Return to Store

Recent studies say that over 65% of us are “visual learners”. Tableau allows any user to quickly, and easily, take any data and visualize the insights buried in that data. One secret to business success is getting to insights, faster. Tableau® helps you get there.

This Level 2 course builds on the first one by furthering our Tableau skills in the areas of joining data, working with calculations, sets and parameters, implementing statistical analysis and forecasting as well as enriching our visualizations with dashboards and maps.

This course is also designed to help students who plan to obtain Tableau® Desktop Qualified Associate certification, which requires candidates to pass the Desktop Qualified Associate exam.

This course is only offered online with Live Instructors from 8am – 4pm daily.
