What is the Power BI JumpStart Challenge?
You can start taking the Power BI JumpStart Challenge within minutes of registering.
We've built the challenge to be fun and rewarding so you can expect some surprises 😀
Normal courses have low completion rates. Most people pass our Challenge!
What do I need to have set up to take the challenge?
No Previous skills necessary
We've built the Challenge for anyone to follow along with, so you don't need any previous skills. Knowing a bit about Excel or being a bit 'technically minded' is really helpful but we'll give you what you need along the way.
An application called "Power BI Desktop" on your 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. We also show you how, just in case.
(optional) Microsoft 365 Tenant
To get the most out of the Challenge, you'll want to practice sharing a report with others. You'll do this via the Power BI cloud service. You can get access to the Cloud Service 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 support 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.
