Power BI Training

Don’t waste time with subpar training.

We deliver the absolute best trainings in the business. Because nothing is more valuable than your time.

We'd taken classes from other providers that weren't helpful, and didn't want to repeat that. THIS class was the complete opposite - wish we'd taken this one first!

Because Power BI is even better in a crisis.

During the COVID crisis we've shifted our public training classes to a live web-based format that is safe and effective. Dates are flexible so please inquire and we'll fill you in.

Exceptional instructors.

Thrive on Questions

We encourage you to ask questions, and we tailor our answers to your background and domain. Because if you wanted someone to robotically deliver a script, you'd go to YouTube.

Seasoned by Doing

When they're not teaching, our instructors are building real-world solutions for our clients. You reap the benefits via tips and best practices you won't get elsewhere.

Walked Your Path

Our consultants came from where you are today: the trenches. We know the problems you face every day, and we ground the training in relevant solutions to those problems.

Engaging

Enjoyable. Exciting. Those words aren't often associated with training, but banishing drudge work from your job and opening new doors IS fun with our approach.

It was never boring or dry, and we walked away with solid, usable data skills. Plus, we also felt understood & connected in ways we did not expect from a training.

Andy D, VP of Operations Industry: Energy

Your training empowered us to make career transitions from tedious spreadsheet jobs to respected data professionals.

Elly W, Data Informatics Analyst Industry: Semiconductor Manufacturing

We've trained hundreds of organizations of all sizes. Here are just a few.
