Classroom training -  Power BI Paginated Reports

Online Training

Paginated Reports for Power BI

Live online training course - classroom version also available

£595 + VAT (where applicable)

Two days (09:30 to 16:30 UK time each day)

Paginated reports bring the power of Report Builder / Reporting Services to Power BI.  Standard Power BI reports may look good on screen, but are often less impressive when printed out (particularly if they include pages and pages of data).  On this course you'll learn how to use Power BI Report Builder to create paginated reports optimised for printing and exporting, including visuals such as tables, matrices, charts and gauges.

What other people have said

Many thanks to those listed below for kindly agreeing to let us use their names. All of the reviews are from the last 3 calendar years (although some may be for classroom courses):

"Really well put together course and I came away learning lots. I found the online teaching format highly suitable and didn't feel like my learning was impacted by this. Hopefully I'll be able to refer back to some of the exercises in the near future and consolidate my understanding."

Lucas Gurney (PricewaterhouseCoopers)

"I thought this was a really good course and would definitely recommend. It helped that there were only three of us and I felt I could ask questions at any point. The course content was good and covered Power BI really well. The trainer was also really nice and gave us the opportunity to talk to him, before or after the course if we needed a hand with anything."

Banita Mistry (Valuation Office Agency)

"Great course, well structured - excellent trainer! (Been on Power BI course previously.)"

Tony Pole (UP Global Sourcing (UK) Ltd)

How our live online training courses work

We've published a full summary of what it's like to attend a Wise Owl course online - here are the main things you need to know.

What you'll need

You'll need three things for the course:

  1. A computer (obviously) running Windows.
  2. A good internet connection.
  3. A microphone and (ideally) webcam.

In addition you'll find the course very difficult without an additional monitor (so that you can participate in the course on one screen, and use the software you're learning on the other).

What will happen when you book a place

Within a few hours of your booking a place on one of our online courses, we'll be in touch to get you set up correctly.  This usually takes about half an hour, and can be done at any mutually convenient date/time.

A few days before your course begins you'll receive a parcel in the post (free for UK bookings) containing:

  • A full colour courseware manual;
  • An exercise booklet to go with the course; and
  • A USB stick containing the files for the course, should you need a back-up.

Your parcel will even include a Wise Owl Sheaffer biro (they're good; trust us) and pad.

What you won't need

You won't need to install any software at all on your computer.  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; and
  • we use Teams for our online training, which you can run through most modern browsers.
On and after the course

On the day of the course itself you will be able to join the course up to half an hour before it begins. This will give you time to:

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

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