*** WARNING: High Volume Class, Sign Up Early ***
Tableau is our most popular series of 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.

Course Overview
This 2-day class on Tableau Prep will show you how to combine, shape and clean your data for analysis. Cleaning data can be a time-consuming task. Tableau Prep makes that job easier by providing a visual interface that lets you see the result of your changes. In addition, your steps can be saved and replayed every time you have a new extract that needs to be cleaned and transformed. Tableau Prep makes it easy for non-programmers to prepare raw data for analysis Tableau Desktop.

This class is for individuals responsible for accessing organizational data and transforming it for analysis in Tableau.

Individuals should have at least 3 months of experience with Tableau or should have taken our Tableau Desktop Level 1: Introduction class shown on the link below:
