You'll get the most out of this course if you've already dabbled with Power BI, although no experience is essential. The course has a very ambitious timetable, and obviously our ability to cover all of the syllabus will depend on the ability of those attending!
Here are our next few Fast track Power BI and DAX course dates:

Got a handful of like-minded people in your organisation? You could consider booking your own customised onsite course, whereby you get to pick the dates and venue!
If you're new(ish) to Power BI, you're faced with two hurdles:
You need to get up to speed with extracting, transforming and loading data in Power BI, creating data models, creating visuals and learning about topics like slicers, drill-down and publishing; but
You're also probably going to have to learn how to create calculated columns and measures using DAX, to allow you to report on custom statistics.
For most people we'd recommend doing this in two stages, by attending our two-day Introduction to Power BI course and then our two-day DAX course, but if you're a quick learner (and don't mind three very intensive days) we've created a three-day fast-track course to try to square an impossible circle, and squeeze four days of training into three days!
This fast-track course combines topics from the following other Wise Owl courses:

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.
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:
You can see full details of our online course requirements here.
If you book a place on one of our courses:
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!
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.
For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:
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).
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.
