About this course
Data is growing at an alarming rate in many situations excel is becoming less of a viable option to deal with all of this data so what do we do? Does it make sense to immediately move to a database? Well, that comes with a lot of commitment and a lot of cost in terms of implementation and maintenance. However in the last decade a powerful alternative has emerged.
So before you move to a database you need to consider power pivot which has been described as Excel on steroids! Picture this-you're used to dealing with large volumes of data and as it grows and grows and grows excel just slows down and grinds to a halt and it becomes very frustrating to get the outputs that you need well PowerPivot has come along and turned Excel into something like a database so we have a relational model, we have Data Analytics Expressions or DAX expressions to easily and quickly perform analysis on our large volumes of Data.
At Earn And Excel, we've created a course that is going to take you from beginner to advanced level with PowerPivot. Working with Ross Hughes who is a highly experienced consultant having worked with data in large companies for over 30 years. Ross distills his 30+ years of data and gives you not just technical advice on how to make the most of PowerPivot but also practical advice on how to work with data. This course has the potential to transform your data analysis game and if you don’t feel it’s the course for you, then you can get a refund no questions asked.
We will cover all you need to know PowerPivot with the following topics (please use the contents to learn further details of lessons that will be covered):
- Introduction to Power Pivot
- Loading Data
- Pivot Tables And Refresh
- What are Measures and why they are so crucial
- Hierarchies And Related Columns
- Working with DAX beyond the basics

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO YOU DELIVER YOUR COURSES?
Once you have signed up then we will send you an email with a link to access our training dashboard, you can access all of our courses from this dashboard.All courses consist of video lessons that can be viewed on your device of choice and also to truly enhance your learning you will access lots of exercise files relevant to the lessons.
THERE ARE MANY OPTIONS THESE DAYS TO LEARN, WHY GO WITH YOUR COURSES?
Great question, well frankly we make the best courses because all of our trainers have spent 10+ years using these skills in the real world! True knowledge is passed on from people who have been in the trenches, putting in long hours, solving real problems creatively. Our mission is to empower you with the very best of what works and more importantly, leave out what is unnecessary and thus a waste of your precious time.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO LEARN THESE SKILLS?
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!
CAN MY EMPLOYER PAY FOR MY TRAINING?
Yes, this is quite common since we focus on helping actual corporate employees. Note that for teams we offer bulk discounts. However, this needs to be done with a corporate credit/debit card. We don’t accept transfer/remittances. Get in touch if you have any specific questions.
DO YOU HAVE A REFUND POLICY?
Yes, we do, we will dust it off if you need it because it rarely happens! You have 30 days to let us know that the training isn’t right for you and we will happily refund.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO TAKE YOUR COURSES?
