Overview

On this accelerated Microsoft Certified Data Analyst Associate course, you'll learn how to boost the value of your business’ data assets by using Microsoft Power BI.

In just 3 days, you'll gain knowledge on designing and building scalable data models, cleaning and transforming data, enabling advanced analytic capabilities, and deploying and maintaining deliverables. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Collaborate with key stakeholders to deliver relevant insights
  • Resolve inconsistencies, unexpected or null values, and data quality issues
  • Use DAX to build complex measures and implement Time Intelligence

At the end of your course, you’ll sit Exam DA-100: Analysing Data with Microsoft Power BI and get certified as a Microsoft Data Analyst Associate.

You'll get access to Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) and learn from certified instructors, as Firebrand is a Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning. Train through Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, and you'll achieve your Microsoft certification at twice the speed in a distraction-free environment.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 106,948 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"The course was extremely enjoyable!"
Anonymous, ALD Automotive. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))

"The instructor has been absolutely fantastic and I have got a lot out of this course. It has helped reinforce my knowledge, covered everything from basics to advanced topics. Having an in-person tutor has been immensely helpful as the students have been able to ask questions during discussions and have had explanations in a straightforward way that empathises with beginners from a non-technical background."
Suzanne Clark, ALD. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))

"Over the last few days, I have had the pleasure of a attending this course at Firebrand Learning. I have had the opportunity to be trained by an extremely knowledgeable, well experienced instructor."
