Demystifying DAX Online is a structured, online training course that will help you enhance your data modeling and DAX skills using Power BI (the skills also apply to Power Pivot and SSAS Tabular). The course is created and delivered by world-renowned DAX expert, trainer, and author of the best-selling book Supercharge Power BI, Matt Allington.

The course is delivered in a semester consisting of 4 sessions (approximately 3 hour each), typically over 3 consecutive weeks.
Each of the 4 sessions consists of:
Total hours: 13.5 hours including video, practice, and live Q&A calls.
It is recommended you view the videos, repeat the demos/practice exercises if you need to, then complete any homework exercises prior to attending the live Q&A calls. One of the benefits of this style of learning is you can consume the content at your own pace (faster, slower, repeat over) and still get to listen to all the discussion and questions from all the other participants during the live calls. The Q&A calls will be recorded, and the recordings will be shared with you after each call.
Demystifying DAX Online is an annual subscription product. Your registration includes the first 12 months of unlimited access to the video content, the sample materials, our premium Discussions Forum, and any of the live Q&A calls while your subscription is active. You can cancel the renewal at any time. Read more about this in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
