Power BI has grown to be a very comprehensive tool. The Microsoft official documentation for Power BI is very comprehensive and covers what all the varies navigation panes and buttons do. Our courses do not focus on teaching what the each part of the tool does or is used for, rather, we focus on how best to use the tool to solve business problems. This is a total different way of thinking and thus requires a different approach. The success of our courses are grounded in our passion to teach best practices rather than teaching ‘how to’. Tip of the iceberg learning, like changing colours etc., is not what our course focuses on, rather, we focus on the unseen part of the iceberg, like data modelling, report design and answering specific questions.
