Supercharge Power BI Online is a structured, online training course that will help you learn to write DAX, the data modeling language of Power BI. It is created and delivered by Matt Allington, a world-renowned DAX expert and trainer and author of the best selling book Supercharge Power BI. The DAX skills learnt are completely transferrable to Excel Power Pivot.
Supercharge Power BI Online training is a combination of:
The course is delivered in a semester spanning 7 weeks. Each week consists of:
Even after the semester is complete, you will continue to have access to:
Total hours: 21 hours reading + 5 hours video + 24 hours live online Q&A = 50 hours
NOTE: Supercharge Power BI Online is built on an annual subscription format. Read more about this in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
You can choose to use either Supercharge Power BI or Supercharge Excel for your learning, depending on which tool you work with most. DAX skills are transferable between Power BI Desktop and Excel Power Pivot, with the difference being UI.
Power BI Desktop is more advanced than Excel in that it might include new DAX functions before Excel. But the DAX concepts remain the same.
Once you register, you will be sent an invitation for the live online Q&A calls.
It is recommended you do the reading and exercises first and then use the videos to cement your learning. You can then prepare any questions you have prior to the bi-weekly Q&A call.
You can email your questions along with any sample files before the call, and those questions can be discussed during the Q&A calls.
There are two Q&A calls that run concurrently (Group 1 and Group 2), designed to cater for most time zones around the world.
Before the first week of every month, you will receive an email with the Zoom meeting invite to attend the Q&A calls in the month.
The Q&A calls are recorded, and the recordings are shared with you after each call. You can download the video recordings of the Q&A calls and keep them for later reference.
One of the benefits of this style of learning is you can listen to and learn from all the discussion and questions from the other participants.

This course is just brilliant! It really does what’s stated in the title: it will supercharge YOU when using DAX!
The samples and all the materials used are very relevant and helpful in learning the concepts and besides this, Matt’s style of explaining the concepts really helped me understand how to write effective DAX formulas and take advantage of this amazing tool Power BI and also Power Pivot in Excel.
I really loved the way the course is structured, with self-study plus online videos during the week and a weekly Q&A session where Matt answered all our questions and provided additional samples and explanations on that week’s topics.
I highly recommend it to all Excel Power Users and Power BI Users! This course will really make you understand DAX and show how can you leverage it in finding insights and uncover hidden patterns in your data.

I have followed this course conducted by Matt Allignton previously and it really gave me a good start to work with Power BI. As I was coming from Tableau environment, it was vital to understand how Power BI works and its architecture, data modelling etc.
Then I started joining Query sessions of follow-up trainings. I love it. It really helped me to refresh my learnings, and allowed me to discuss my day to day Power BI issues and find some practical solutions. It also helped me to listen to others’ Use Cases and learn from them.
I have already registered & continue with ‘Power Query & DAX training’ online sessions. THANKs for great learning support provided and will continue to join Query sessions in the future too.
Cheers, Roy Dias

I just finished Supercharge Power BI and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone working with Power BI. The beginner coming from Excel will benefit from the book and bridges Matt makes between how Excel works and how very differently Power BI works.
Those are familiar with Power BI will learn how to break bad habits and learn with practical examples and structured, incremental lessons. The class will provide more than a few “Ah Ha” moments where you learn how to solve that problem you’ve been banging your head on for weeks.
Now that I’ve completed the course, I will take advantage of the continuing support of the forum and the ongoing Q&A sessions that I have access to. The Power Query Academy class will be my next training investment.
Thank you again for sharing your knowledge!

I just finished the Supercharge Power BI course and found it to be excellent. I came into the class using Power BI regularly but not knowing much about DAX. With what I learned in this class, I will be able to take my Visuals and Dashboards to a whole new level. The class is very hands on, so you get to run through examples of the material and write DAX formulas (that work). Another tool that I’ve gained from this class is how to fix a formula that doesn’t work by following best practices and understanding filter context.
The class also has materials and lessons on how to use Power Pivot in Excel.
I recommend this class if you want to learn to write DAX for either Power BI or Excel.

This has been a great course for me! Coming with limited practical experience in Power BI and a cursory understanding of DAX, I have picked up a lot of gems from this course.
The course content has helped me clarify pre-existing doubts and shown me the capability of DAX. The fact that Matt’s book doesn’t read like a dry textbook but a practical workbook only complements his excellent teaching style where he simplifies problems with ease.
I have already started applying what I have learnt and am looking forward to signing up for more advanced courses on the subject.
10/10 would recommend!

This course gives a great foundation on DAX for both Power BI and Power Pivot in Excel.
What I really liked about the course is the combination of self-learning and Q&A sessions. With that you can learn on your own pace throughout the week and ask any questions which are still there in the Q&A session.
Based on the questions asked, the Q&A sessions are a great learning platform in themselves, where Matt explains concepts in a clear way and shows how multiple solutions could be used to solve a question and what are pros and cons on the various options.

Great course for Beginner. Matt is well known in Power BI space. He explains difficult DAX concept very elegant way.
If anyone has just started Power BI journey and he/she wants to cover a good ground in DAX then this is the course you need to enroll.

I found this course really interesting to start to learn DAX language in Power BI. The course is really progressive. And as not a English speaker, I found everything very clear, in the book, the videos and the live sessions.
The support of Matt helps a lot in any struggle with the exercises in the book, on the understanding of the concept and on personal applications. It’s a also interesting to hear about the problem of the others learners.

I found this course really interesting to start to learn DAX language in Excel / Power BI. Though I am not in the accounting business but in the projects managing and engineering it enables me to follow purchase orders.
Needed parts pipe fittings and compere lists of material needed purchase orders and material in stock.
To make long story short awesome course.

Although I’m only in the second week of training, this course along with Power Query Academy, Dimensional Models, and Impactful Reports is rounding out my self service training. Highly recommend this course for all your DAX needs.

Supercharge Power BI teaches you how to get the most out of DAX when working with Power BI. The online video instruction and examples sets you work through provide an excellent method to learning DAX. On top of that, Matt’s live sessions offer another way to help you gain the knowledge you need. Thank you, Matt, for an excellent course.

Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge!

I have loved every bit of this course as the book and the videos take you through this journey of discovering the potential that PBI has. Loved the teaching methodology and the layout of the course. Would recommend this course to all the professionals who would like to develop a deeper and better understanding of DAX.

I have spent many frustrated months trying to learn DAX via YouTube but all I could learn was to copy / paste DAX formulas with no understanding. This course gave me a strong foundation in DAX and I’m now capable of building better reports that I understand and can modify to my needs! The flow and timing of the semester was perfect! My only advice to others is to stay disciplined, don’t lag behind, do the exercises and you’ll come out stronger! Can’t wait to continue on this journey! Thank you Matt!!!
