*** WARNING: High Volume Class, Sign Up Early ***
Tableau is our most popular series classes. A green flag beside a date on the right means that a session has met the minimum enrollment levels and is running. However, it is common for dates for this course to fill weeks in advance. Even if a date has a green flag, you might not be able to get into that session if it is full. To avoid disappointment, it is best to register for this class at least three weeks in advance.

Audience
This two day course will provide you with the skills that will help you be a Tableau power user. It is designed for individuals with experience with the fundamental concepts of Tableau who want to take their skills to the next level. This course is taught using Tableau version 10 software.
