Power BI in a day

The day will start with raw data and will end with an interactive dashboard published and shared with colleagues. After this day, attendees will be able to start using Power BI independently and create and share simple but useful dashboards.

During this one-day introduction training, attendees will learn how to go through the entire cycle of producing a Power BI dashboard, including:

  • Accessing data
  • Transforming data
  • Combining different sources
  • Explore data (find hidden insights)
  • Visualize insights (create a dashboard)
  • Share a dashboard (either in the cloud or on the on-premises report server)


  • Accessing, transforming and mashing up data using the Power Query Editor
  • Data modelling basics
  • Dashboard creation
  • Dashboard distribution in the cloud or the Power BI Report Server


Some previous experience with Power BI is nice to have, yet not a requirement for this course.


  • Import data into Power BI from various data sources
  • Describe storage options using Power BI when connecting to a database
  • Perform various types of transformations on data in the Power Query Editor
  • Mashup data (bring different data sources together)
  • Describe Power BI desktop data modelling
  • Understand how relationships between tables are created
  • Create visualizations in order to explore data
  • Build an interactive dashboard
  • Share a dashboard with colleagues
