Live Online DAX "Very good training. I was able to learn many different DAX formulas and it was exactly what I needed."

Foster Refrigeration

"The training was pitched at exactly the right level and Simon Cubbin tailored the course to fit the requirements of our company. After a 2 day course we had a working sales analysis model with all the correctly structured measures in place ready for deployment across the business. Simon's level of knowledge and teaching style were excellent. Highly recommended.

Power BI DAX Training Course Beginners

Power BI DAX Overview

DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) is the language of such analytical tools as PowerBI, Power Pivot and SQL server. Having a thorough understanding of DAX will allow you to develop visualisations and present data in any way you want. No longer are you constrained to using the standard formula that comes with Excel. You no more have to work out complex time analysis functions that should be straightforward. Formulas such as Year to Date or Quarter to Date or even working out how much you''ve earned this financial year.

Although DAX can be used in a number of scenarios, the course primarily concentrates on DAX for PowerBI. You will see how understanding more about DAX will give you power and control over your visualisations and in that way allow you to present your data in a fantastically clear way.

Course Prerequisites:

This course focuses primarily on the DAX and how it can be used in certain situations. Although this is a beginners DAX course, it would be advisable for someone to have been through the PowerBI introduction training course beforehand. This way students can ensure that the training can focus on creating measures and calculated columns. Not working out how to put a pie chart onto a dashboard.
