Big Data, they say, is where it’s at. Or maybe no one actually says that, but still it’s true. Think of all the industries that have traditionally relied on data for success—professional sports and finance to name just two. Some brands have even used it to delight (or annoy) customers. And now all kinds of businesses, large and small, understand that data will talk “if you listen to it,” so jobs for folks who can do that exact thing are plentiful. So if you’re more left brain than right, the 2020 Master Microsoft Excel & Power BI Certification Bundle is just the thing to turn you into the data-driven hero companies need.
With 28 hours of online training in data plotting, auto calculation, macros, visualization, and more, this go-at-your-own-pace education can give you the skills you need to better your career. The courses are designed by award-winning training organizations, Excel experts, and “Data Analysis Ninjas” like author, software developer, and instructor Bryan Fong.
Over 470 lessons, you’ll tackle a 70-minute overview of how Power BI Dashboards work and how to use it to your advantage for processing data and creating reports; get up and running with Power BI Desktop to transform, analyze, and visualize data; and spend a mere three hours on mastering Power Query and M language to discover the power of formulas, analytical tools, tables, etc., as well as practice the more-advanced data cleansing.
There are also courses that cover some likely more familiar topics imperative to a successful career in data analytics.
