HOW MUCH OF YOUR TIME WILL THIS TAKE?
Delegates are also provided 6 weeks access to our Tableau Coaching. We run Live Q&A sessions from 4pm-5pm on a Monday (Connecting to Data and Calculated Fields), 2pm-3pm Friday (Creating Charts) & 4pm-5pm Friday (Dashboard Design).
The coaching helps delegates to transition from the theory of using Tableau to its practical use. We’d be expecting them to apply the exercises you’ll be doing during the course, onto your own data after the course. In our experience, this is the best way to increase both understanding and long term memory retention.
The live coaching also acts as a troubleshooting platform for any practical issues that delegates need to overcome in the real world.
Delegates also have 12 months access to all of the training material covered in the course in the form of an online portal (this includes theory videos, exercise solution videos, exercise materials and even quizzes). We have a growing LinkedIn community that delegates are encouraged to join and participate in. We regularly post useful blog posts and additional training that will enhance the Tableau journey and understanding.
