Details about the Power Pivot course:

What is this course?

Power Pivot, an Excel add-in makes it easy to connect, analyze & visualize massive amounts of data.

Since this is a vast ocean of features and possibilities, I have created 3 different courses.

Excel School: teaches you how to analyze data, create pivot tables, make charts, design interactive dashboards using Excel.

Power Pivot Course: teaches you how to use Power Pivot to analyze data, create advanced reports & prepare dashboards all from familiar interface of Excel.

Advanced Power Pivot Course: Deep dives you in to the world of measures, formulas, analysis techniques and re-usable patterns. You will also learn about performance optimization, custom calendars and other such potent data magic. (this will be taught by Rob Collie).

Who should go for these courses?

This course is ideal for data analysts, reporting & MIS professionals, business analysts, managers & dashboard makers.

For Excel School, you can be a beginner or intermediate level Excel user with Excel 2007 or above.

For Power Pivot courses: you should be familiar with Excel & Pivot Tables and running at least Excel 2010 to enjoy this course.

NOTE: Go for bundled courses to save $s and become 2x (or 3x) awesome in your work.

    I am teaching Excel to 8th graders this year. I am having to get my material off the Internet, because the book wasn't ordered until 9/16/2013. I have used some of your material before with your permission. May I use some of your material again if I find any that I can use?

    I'm an employer counselor and provide quick computer trainings to elderly people, such as reading email, browse the internet and make a home budget... I often have a hard time teaching them about excel... was wondering if i could use your material on my presentations. Thanks a lot in advance.
