Data analytics is such a diverse and complex field that new tools, techniques, and technologies are cropping up almost every single day.
There’s always something new to learn and it pays to be one step ahead whether you’re trying to land your first analyst job or already leading a team of analysts.
This is why we keep adding new courses at our On-Demand Learning Platform. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of our newest course: Exam PL-300: Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst.
Exam PL-300: Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst
This course will help you prepare for PL-300, an exam that you need to take in order to earn the Power BI Data Analyst Associate certification.
Skills-wise, if you enjoy analyzing data and using Power BI to discover and unlock data insights, Microsoft’s Power BI Data Analyst Associate is the ideal certification for you. This certification will validate your Power BI expertise and skills, making you a valuable asset to your company.
The PL-300 exam will open a lot of doors, beef up your resume, and fast-track your career as a Microsoft Power BI data analyst.
The PL-300 is probably the most widely recognized of the MS certifications, and having this credential will add credibility to your resume/profile. Second, many employers seeking Data Analysts and/or Power BI developers use this certification as an initial screening, requiring it for all interested candidates.
While we believe that your portfolio is your most important career asset, for a sizable number of employers, you won’t even be able to get in the door to show them your portfolio without the PL-300 certification.
However, before applying for this exam, you need to have a deeper understanding of Power BI. This is where our course can help you.
The PL-300 exam is not cheap – cost to register varies by region, but it can be as high as $165 US. Thus, you want to be sure to maximize your chances of passing on the first attempt, and we believe that with proper study, this course will do exactly that for you.
What To Expect From This Course
Ilgar Zarbaliyev has prepared several self-paced training videos to help you build the necessary skills needed to ace the PL-300 certification.
In the course, Ilgar will introduce you to the type of exam questions to expect. He will explain in detail the 6 learning paths and 16 modules that will be covered in the exam, as well as cover topics on how to prepare, model, visualize and analyze data in Power BI.
The course includes about 7 hours of video content, exercises/demos to reinforce key concepts and extensive practice questions of the exact type you will encounter in the exam.
This course will help you grow from having zero knowledge to being a confident user of Power BI, and will cover the following:
- discuss the various methods and best practices that are in line with business and technical requirements for modeling, visualizing, and analyzing data within Power BI.
- show how to access and process data from a range of data sources.
- explore how to implement proper security standards and policies across the Power BI spectrum, including datasets and groups.
