This 3-day instructor led course will expand Tableau Desktop knowledge into intermediate and advanced levels. Participants will learn more in-depth Tableau features and increasingly sophisticated charting approaches to solve more demanding data visualization requirements.
The primary audience for this course consists of anyone in an organization or company who wishes to perform personal data analysis on a cloud or on premise data source. Participants DO NOT need an IT background to be successful with Tableau.
At course completion, participants will be able to analyze data using more advanced Tableau techniques, such as advanced calculations, table calculations, parameters, advanced mapping techniques (including custom background images), animation with motion charts, and highly interactive dashboards. Data visualization best practices will be emphasized throughout the course.
Tab200 is the second course in the Tableau Certificate. To complete the certificate students will also enroll in TAB100. Click on each course link for more details and to add to cart.
