Why study this course

Power BI is an industry leader and one of the largest and fastest growing business intelligence cloud solutions, used by over 35,000 companies world-wide.

Power BI is a suite of Microsoft tools that are used for business analytics, visualisation, and reporting. Power BI delivers supported decision making through actionable insights. It provides interactive reporting and business intelligence capabilities, allowing users to easily connect to, model, and visualise organisational and public data.

Power BI training is designed to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of the tools. Participants will learn how to use the Power BI tools by following a simple workflow that can be used to design, develop, deploy, and share Power BI reports and dashboards.

The Microsoft Power BI fundamentals course is an entry level workshop. If you are looking for a more in-depth technical course on Power BI, see our Microsoft PL-300T00 course.

Important note: Power BI is a Microsoft App that is not currently supported on non-Windows systems (such as Apple Mac).
