“I highly recommend the course for Power BI starters. Instructors are already MVP for PowerBI and very detailed and patient in explaining.”

“Reza explains things so well and easy to understand and goes at a pace everyone can follow. He also reads the room and can tell if we like or don’t like something and adjusts so that it makes sense to us.”

“We organised a 4-day training event with Reza and Leila from Radacad. From the outset, they provided great advice on what they could cover and provided a very comprehensive overview for the 25 trainees attending the training. For anyone who is considering PowerBI specifically and want clarity on the best architecture and how to effectively use PowerBI, I strongly recommend contacting Radacad. They gave us a real head start.”

I spent probably about two weeks looking for a good Microsoft Power BI class that would cover all of the aspects of the program. I wanted to walk away from the class being able to apply what I learned immediately. Most training companies that I looked into were in a state of flux with Power BI mostly due to the transitions that Power BI itself was going through. Then I stumbled on the RADACAD website. Reza Rad touted a course that he taught named “Power BI, From Rookie to Rock star.” If the class was indeed an A to Z course, then it was exactly what I was looking for. The class outline seemed to include every topic on my checkoff list plus much more. I decided to give Reza a try.
Reza completely lived up to his hype. He took us through a natural progression of the software, using example after example of how to complete a task. We went through real-world scenarios, a bare minimum of two scenarios for each minor topic. I was completely impressed with his Power BI knowledge, understanding, and abilities. Any question we came to Reza with was answered completely and with even more examples.
After the class, my goal of immediately applying what I learned was attained. Right away I was able to successfully pull and massage data, create useful reports and post them to dashboards.
I would recommend Radacad Power BI Training without hesitation.

“Easily the finest quality course I’ve ever attended in my life. Reza knows PowerBI inside out and it really showed in the extent of topics covered. He was also willing to show me an example on real-life data application, and offered further help via email inquiries in the future. Well worth the money and time invested, as PowerBI is definitely the future of business reporting.”

“Reza and Leila with RADACAD were phenomenal course facilitators and very accommodating of our group of 12. The course content was clear, well-paced, and structured intently with each lesson serving as a building block for the next. The team thoroughly enjoyed the engagement and definitely felt like Power BI Rockstars coming out of each session. Our organization has already begun to reap the benefits of this investment with RADACAD.”

I must say your “Power BI Essentials” course has been the most comprehensive Power BI course I have found to date and seeing how you work with data especially the little tricks naturally introduced at just the right moments has made this course a pleasure to take.

“I learned a lot from this course: it gave a great overview of what’s possible both right from the UI, and what more awaits if you lift the hood and pimp the engine. It’s incredible to see just how much PowerBI and PowerQuery radically simplify what I would otherwise have to do with many, many lines of complicated VBA code. And Reza is a masterful user of this tool.
Note that Reza covers a lot of ground in this course, and it is pretty fast-paced. While you can take a laptop and follow along as Reza takes PowerBI/Powerquery through its paces, for the one-day course my recommendation would be to keep that laptop closed, and simply sit back and watch Reza in action, so you can fully concentrate on just how simple this tool is to use in the right hands as well as think about how you might use the tool to your own ends and ask questions along those lines. You can always purchase the video course (if it’s not already included in your course) and step through the material again at your own pace.”

Together with two colleagues of mine I joined Module 2 & 3 of the “Power BI from Rookie to Rock – Star” Training in Duisburg, Germany. The in-person training hold by Reza was just fantastic. In a well-structured way Reza not only gave a comprehensive overview but also deep dived into the functionalities of PowerBI and showed us the great value this software could bring to enterprises. I can strongly recommend the sessions and hope to get the chance to attend other courses as well. Thanks a lot to Reza and team!

“The workshop run by Reza and Leila was amongst the best I’ve ever done. The pace was just right. Their prepared materials were superb.  I really enjoyed the hands-on nature of their training. I learned so much in a short time. I came back to my desk and felt confident enough to start building my own reports.
I would definitely sign up for their training again!”

