Course description

Quickly learn to use Power BI for impactful data visualization, reporting, and communication.

Data visualization is a critical component of any data practice. The ability to sort through data for meaningful insights is only as useful as your ability to communicate those insights – quickly and easily. Teammates, decision-makers, and colleagues need to understand the story your data is telling, and effective visualization is the key.

Power BI comes with a wealth of features for effectively visualizing information and insights. This fast-paced workshop assumes no previous experience with Power BI. Our expert instructors get you up and running in one day so you return to work immediately capable of applying what you learn. Starting with a few fundamentals, you will leave class equipped with a core set of skills for using PowerBI to visualize and communicate your data and the stories it tells.
