About This Class

Why are Tableau skills important? We’re glad you asked. According to MIT, the human brain can process an image in just 13 milliseconds. To be an effective data storyteller, you need to understand the best visualization tools to capture your audience’s attention.

Join us for a free, 2-hour class to get hands-on practice with the basics of Tableau and find out if a career in data is the right path for you.

You’ll learn basic data visualization techniques and tools used to describe, analyze, and communicate data in a business setting. Then, apply what you’ve learned to a real-world dataset inTableau to hone your skills. Bonus: there will be time at the end for live Q&A with the instructor.

We’ll see you in class.
