Improve your Power BI modelling know-how
student

Power BI is a powerful tool. Users can achieve quite a lot without much DAX knowledge but to take your skills and modelling ability to the next level, fundamental understanding of the DAX language is key. Our one-day course will introduce key concepts and work through exercises so students leave with a clearer picture of how to write DAX.

What do I need to know to attend?
  • Use Power BI Desktop proficiently to source / model data and create basic tables, columns and measures with DAX
  • Understanding the basic concepts of data modelling and how to perform related tasks in Power BI
  • Have good general knowledge of simple DAX and understand the evaluation contexts (row, filter, context transition etc.)
  • Advanced Excel skills is desired, knowledge of programming / scripting concepts will be an advantage
  • Students should have attended our Power BI Advanced course.
