About Course

If you have been wasting vast amounts of time at work trying to gather, fix and combine your Excel data before you’ve ever done any analysis and reporting, then let our resident Data expert show you how Power Query can transform the way you work!

HOW POWER QUERY CAN PREVENT TIME WASTING?

Power Query is the No.1 Excel feature added in the last decade because it can help you get data from various sources, no matter what format it is and clean it all up for you with nothing more than a few clicks! Specifically, there are two ways Power Query saves you vast amounts of time:

1. ​If you have reports that are frequently updated, then you just create a ‘Query’ from a source of data then all you need to do is press refresh every time you need to update, and Power Query will carry out all the little steps needed to clean up your data

2. ​If you work with messy or unstructured data that consumes a lot of your time to clean up, then Power Query has some functions that instantly fix your data such as unpivoting, appending, joining and transposing to name a few

Power Query’s magic is in saving you from all the usual ways to clean up your Excel data that are far too time-consuming. But it’s not just Excel data you clean up, it’s any data from most Databases, SAP, Salesforce, SharePoint and so on.

HOW THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU?

This video course is taught by our in-house Data expert Ross Hughes who has over 30 years of experience working with Data in senior technical roles within major companies. In a few short hours of self-paced training, Ross will have you going through the full cycle of ‘Getting, Transforming and Refreshing’ your data, after which it will be ready for quick analysis and report. Ross’ experience is priceless, he shows you how to harness Power Query like few can and having him, teaching you ‘over his shoulder’ is more than worth the price of the course.

It depends on your level of commitment. Our students have seen incredible results from as little as 3o mins a day. But remember the magic is in applying the skills as much as learning them. Our courses are designed with this in mind. On the very practical end we have students who squeeze in a few mins here and there on their commute and some do dedicated 2-3 hour weekend sessions. One of our most successful students Jayne managed to get up at 4am to do her learning! This paid off massively as it landed her a six figure analyst job in a bank!
