Power Apps training course contents

During this two-day course you'll find out what what rules you need to follow to generate Power BI apps, then learn how to:

  • Create a new canvas from scratch

  • Learn the importance of list, detail, and update forms

  • Learn the basic formulae necessary to make interactive objects

What other people have said

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts. All of the following reviews are from the last 3 calendar years:

"Great course - exactly the right level for me. Fantastic trainer."

Sally Frost (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC))

"I was the only one on this course and this meant I was able to ask as many questions as I needed, cover the topics I felt were most useful, and complete as many practice exercises as I wanted. The trainer, could not have been better - he explained everything really well, and was more than happy to answer all my questions, even if he'd already gone over it. The online nature of the course worked really well and the day was a good length. The manual is super detailed and helpful, and it's good to have the course exercises book too so I can practice on my own after the course. The fact the class was capped at 6 was a real draw, especially as it was a virtual course. The course overview was also comprehensive and it seemed aimed at complete beginners, which was what we needed."

Tilly Baker Hine (UK-German Connection)

"Having attended Wise Owl courses before, I knew this would be the best way to learn more about SQL in a structured setting. I enjoyed the course and the content covered many useful SQL features. The trainer was friendly and welcoming and his delivery was excellent. He is clearly very knowledgeable about SQL and was able to answer all of our questions with ease. He gave us plenty of time to do the exercises with his help, which was particularly good as I sometimes find I forget things if I don't take the time to do them myself, once I've learnt them. Although a basic level of knowledge of SQL is naturally assumed going into an advanced course, I was never put on the spot or had to recall things that weren't in the course. I quite liked that approach."

Conor Fegan (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC))

"The trainer was great, explained everything really well and the course was enjoyable and interesting."

Adrian Ulatowski (Jollyes)

"Very informative course with a great teacher. Would recommend to anyone starting out!"

Charlotte Turner (Kepak Group)

How our training courses work

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.

What you'll need

If you book on a classroom course, the only thing you need to bring to the course is ... yourself! We even provide a notepad and a suprisingly nice pen for you to take notes with.

For online training you'll need two things:

  1. A good internet connection (otherwise you'll have a frustrating time); and
  2. A second screen (a requirement, not a nice-to-have!)

You can see full details of our online course requirements here.

When you book a place

If you book a place on one of our courses:

  • For classroom courses we will send out a joining email. That's it!
  • For online courses we will get in touch to organise a half-hour pre-course check to iron out any connection problems before the course (rather than during it).

Whatever type of course you book, we will also send you out a reminder a few days before the course is due to take place - not that (we hope) you'll have forgotten!

What you won't need

For classroom training, you won't need a computer - we (obviously) will provide that. However, you're welcome to use your own laptop if you prefer, providing that you have the correct software installed.

For online training you will need a computer, but you won't need to have any software installed.  This is because you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed.

The start of the course

For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:

  • familiarise yourself with the set-up;
  • meet your trainer; and
  • get to know the other delegates!

For classroom training it's always nice if people arrive a bit early too, to give people time to meet each other (and drink coffee).

You'll be given a full colour courseware manual, an exercise booklet to go with the course and a USB stick for taking course files away (we'll post all this to you for online courses).

After the course

After the course finishes you'll receive a digital certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).

We don't have any formal arrangement for answering questions after the course, but if you get stuck on something and email your trainer they should (and nearly always do!) respond as quickly as their training schedule allows.
