Mastering DAX (English)

€ 1.149,- (excl. VAT) 2 days Utrecht


In the "Mastering DAX" training, you will learn to recognize important patterns that can be solved simply, powerfully, and dynamically with DAX.

DAX is fundamentally a simple language: with some basic Excel knowledge, you can quickly create your first calculated column. But when you start doing more complex analyses, you soon encounter questions like:

  • How can I easily calculate a percentage of the total?
  • How do I use inactive relationships between tables?

Over two days, we will work with questions and cases that often arise when working with DAX.

Prerequisites for the "Mastering DAX" training

In this training, it's important to have a basic knowledge of Power BI. The ability to create simple reports and perform basic data analyses (without writing DAX yourself) is required. Previous exposure to DAX is helpful, but not necessary: we explain everything.

It's also important to be able to model your data in a Dimensional Model. As long as your data model is correct, you need much less complex DAX logic in practice.

Finally, as a participant, you need access to Power BI Desktop on your own (work) laptop.
