Microsoft Power BI Visualisations Course

The business Intelligence analytics service Microsoft Power BI offers a comprehensive view of your most critical business data. In Power BI Desktop, you can build reports by creating a wide range of interactive data visualisations. By attending our 1-day Microsoft Power BI Visualisations course, you will learn how to design these interactive visualisations so you can create reports that allow you to interact with your data and find business insights relevant to you.

This course is available as live online training (currently), as a public course in London (restrictions permitting), and as a private course at your premises (restrictions permitting), tailored to your specific needs. We provide everything needed for the course and can also host it at our training rooms in London.

Attendees for either course type do not need any prior knowledge of Power BI.
