Mastering DAX Video Course

This is the video course version of the Mastering DAX workshop.
DAX is the native language of Power BI, Power Pivot for Excel, and SSAS Tabular models in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. The training is aimed at users of Power BI, Power Pivot for Excel, and at Analysis Services developers that want to learn and master the DAX language.

The goal of the course is to teach all the features of DAX, providing the knowledge to write formulas for common and advanced business scenarios. The video course is made up of over 15 hours of lectures, plus another 15-20 hours of individual exercises. You can watch the videos at anytime and the system will keep track of your progress. Within the course you can download the material for all the exercises.

Students have access to a private discussion area where they can interact with the instructors asking questions related to the lectures and the exercises.

  • Andres Sabogal (Nov 28, 2021)

    Great course! It really goes into detail to explain how better implement solutions in reports using Dax. quite friendly fore newbies in Dax.

  • John Thornton (Nov 26, 2021)

    Outstanding course. Great presentation of all the important concepts in DAX, and well thought out exercises to work through

  • Sarita Niruntranont (Nov 23, 2021)

    It is good course for me. There are many parts that I don't know before. Your explanation is very clear. Additional, you have a lot of good exercises for practicing. Liked it.

  • Christian Reyes (Nov 15, 2021)

    Thanks. This is the best

  • Mateusz Boronczyk (Oct 31, 2021)

    must watch and must learn for every person interested in DAX. Absolutely the best course related to DAX or/and Power BI-topics. Sometimes the explanations provided are a little bit convoluted and puzzling, but if so, "Definitive Guide to DAX" comes with help (or sqlbi articles). In the end everything is explained very well and everything is understandable, some topics just need a more time. 5/5. Can't wait to take part in the next sqlbi courses

  • Tim Schierer (Oct 30, 2021)

    Excellent, in-depth, world class training. Best online training I've ever seen.

  • Emir Tutan (Oct 17, 2021)

    I really improved my DAX knowledge with simple and andvaced examples. Well explained basic concepts

  • Ali Asghar Noorani (Oct 6, 2021)

    The best course of DAX on the internet

  • Priyank Shah (Sep 24, 2021)

    Great Course

  • Benjamin Dobbs (Sep 8, 2021)

    Easily the best technical training I've recieved. I can't thank you both enough for such clear and engaging explanations. I feel my DAX is now on a whole new level!

  • Ryan Hom (Aug 22, 2021)

    Exceptionally detailed and well explained advanced DAX concepts. This course has been a key factor in leveling up my DAX skills and implementing advanced solutions in my day to day work. As always, you'd expect nothing less from the masters at SQLBI!

  • Bhaskaran Kannappan (Aug 13, 2021)

    very good session

  • ZHAO WENYAN (Aug 12, 2021)
