Power BI is better when you learn to write DAX

Anyone can learn to use Power BI.  But if you want to Supercharge Power BI, you really need to learn the DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) language.  There is so much more you can do with Power BI once you learn to write DAX.   Anyone that uses Excel can learn the DAX language, but it can be mysteriously confusing to first time Power BI users.  I can help you with that.

Please note: If you are purchasing this training on behalf of someone else, or are purchasing for a group of people, please be sure to include the name(s) and email address(es) of the intended student(s) using the Order Notes during Checkout.

This online training course is a combination of:

  1. Self-paced remote learning using one of my books – Supercharge Power BI or Supercharge Excel. (3 hours per week for 5 weeks – 15 CPD hours)
  2. Weekly video based training with examples and demos to support the complex topics in the book. (1 hour per week for 5 weeks – 5 CPD hours)
  3. Weekly live screen sharing Q&A sessions with me, Matt Allington. (1 hour per week for 5 weeks – 5 CPD hours)

Total CPD hours = 15+5+5 = 25 hours.

This course will teach you how to use the data modelling capabilities in Power BI Desktop and Power Pivot for Excel.

All participants will receive the certificate of completion at the end of the course.

Which Book is Right for You?

  

I have now completed my new book “Supercharge Excel: When You Learn to Write DAX“.  Participants in this training will be given digital editions of my books “Supercharge Excel” and “Supercharge Power BI”.  Both books follow the same learning curriculum but using the different software products (Excel or Power BI).  You can read which ever book is best for you based on what ever you are using – Excel or Power BI. The skills are fully transferable.

Buy this course and the Power Query Online Training at the same time and automatically get 10% off the price of both products.

Product Description

How it Works

You will get a DRM free eBook copy of the books Supercharge Excel and Supercharge Power BI included in the purchase price for this training. If you prefer a paperback, you can refer to my book pages here for Supercharge Excel or here for Supercharge Power BI, to find a suitable place to purchase the physical book (some people just like a real book).

This intuitive Power BI online course is spread across 5 weeks. You also have 1 Kickoff week and 1 week off for extra study.  Each week, you need to

  • study the chapters prescribed for the week (as given below).
  • complete the exercises in the relevant chapters for the week.
  • watch the video summary for the week to cement your learning.
  • attend the weekly Q&A seminar and bring along any questions you have ready to ask for clarification.

The examples and exercises in the book are based on the Adventure Works Access database that you can download for practice as you proceed with the chapters.

Course Syllabus

The course will follow the chapters in my books (Supercharge Excel and Supercharge Power BI) as outlined below.
If you want to learn using Excel, follow the book Supercharge Excel, and if you want to learn using Power BI Desktop, follow the book Supercharge Power BI. Either way you will learn the same concepts that you can use both in Excel and Power BI Desktop. The only difference is in the User Interface and to help you to switch from one to other, a chapter is devoted for the purpose.
