Tableau for Beginners

Tableau is the solution that thousands of companies use today as they struggle with their big data issues. This course prepares you for the Tableau Qualified Associate Certification exam, and features three Full-Length Certified Associate Practice Exams with Solution Guide. 

Are you looking to find a way to increase your salary and enjoy your work more? Why not turn to Tableau? Getting certified as a Tableau Qualified Associate can be the first step to achieving this goal. Tableau is not only great fun, it can be really lucrative. Imagine what your life would be like with a $100k salary.

Get Started Today.

Working with Tableau isn't just lucrative - it's fun. And unlike most data analysis tools, Tableau uses a drag-and-drop interface, so you don't need to be a programmer to learn Tableau. If you can learn Excel then you can learn Tableau.

Learn and Apply Fundamental Skills

Get a step-by-step walk-through of the fundamentals of data visualization and data discovery with Tableau. You'll learn how to:

  • Sort, filter, and group your data

  • Create tables, bar charts, line charts

  • Show location using geographic maps

  • Aggregate with sum, average, min, max, and counts

  • Create new fields using calculations

  • Combine data using joins, blends, unions, and relationships.

But just watching the videos won't make you an expert. For mastery, you need to go hands-on by answering questions that reinforce the skills from the videos. To go hands-on, you'll install the Public version of the Tableau software, which is available for free and easy to install on Mac or Windows. Then you'll download the sample data sets included with the course, and Tableau to answer questions about this sample data.

Prepare for the Certified Associate Certification Exam

After completing the units on fundamental Tableau skills, solidify your knowledge by answer questions similar to those on the Tableau Qualified Associate certification exam. If you get stuck on a question, you can watch a video presenting the solution.

Course includes access to three full-length Tableau Certified Associate Certification.

Final Project

The final part of the course is the final project where you use Tableau to create a unique visualization on a topic of your choosing using publicly available data. Save your project to the Tableau Public website and you'll have a project you can show potential employers.

Very detailed and I love the video interface (all the shortcuts to rewind, forward, etc) Excellent step by step course that introduces a new learner to Tableau.

easy to follow along

Most the time it is easy to follow along and I have only run into one time where I was not able to determine the presenter actions with the lesson provided.

Easy to follow along and learning a TON of stuff.

Super easy to follow along to clarity didn't came out in terms of what else table can do, its just mere presentation of already available data , similar to Pivot table and graphing the table is presented in first look at tableau I bought this course tp prepare for the certification exam.

easy to follow along and very descriptive I have always been fascinated by data.

qualified associate exam

It covers all the bases with regards to the topics covered and tested for the Tableau Qualified Associate Exam.

Overall a great course if you are looking for the technical background to pass the Desktop Qualified Associate Exam.

Also, it's a great course to take if you are interested in pursuing the Tableau Qualified Associate exam.

This course, along with the training exercises are the reason for my passing the Qualified Associate Exam.

It covered the basics, however much more information would be needed for me to feel comfortable with taking the Qualified Associate exam.

Highly recommended I would like to thank Lukas for this course which is aimed well at pass the Tableau Qualified Associate exam, which I managed to pass first time with 95% as a result of the course and the practice exam questions.

I just took the Qualified Associate exam and passed.

Good Material , unfortunately i don't have Tableau to test the exercises This course was a great resource before taking the Tableau Qualified Associate Exam.

This is a great prep course for the Qualified Associate Exam.

Its been easy to understand all the concepts it was i could keep up, pace was quick which i like, need to spend more time using it and it will make more sense I'm training for the Tableau Qualified Associate exam so I've viewed many tutorials and courses, but this is the first course that explains now just "how to do something" but "why you do it" and what info you can pull from the view, because of it.

It has the same structure and concepts as the real tableau desktop qualified associate exam (maybe a little more difficult) with a full solution guide!

too fast

The instructor talks too fast.

But I would suggest adding some more hands-on examples and quizzes The class is very good but sometimes the instructor moves the mouse too fast for a beginner course.

Pace is too fast.

I purchased this course a while ago for work - now that I'm in a job where this skill is relevant, I'm going through this course and finding he is going a little too fast, early on.

very clear, it is not too fast nor too slow.

Instructor goes way too fast without explaining very very basic stuff first.

He is not too fast either too slow while explaining the topics.

The course is good but the speaker is too fast and I can't do the same things he did with him.

Very simple, easy to understand Thorough and in-depth, does not move too fast.

Great Course, he just goes too fast sometimes Love It.

data set

The data set provided was extremely useful in aiding the learning process.

Lots of questions and sample data sets so that you can practice.

Since you learn with a data set, you get very good practical knowledge and confidence in Tableau.

Good examples, data sets used were good for real-work situations.

I just wish they went more in depth on how you can alter each data set in anyway you can possibly want.

But this one really useful, Instructor has clear Idea on the concepts, explained all the concepts very well, audio and vedio quality is very good also he provided all the data set to practice and follow along.

A lot of the time, the lesson would start with a worksheet already pulled up without an expiation of what data set to use.

Its awesome..request all new viewers to download the data set FROM the course content before starting the course.

I am currently studying for the Tableau Associate Certification, and with this format I am able to easily grasp the materials and work along with the sample data sets.

each topic

Very detailed way explained through concepts and brilliantly categorized the topics and carefully crafted flow of topics so that learners relate to each topic explained and get back to examples with more clarity.

Good explanation and covers each topic required for CA exam Till now its really good.

Hit each topic directly and examined what tableau was doing through Excel in several areas.

I really like the hands on practice questions after each topic.

Only suggestion I have is to have more practice questions at the end of each topic, so as to get familiar with the topic.

I am getting deep knowledge of each topic.

Yes, Just getting started and I helped me through some work problems Each topic is well explained and the hands-on follow up questions solidifies each concept.

As this is Course 1, I expect to start with 'What is Tableau' and 'How to access Tableau' Have got clear insight of each topic after watching your videos, rather than going through any other content.

The course made me prepare well for the Certification Exam and now am Tableau Desktop Qualified Associate.

I took this course before taking the Tableau Desktop Qualified Associate certification and this was really helpful.

go back

I like the clarity of the lesson and I can learn/go back any time.

So, now I've completed a full training course and still have to go back to research all the other topics on my own.

Each lesson gives you time to absorb the information and provides a place for you to go back and review things you are not as familiar with.

The outline made it easily researchable if you have to go back in and relearn it.

i have to go back to the lectures then it sink sin Love how quickly the lessons are moving.

It was hard to keep up, and worse than that he never stopped to explain the why behind any of it.

Excellent teacher I am able to keep up with this course and learning a lot about in and outs of this application.

wish there

I wish there are more hands on practice questions asked along the way to make this course a 5* course.

I love everything about this course except I wish there is some more explanation on Statistics and trend lines.

Wish there were more practice questions and one more practice exam.

Does a good job explaining Tableau concepts with examples So far I have completed just 25% of course but I m liking it Course Quality is good for the beginner I wish there were more exercises.
