Hear why this is one of the TOP-RATED Power BI courses on Udemy:

“Instructor is top notch – moves at the right pace and keeps it interesting. One of the best on Udemy!”

-Adam Edwards

“I absolutely loved this course. This course, as well as Chris’ other courses, move at a perfect pace. I did not find myself getting lost or having to catch up. The detail was enough for me to understand the concepts behind what we were doing in the example work. I have taken a lot of online and in-person courses around Excel, and Chris’ style is engaging and makes the subject matter less dry. I look forward to the next course on Power BI online.”

-Stephen Michael

“Chris is a skilled communicator and does a great job of explaining a complex tool like Microsoft BI. His “pro-tips” are great for new user productivity and gaining a sense of the “big picture”. I also value his “best practices” on building and managing queries and reports. I’m feeling much more confident digging in and using MS Power BI!”
