TP2763 Using Tableau

An increase in the volume and velocity of data has spurred a need for new techniques to understand and convey its meaning.  Data visualizations are graphical means of summarizing and describing data.  This course provides participants with instructions on using Tableau to create various types of visualizations.

TP2824 Tableau Master

This is an advanced course for experienced Tableau users who want to enhance their basic skills. We will do deep dives into the nine different types of filters in Tableau; various ways of creating advanced sets; advanced table calculations; dynamic, multi-level sets; level of detail expressions, custom mapping, and multi-pass table calculations. We perform various hands-on exercises in each topic and learn the specific techniques required to achieve them. You can then use these skills to reduce the amount of work you must do when building complex, dynamic visuals. Once you complete this course you can build layered, highly-targeted filters, perform affiliate analysis, and have a thorough understanding of advanced table calculations and techniques for understanding and debugging them when they break.

TP2847 Exploratory Data Analysis Using Tableau

Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) is an approach to data analysis that creates an understanding of the important characteristics of a data set.  As such, it is a critical first step in any decision making process.  The purpose of this course is to provide a systematic method for looking at data and extracting the patterns that are contained in the data. To do that, participants will learn an approach and a set of methods that can accommodate a wide variety of data.

TP2848 Communicating with Data Using Tableau

An increase in the volume and velocity of data has spurred a need for new techniques to understand and convey its meaning.  Data visualizations are graphical means of summarizing and describing data and software, such as Tableau, allow the ability to quickly create those visualizations.  Unfortunately, increasing software capabilities does not always mean better communication of the message.  Quite frequently, the message ‘gets lost’ in overly complicated and messy visualizations.  This course teaches participants how to link the data they have and the message they want to deliver.  Its emphasis is on the art and science of communicating with data and shows participants how to accomplish this in the context Tableau’s capabilities and functionality.
