Power BI Training

The Information Centre is responsible for training to support the use of Microsoft Power BI at the University of Aberdeen.  Please note at the moment access to Power BI Dashboards is initially limited to the Senior Management Team​, Heads of School, Directors​, School Administration Managers​, Deans of Education, Research and Student Recruitment​, and to a limited number of other users and analysts.  It is planned that this access will be widened further in due course as part of the Data and Business Intelligence Project.

Our training includes the following:

  • Introduction to the Data Environment.  This training must be completed before a user is permitted access to the Power BI Dashboards. This course provides an introduction to the Data Environment at the University of Aberdeen, including the Power BI system and associated data sources, and the Information Centre.
  • Using Power BI Dashboards. This training is tailored one-to-one sessions featuring a walkthrough of our Power BI Dashboards, letting the user know how to navigate the dashboard environment and use the dashboards to gain insight into the subject and supporting data.  This training should normally take approximately 30 minutes.
  • Dashboard In A Day.  This training is aimed at users who want to use Microsoft Power BI to transform data and create reports and dashboards from this data.  This training would normally be delivered in two half-day sessions.
