Working with Tableau isn’t just lucrative – it’s fun! And unlike most data analysis tools, Tableau uses a drag-and-drop interface, so you don’t need to be a programmer to learn Tableau. If you can learn Excel, you can learn Tableau.
Learn and Apply Fundamental Skills
Get a step-by-step walk-through of the fundamentals of data visualization and data discovery with Tableau. You’ll learn how to:
•Sort, filter, and group your data
•Create tables, bar charts, line charts
•Show location using geographic maps
•Aggregate with sum, average, min, max, and counts
•Create new fields using calculations
•Combine data using joins, blends, unions, and relationships.
But just watching the videos won’t make you an expert. For mastery, you need to go hands-on by answering questions that reinforce the skills from the videos. To go hands-on, you’ll install the Public version of the Tableau software, which is available for free and easy to install on Mac or Windows. Then you’ll download the sample data sets included with the course, and Tableau to answer questions about this sample data.

Analytics Professional
Let me tell you about myself, and why I became interested in Tableau and Power BI.
I was the office Excel and SharePoint expert, creating macros and writing JavaScript to streamline workflows and create reports. I was a valued contributor to the team, but for a while I didn’t seem to be learning new skills. A friend gave me a bit of advice – “don’t confuse seven years of experience with one year of experience seven times.” Friends were mentioning that there was a lot of buzz around Hadoop and Big Data, so I decided to go back to school.
I earned a Masters in Analytics from NC State in 2013 and now work as a data analyst in the health insurance industry. Using tools such as SAS, Tableau, and Teradata, I conduct analysis to help my company improve healthcare affordability and customer engagement.
