This 2 day Tableau course was built to connect to a wide range of data sources, and allow users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports. Tableau's data connection capabilities and visualization features go far beyond those that can be found in spreadsheets, allowing users to create compelling and interactive worksheets, dashboards, and stories, that bring data to life and turn data into thoughtful action.


This course is designed for professionals in a variety of job roles who are currently using desktop or web-based data-management tools to perform numerical or general data analysis. This includes capturing and reporting on data to peers, executives, and clients. These professionals must also provide data visualizations in reports, or explain data analysis through visualizations.
