The objectives of this course are to strengthen the participants’ visualisation and DAX programming skills in Power Bi, so that they become confident at self-serving their analytical needs using the tool. This will be achieved by refining their applied knowledge of common visualisation techniques and exposing them to complex DAX functions within Power BI. The course will be fully hands-on with example dataset(s) provided in Excel format.

Participants are expected to have a beginner-to-intermediate knowledge of the Power BI tool. The Power Bi Desktop application must be installed on each participants’ laptop. This course is designed for finance professionals with limited IT background. Skills attained through this course are largely industry-agnostic, meaning the knowledge gained from attending the course is expected to be transferable across a range of different industries.
