Classroom training -  Fast track Power BI

Classroom Training

3-day intensive Power BI training course

Classroom training course - online version also available

3 days

This course is designed for people who tick the following boxes:

  • You've tried teaching yourself Power BI, but realise that you'd learn much more quickly on a formal course (either that or you're self-taught at Power BI and suspect that you've missed lots of tips and tricks along the way).
  • You're normally pretty quick at picking up software, and are happy to cover a lot of material in three days.

If this sounds like you, our three-day fast-track Power BI course could be ideal.  It aims to cover all of the material from our (already busy) two-day Introduction to Power BI and a fair few topics from our two-day Advanced Power BI (Reports) and two-day Advanced Power BI (Data) courses in three busy days.

Why Choose Us?

Sample customer feedback

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"Our trainer was brilliant - attentive, detailed and comprehensive. Really enjoyed my three days with him. I may complete the DAX course 6-12 months down the line once I've got more experienced with PBI."

Sarosh Sethna (Sellafield Ltd)

"Your price (lower than an alternative), previous experience of your training and your friendly approachable nature. The fact we got answers to all the questions we asked about the course within an hour of asking them also helped make our mind up."

David Broomfield (Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service)

"Great course, well worth the money and our trainer was great! Would definitely use Wise Owl again."

Stuart Allan (Lloyds Banking Group)

"Our trainer was really great at bringing this course to life. He had a lot of content to go through but was always willing to stop and take questions."

Mark Whitehurst (Thermo Fisher Scientific)

"I was impressed with our trainer - his pace was just right and he was very good at guiding from one concept to another, in a logical way. I really enjoyed this course and can't wait to use my new skills in the real world. I really liked the concept of a Fasttrack course, where lots is covered in a relatively short time."
