Home Incompany Power BI Training DAX Skills Training

During the 1-day Power BI DAX skills training, we show what exactly the DAX programming language is and how you can use it to enrich models. You'll learn to gain insight into data and we'll explain how the language works step by step. From the absolute basics to the more advanced topics. We will be doing a lot of exercises to make sure that trainees have enough hands-on experience with DAX after the training. This way, they will be able to put it into practice immediately!

What exactly is DAX skills training?

DAX is a programming language that allows you to perform analysis. This will give you insight into your data. You don't learn DAX by just doing it, it is really a requirement to have all the theory before you start working with it. The DAX Skills training covers all aspects of the DAX language that are necessary to use this language when working with Power BI. Besides using theory we will also do a lot of exercises to gain practical experience.
