More about our Power Platform training

The main Microsoft Power Platform tools are as follows:

Application

Notes

Power BI

Create visual, interactive reports which you can then publish to your organisation's website (or to a public site). 

Power Apps

Create applications to run on a mobile phone or tablet, with the ability to write back to the underlying data sources.

Power Automate

Automate time-consuming manual tasks within Power BI, whether on your desktop (with Power Automate Desktop) or in the cloud (with Power Automate).

You can see a comparison of Power Automate and Power Automate Desktop in this blog, to help you choose which one you might be interested in.

10 things our courses include

Each of our scheduled courses (whether classroom or online) includes:

  1. Small course sizes - we have a maximum of 6 people on each classroom or online course.
  2. A trainer! And not just anyone - our courses are only ever given by full-time Wise Owls.
  3. Full colour courseware and exercises of oustanding quality.
  4. A no cancellation guarantee (once you've booked and confirmed your training course, it will run).
  5. A one gigabyte USB stick, containing course files, answers to exercises and (by the end of the course) your answers too, together with a nice pen.
  6. Unofficial help after the course (although we don't have a dedicated post-course support line, in practice trainers will be happy to answer the odd ad hoc question after a course has taken place).
  7. A certificate sent out digitally or in paper form (your choice) after each course, together with (for tailored courses) the trainer's thoughts on how the course went.

In addition, our classroom courses also include:

  1. A computer for each delegate (obviously).
  2. Lunch out each day at a local restaurant (chosen on the day of the course, after discussion!).
  3. Unlimited refreshments during the day, including Tassimo or Nespresso coffee and a range of biscuits and snacks to keep you going through those dark afternoon hours.
