What you'll learn in this data visualization training:

Fascinated by data visualization but don't have any experience beyond charts in Excel or Powerpoint? Supercharge your data and your career with this action packed workshop on Tableau.

This class aims to take students with no prior experience and make then functional Tableau practitioners by the end of the workshop. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the visual techniques that are employed when describing, analyzing, and communicating data in a business setting. 

We’ll start by explaining the role of data visualization in a business setting, and then dive into the specifics of how Tableau produces its visuals. We will cover the basic principles of data visualization, look at how data viz can be used to convey a message, and walk through the process of creating complex, dynamic visualizations.

Come and learn the basics, and get the skills you need to own that next staff meeting, marketing presentation, or business pitch!

  • Understand the basics of how Tableau connects to and manages data
  • Dimensions, measures, and major data types
  • Tableau’s primary chart types and how to create them
  • How to build interactive filters to better explore your data
  • How to turn your charts into an interactive dashboard

Jonathan was very patient, polite, thorough, and informative. I left the class feeling confident I can jump into Tableau and start producing relevant and insightful day visualizations today. I'm immediately more marketable and valuable as a job candidate. Jonathan, thank you for your kind attention to our class and empowering me for my future. - Ian R. PS: I'll be on the lookout for the next level Tableau class from you. Please only use my first name and last initial.

The class was a solid intro to Tableau. Jonathan gave us enough facility to be able to open Tableau at home and noodle around to build a fuller understanding of what Tableau can do for us. I'm intrigued and want to master it.

I was nervous given some of the past negative reviews for this class, but my experience was pretty good. 3 solid hours of instruction. I left knowing the basics of Tableau. My coworker took this class a few months ago and she is now quite proficient after practicing the skills she learned in the class. I hope I can follow the same learning curve.
