Tableau training is an important milestone in your analytics journey. Our approach to Tableau training and enablement consists of four phases, each successive phase building from one another. Many companies and individuals are interested in earning the Tableau Certifications. Our training path is designed to help you pass the Tableau Desktop Specialist Certification. Our phased approach includes:

  1. Tableau Self-Study
  2. Formal Tableau Training
    1. Tableau Desktop: Fundamentals of Analysis
    2. Tableau Desktop: Intermediate Analysis
    3. Tableau Desktop: Advanced Analytics
    4. Tableau Server: Managing and Administering Tableau Content
  3. Tableau Mentoring
  4. Ongoing Tableau Support


Tableau provides 1000+ hours of free video content that explores a wide variety of topics from setting data connections to administering Tableau Server. Before you pay to have professional trainers execute a Tableau training program, it is highly recommended that you or your team review the free Tableau video tutorials. In addition, Tableau touts an enthusiastic and helpful community of users, where ideas can be shared, and questions can be answered.

Formal Training (Remote or Onsite):

In our experience, nothing can replace formal Tableau training with a live instructor. Whether you choose to do these trainings remotely or onsite, our trainers can gauge the audience and ensure the class is learning the skills they’ll need to be successful with Tableau. Our instructors increase or decrease the pace of the class based on the individuals in the class, cover skills multiple times if the concepts prove difficult for participants, and have years of consulting experience to reference. Hearing how others have used Tableau in the “real world” can bridge knowledge gaps that training exercises may not.

Our formal Tableau training classes also come with printed and bound materials. On average, we’ll provide approximately 100 pages of materials for each day of training containing demos, workshops, and screenshots to guide the participant every step of the way. We also provide data, starting points, and solutions so that attendees can refresh skills later, as needed.


Tableau mentoring allows users to create complex analytical content, with the assistance of an expert. Mentoring sessions are focused on real challenges and use cases that the attendee needs to complete. These one-on-one or small group sessions use the same methodology our consultants use to solve everyday challenges. That includes:

  1. Holistic examination of the current process and challenges
  2. Consideration of process improvements throughout
  3. Building a solution together step-by-step to ensure knowledge transfer is ongoing and complete
  4. Recap of the solution looking for ways to improve
  5. Implementation of the final solution for long term use

Ongoing Support:

Professional tennis players still have coaches. Your team needs someone to call when they get stuck, come across a situation they’ve never seen, or want an expert to look over their solutions. Our ongoing support programs give your team a group of experts to call whenever they need guidance and advice. Whether they need 30 minutes of assistance troubleshooting a formula, or hours of coaching on a large analytic project, our consultants will be here to help.
