Tableau Training:
In-Person or Online

Tableau is a data visualization tool that allows you to create a wide variety of charts, graphs, illustrations and dashboards. It pulls in static data from Excel, MS Access, and delimited text files -- as well as larger datasets stored in servers such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL. Whether you're in business, non-profit, or government (see sfgov.org'sTableau visualizations), learning Tableau will give you an indispensable tool to produce and present eye-catching and insightful data visualizations. Our Tableau training covers everything from navigating the interface and connecting to data to creating the kinds of cutting-edge visualizations that you won't find in Excel or Crystal Reports. We offer "Fundamentals" Tableau training for those who are just getting started and an advanced class for those who are already familiar. Both classes are offered in-person at our downtown San Francisco office as well as online with a live instructor.

Rated 4.6/5 based on 426 student reviews.

It was great course for those who are beginning with Tableau. I have tried Udemy and other online courses but nothing can be compared to the in person training. I cannot wait to start using Tableau for all my visualization needs. I highly recommend who are starting with Tableau.

Very thorough guidance through the basic functions of Tableau. Great attention to detail regarding all the intricacies of each option within the software. It seemed like a daunting task to master this application but she made it seems easy.
- Alex Bishop SmartBiz, San Francisco

It was very thorough. I liked that the instructor showed us how to do everything through her screen situated next to ours. It was informal in that we could interrupt and ask questions which was helpful. Instructor was good about answering a question and bringing it back to the purpose of the lesson. No tangents! Love that. I am excited to bring all this info back to the data I use at work.
- Lauren Graves, University of San Francisco, San Francisco

Really thorough. Super helpful to be in person walking through everything and the instructor was willing to walk over to your computer and immediately spot what was off. I feel like I now have a very good understanding of what is possible in Tableau and understand how some of the dashbards I've interacted with were designed on the back end. Loved how many visualizations we walked through with our one dataset.
- Emily, Unity, San Francisco

It was great. Lots of information. Book is exactly what we were covered which makes it an amazing reference for the future.
- Heydi Garcia, UCSF, San Francisco

Instructor is very knowledgeable and patient with teaching Tableau Fundamentals.
- Allison Jing Huang, Public Health Institure, Oakland

Very good introduction. Nice pace. Teacher was very good at not assuming that anyone had any particular level of understanding of the product. There was lots of information covered. She made sure to reiterate some of the information which I think will make it easier to remember.