I had a beginner’s knowledge of Power BI, and found the course extremely helpful in understanding what could be done within Power BI. Reza was an excellent instructor, and explained concepts and methods in a clear and concise manner. There were lots of practical examples and exercises provided as part of the course, and Reza was also very helpful and willing to answer any questions we had about improving our existing Power BI reports and dashboards. A very enjoyable course – I highly recommended it.

“I have been using Power BI for around 1 year and I was in love with it the very first day. It was very easy to visualize and bring our data stories to the client’s presentations. During my initial days, I had to use web search or use the Microsoft Power BI forums to find answers to my questions and to explore the tool. On many such occasions, I found Reza’s blog and articles to my rescue. I finally decided to attend the 5 day Power BI : Rookie to Rockstar Course.
Right from the Day 1 through Day 5, Reza was a professional and a pleasant instructor. He is very approachable and very much flexible even though I was attending the Online Course from United States. The classroom was LIVE from New Zealand. Very thorough in covering all the details mentioned in the curriculum and there was no Question that he could not answer. His expertise and knowledge are second to none. I have learnt a lot with the sessions especially data modeling and DAX functions which I would definitely put to use in the near future at my current job. I would like to thank Reza and his team for the flawless and wonderful sessions. It was very informative.”

The course was an excellent investment overall, it exceed my expectations.  It was well paced and presented.  The instructor, Reza Rad, was excellent and was able to answer all my questions and explain complex idea in a manner that was easy to understand and follow.  I had been using Power BI Desktop for a number of months prior to taking this course, but wish I had attended it sooner!  The course structure of 1 day of overall Power BI and followed by 4 days of more intensive instruction on the various parts of Power BI allowed for a basic understanding of the whole, and then more comprehensive learning. The live-on-line experience worked well technically and allowed for questions and problem-solving with the instructor.  I learned a lot about Power BI and this course gave me a great foundation for using Power BI to clean, model, design, and share reports using a variety of visualizations that will provide business intelligence to my company.  I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn Power BI either as a starting point or even after you have used the tool to deepen your understanding and build your skill-setrkable?”

I was a complete Power BI novice, having only previously accomplished a few very basic things with Power BI. Reza took the group through all the components that make up environment. He explained how they had evolved and took the group through walk-throughs of each one. Reza was great at answering questions from the audience at the event and going into extra detail if necessary. All in all, I would say that I’m now a very confident Power BI user after attending Reza’s pre-con.

“Shortly after completing the training, I applied for a Technical Advisor position. I was selected for the position in part because of the PowerBI training I had just completed. I will be living and breathing PowerBI in this new role. This is very exciting!”

“My business had an unresolved PowerQuery issue that was severely hampering a key process. And after our internal resources had tried several process changes, they were unable to get a satisfactory resolution. However, during our consulting call with Reza, I realized how powerful it could be to have a technical resource like Reza and his team ‘on-call’ for serious issues. By using Radacad I could bring to bear a breadth of expertise and techniques on my business problems that I could not match with my own internal resources. My business partner and I went from skeptical to enthusiastic after our first experience. Radacad makes some bold claims about their service, and they meet them.”

Reza does not just know Power BI like the back of his hand, he is the most commercially aware BI person I know.  He understands that companies work in the real world and that data isn’t always clean and needs manipulation for it to work and be useful.  When Reza worked on our project, nothing phased or flustered him, he always came up with solutions for problems that seemed to me as insurmountable.  Can’t recommend him enough, invest in Reza as he will not only save you a whole heap of time, but he comes up with long-lasting and very powerful Power BI solutions for your business.

We have started to use Microsoft Power BI and whilst Microsoft tutorials are helpful, if you are not used to DAX then it is very difficult to get your head around and there is little other resources that don’t cost an arm and a leg.  I had a call with Reza who made my life so much easier in just under an hour!  Any time spent speaking to Reza will be well worth it – I have saved hours of trying to get my head around our dashboards by getting some very useful tips and explanations on why things are done the DAX way!  Not only that but he is very patient and straightforward.  Highly recommended!
