Knowledge of Tableau was "built up" in a solid way, it was clear that the trainer knew how best to introduce newbies to Tableau, this made it seem very easy.

Trainer went away and found out answers to the questions we had that he didn't know.

It is exciting to learn a new product although it has similarity with MS Excel it is of course different in many aspects

Karthik speaks very clear and provides good examples. He tackled end-to-end things about Tableau and make sure that everyone understands the lesson.

Carmela Ursua - American Power Conversion

The course outline itself is structured very well. Even those who don't have idea with the subject can still follow.

Ian Benedict Almeida - American Power Conversion

The exercises, because we can already apply what have been taught to us.

The fact that Richard could interactively help us with the examples if we got stuck

What I liked the most about the course was the clear way the subject was given in which I really liked tableau.

Pedro Rita - Mathieu & Jonatan Lda

seeing how Tableau could be used for our business and cut down on basically everything, time, effort, FTEs

Damian Canning - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

It gave me a good introduction to Tableau, enough to get me started.

Mary Buckley - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Hit all the topics that I wanted covered - I thought the pace was just right and top marks to the trainer, Richard, who knew his stuff and was a really nice guy :).

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Showing us how to make maps in Tableau, and all their possibilities.

Sabine Kerssens -

Very interactive & Richard was incredibly supportive and encouraging

Kathy McAlynn Rogan - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

The hands on approach which allowed us to follow in the Tableau app as the trainer was demonstrating. This made me feel like I was actually learning.

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

I loved the idea of working on the desktop so that Richard could see what we were doing and we could see him, however it was a bit distracting toggling between his desktop and mine. When I was working on mine while following him the writing on the screen was so small but loved the concept of working on the virtual but its a bit the dual screen capability wasn't available so we could view in full screen mode and work and participate on a full screen.

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

easy to follow and the trainer is attentive

the way it was delivered

Kyle Loughrey - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

More hands on exercises

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

I like the practicality of the training. It helps to be able to practice what is being thought (in real time).

Ahmed Yisau - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Well paced and I liked the way its done interactively handson , rather than going thru the slides which is usually the norm. This being a reporting tool the hands on drive of the options in the tool make much easier to grasp or understand.

Mohan Bezawada - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

The interaction in the sense that we weren't sitting round listening to a lecture. The fact we were in working on the same stuff as the trainer made it much more engaging.

Michael Bryce - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

The details that the lecturer went into. Would have love more time.

Sharon Clarke - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Got a good understanding of a lot of different functions within Tableau.

Ryan Tooms - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Use of Dashboards

James McDevitt - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

I liked the desktop where Richard could come in and help you if you were stuck on something. I also liked the fact we were able to follow along on tableau as I learn better by doing rather than just watching someone do it.

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Having had a very basic knowledge of Tableau this was an excellent course for me to gain confidence in using the tool. I found the information on how to organize my data in Tableau very useful also having the opportunity to work on calculated fields allowed me to recognize of the pitfalls for when we get the invalid error.

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

The level of knowledge delivery was well balanced - it felt appropriate for an audience of what was essentially beginners. The material was just enough to stretch understanding with exercises to reinforce

Declan McLaughlin - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

It was great to see all the things that Tableau is capable of

Tech NorthWest Skillnet

Hands on practice

Steve Hardgrave - Tech NorthWest Skillnet

The course could be tailored to suit your needs and objectives. It can also be delivered on your premises if preferred.
