Level Up! Learn One of The hottest skills on the Planet & take A step Closer to A Power BI Career.

WHY IS MICROSOFT POWER BI WORTH LEARNING?
  • IN-DEMAND: There aren't enough people with  Power BI skills, so companies can't recruit. 
  • WORK FROM HOME: Power BI is all online, so many companies don't need you to be in an Office.
  • WELL-PAID: Google "Power BI Jobs" and you will see 1000's of roles all paying top salaries.
  • MICROSOFT: With the might of Microsoft behind Power BI, it's set to get even more popular!
  • EASY: Being a Publisher of Reports for companies sounds scary! But, if you spend 90-minutes to complete our Power BI StepUp Challenge we will show you it's not.
The BIG question: Are you willing to spend 90 minutes to level up on critical skills for a new role? 
Our Power BI StepUp Challenge Is Fantastic at taking you beyond the basics of Power BI!

After you complete the StepUp Challenge, you will be able to enhance and publish ... 

...these stunning, interactive & shareable reports to every device...

What is the Power BI StepUp Challenge?

The Power BI StepUp Challenge is comprised of a set of short lessons that take around 90-minutes in total. You'll level up your skills in Power BI and build on a great report we also developed in the JumpStart challenge (if you are just starting, do this first!
SELF-PACED

The StepUp is bite sized. Each lesson is usually less than 5 mins 

ACHIEVEMENTS

We've built the challenge to  reward you for each step you take

COMPLETION

Normal courses have low completion rates. Most people pass our Challenge!

What do I need to have set up to take the challenge?

If you are wondering, "Can I do this challenge?" ... the answer is YES. And the setup you'll need is really easy
Beginners Welcome

 We'd strongly encourage completing our JumpStart Challenge first, however as long as you already know the basics, we'll give you what you need to build from there.

"Power BI Desktop" on your Windows PC

To follow along with the report building aspects, you will need the Power BI Desktop application. You can get it from the Microsoft Store. It's very easy to install and 100% free. You need a Windows PC.

A Microsoft 365 Tenant

You will be publishing in this challenge so you'll want access to the Power BI cloud service.  You can get it as part of a free M365 Developer Licence. There's also a very cheap paid alternative called a Microsoft Business Basics licence (around USD $5pcm). Or you can use your own Microsoft 365 Tenant. 

Are you a Mac User?

The Power BI Desktop is currently not supported on MacOS so you need a machine running Microsoft Windows. If you don't have one, you can always setup a Virtual PC in the Cloud (we're sorry, we dont teach you how to do this part so you'll need to be set up ready)

Unsure if your Power BI skills are worth developing? Here's a reminder why it's an excellent career choice...

A quick search on "Google Trends" illustrates how many Google searches Power BI has attracted (over the last 5 years) ... and we've not even started yet!

Here's what previous Graduates of the JumpStart have to say (the StepUp will give you the same feeling)...

The use of a logical project was really good. Often you see examples / tutorials that just throw data onto things. By presenting this as a real world example it makes a lot of sense and helps the knowledge stick

Thank you for taking the time to make any updates to the content so that it matched the current Power BI software changes. I have taken courses where the content was based on past versions so nothing to include the screenshots matched up with what I was looking at on my screen

Latonya Blount

The short video was extremely helpful. I thought I could do this in one setting, but life happens, however, I was able to pick right back up.
