element61 comes to the rescue with 2 courses that can be followed individually or combined and each time bundle all the relevant updates of Power BI during the past months.

Course description

Do you want to stay up to date on the new features of Power BI ?
Are you overwhelmed and consequently not well informed ?

Learning outcomes

Our update sessions will guide you through the latest features of Power BI and give you the ability to get some hands-on experience with these new features during a guided demo.

Target audience

These training sessions are intended for business professionals that are familiar with Power BI but didn’t have the time every month to get familiar with all new features. Typical audience can be data architects, data modelers, business analysts, business intelligence designers, project managers, DW/BI developers.

Price Information
We are organizing 2 Power BI Update sessions per year.

Price per session is 675 €
