We love to teach people how to use Tableau. Prior to joining Moxy Analytics, we taught people via blogs, presentations, the Community Forums, and conversations on social media for several years. One of the first things we did at Moxy Analytics was to design a beginner bootcamp so that we could provide a more end-to-end training experience. In the past year, we’ve had the privilege of offering that training several times to both public and private audiences.



But we’re also known for teaching some of the more advanced capabilities of Tableau—things like data densification, advanced charts such as sankeys, advanced data modelling, innovative dashboard designs, and advanced calculated fields—topics that are too advanced for a beginner bootcamp. Since we first announced our beginner training, many people have requested a course that dives into these more advanced topics, so…


We are excited to finally announce that we are now offering an Advanced Tableau Bootcamp!!!!



Like our beginner bootcamp, this training will be made available both publicly and to private audiences. Our first public training is scheduled for September 17 – September 26 (for more details or to register, see Advanced Tableau Bootcamp: Visualizing Data the Flerlage Way)


Advanced Tableau Bootcamp

While there is no shortage of great introductory Tableau courses, advanced courses, on the other hand, are not easy to find. We feel that our course is one of a kind. We’ll teach you how to build advanced charts and maps, advanced dashboard development, parameter actions, sets/set control/set actions, advanced data modeling, advanced calculated fields, Tableau Prep, workbook performance optimization, and tons of great tips and techniques.


The course contains a whopping 21 hours of content provided over the course of six 3.5-hour sessions. Our goal is to take you from intermediate to advanced as quickly as possible (though that will also require a bit of practice on your part 😉). Here’s an outline of the topics covered:
