So where do you go from a beginners Power BI course? Well one of the aspects we touched upon was the DAX language. DAX stands for Data Analysis Expressions and is a Data Modeling language.

Comprehensive coverage of DAX is covered in our Power BI DAX Training Course where we cover more of the functions in Detail, including the Calculate function and multiple time analysis functions.


One other course you might be interested in taking in conjunction with this would be the SQL Server Fundamentals course. By taking this course you will be able to either:

  1. Prepare your data before loading into Power BI
  2. Type SQL directly into Power BI.
