The Power BI with Excel course is designed to get you up to speed using tools easily accessible to power users and all Microsoft Office users including Office 365 (Please note: Office 365 is not mandatory for this class). First, you’ll learn the basics of creating models using Power Pivot. Then, using Power Query, you’ll shape additional data that can be found in external data sources.
Because this class is focused on self-service end user solutions, previous SQL Server knowledge is not required. While it’s not mandatory, ideally students should have a basic understanding of database terminology, such as tables, views, columns, rows, etc.
