    “As a first introduction to Power BI, I think this is a great course. I have been taking notes diligently and will be going back to make some improvements on reports that have already been developed. I hope there will be a more advanced course coming out from these guys. I think they do a great job on communicating and providing examples as I know that I can learn a lot more from Guy in a Cube. ”

    “I've been learning how to use Power BI on my own at work for the past 18 months or so and decided that I'd like to go down a more formal route to get a better understanding of how things are actually supposed to work. I already followed the Guy in a Cube channel on Youtube and watch all their videos when researching the various problems I've had. I find their presentation style very easy to follow along and they obviously know what they are talking about! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who's just starting using the software or wants a refresher to test their knowledge.”

FAQ

  • How is this different from Dashboard in a day?

    Dashboard in a day is a great initial intro to Power BI, but it is limited to a 4 hour block. In our Power BI Blueprint, we walk you through Power BI, beginning to end. We go deeper into those items than what Dashboard in a day allows for. We also add in tips and tricks we've learned over time.

  • Is this a live broadcast of an in-person training?

    No. This is an on-demand, self-paced, online training.

  • How long do I have access for?

    The course is available to you for 1 year. During that time, you will receive all updates to the course, along with any new sections that are added.
