Overview - Power BI Fundamentals Course
- No prior knowledge required
- Ideal for Power BI rolls outs within businesses
Our fundamentals course is ideal for staff who are new to Power BI and would class themselves as beginners or near beginners. Perhaps you have been using the tool for a few months with no training and feel you aren’t getting the full potential of the software. If that’s the case, our trainers can definitely help.
It’s also perfect for teams with no experience in the tool. If a company is rolling out Power BI to new departments, this course would get everyone familiar with the tool and able to generate insightful reports, design dashboards and get an overview of all the features and functions in a practical, applicable way.
Overview - Power BI Advanced Course
- Prior knowledge required
- Enhance skill sets to meet goals
Our Power BI Advanced Course is for users with some experience in Power BI and some confidence in the tool. Users should be familiar with calculated columns and measures and have an idea of what they want to achieve with the software moving forwards.
This course can be used as a refresh, to ensure teams have the same level of understanding, and to push staff to the next level to improve data analysis and outcomes with the tool.
