Visually displaying data in an elegant way to tell a complex story is becoming one of the most sought after skills in the data science industry.
Our support team have been there and done that - they are experienced practitioners of data science in various fields such as Utilities, Retail and Financial Services; with a solid academic background.
The course is built around solving actual problems whilst learning about the latest visualisation and dashboard building techniques.
EXPLORE prides itself on the practicality of the course. Participants must be able to apply the skills/knowledge that they acquired in your everyday job to impact their business.
Participants will have extended access to the material that are covered in the course, allowing them to revisit the techniques to keep it fresh in their mind.
Students will learn the art of visualising data and building attractive dashboards in Power BI to tell powerful stories. This will include gathering data from various sources and connecting it all in Power BI, creating measures with the data to calculate important metrics and using built-in and custom visuals to build a dynamic and interactive dashboard.Download Full Syllabus
Students will explore the art of visualisation and when to use which visuals. They will then get to grips with Power BI by going through the basics, importing the data, cleaning it and calculating important metrics.
We take teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect with topics on a profound level. With experience in the field and the classroom, our data science instructors are unmatched. Simply put: students learn from the best.

Jason holds a Master's in Physics and loves to explore the way the universe works. He's recently found a home in data science, and now likes to build self-driving cars for fun. He currently works in the content creation side of the academy, working towards bringing Data Science to all parts of South Africa.
Dewald is an actuary and senior data scientist. He was one of the first brave souls to join the EXPLORE ship in 2016. He is managing EXPLORE's learning platform, Athena, and leading the corporate training - 2/3 day bootcamps to upskill employees.
Complex technologies and programming languages involved in data science make it hard for non-technical people to understand it. That’s when data visualization comes into play and allows those less technical to grasp what is being said.
Dashboards enable us to create this visual story. Power BI has been one of the leaders in the industry when it comes to dashboarding software.
