Microsoft Fabric Training

Fabric from Rookie to Rock Star

New York 6th – 8th of May 2024

Microsoft Fabric was recently announced as the Microsoft suite for an end-to-end analytics software-as-a-service offering by Microsoft. As the suite covers many components and workloads, it is essential to have the right training to ensure the proper use of the technology in the correct setup and architecture. RADACAD has helped many organizations, businesses, and individuals worldwide with analytics upskilling over many years. RADACAD not only has the most comprehensive training on Microsoft Power BI, but we also have designed and developed an exclusive training program for Microsoft Fabric that covers all the workloads of Fabric from data engineering, warehousing, data science, integration, Business Intelligence, real-time, storage engine, governance, Data Activator, administration, and architecture. This training combines lecture and hands-on lab experience with Microsoft Fabric.

The training is for you if you are a data analyst, data engineer, data scientist, data developer, data architect, or any other role that deals with data analytics using Microsoft technologies. This training doesn’t have any prerequisites. The training will take you from the beginner level to the advanced level. It is designed so that the learnings can be used immediately after the training day in your day-to-day job and activities.

A very valuable experience; I highly recommend it to anyone planning, implementing or improving Power BI instances. Course topics are suitable for either small or large enterprises. (Richard P.)
  • Thank you for hosting the Melbourne Power BI architecture course. I learned a lot from this session, even though I consider myself to be a Power BI beginner. I look forward to your future content and want to thank you again for all the efforts you’ve taken to put together this course! (Sonia L.)
  • It was a pleasure to attend your training session. It had good coverage overall, perfect for a rookie like me. I now get a better perspective and can see how the smaller pieces fit into the larger picture. (Michelle M.)
