common use cases for loading data.
Data Modelling using Power BI
There is a follow up module to this training that covers the more advanced concepts of data modelling for those users that want to build their own data models and analytics using their own data sources. If you are looking for a more in-depth coverage that will allow you to be self-sufficient in building more comprehensive data models, then the course Power BI for the Business Analyst covering both the modules would be better suited for you.
Full details of both days are covered in this downloadable course brochure Power BI For the Business Analyst Online Live Training Outline
