Long Description

Certificate in Data Modelling, Analysis and Visualisation (Mayo Campus) This module is for existing and prospective business users such as data analysts, business decision makers and information workers to upgrade existing skills to leverage Excel 2016, Power BI and SharePoint Online as a Self-Service Business Intelligence Platform.
