What’s the difference in the belts?

There are 4 belts, one belt for each section. 

  • The first belt is the Blue Belt. In this section, you’ll receive an introduction to Power BI, start creating visuals and publishing reports. 
  • The second belt is the Purple Belt. As a rule, all data needs to be organized prior to building reports and dashboards.  In this section, you’ll start data modeling and be introduced to advanced visualizations and DAX (Data Analysis Expressions.) 
  • The third belt is the Brown Belt. This section continues down the data modeling path, using a more advanced approach to data modeling and DAX.
  • The final section is the Black Belt. In this section, you’ll learn about Custom Visuals, Sharing and Security.

Where do I start?

You only need to sign-up for the course and start watching videos.  The first section will walk you through where to get the software, sample files and anything else you may need to learn.
