We are excited to invite you to participate in our Power BI Basics training. Following her April 2022 Webinar Microsoft Power BI®: Creating an Interactive Text and Data Visualization Tool for a 21st Century Workforce, instructor Cynthia Sundahl, MPA, MA will be offering a 4 session virtual training that takes attendees through the steps to create a report and share it on the web.

This course will provide participants with the skills necessary to take data from excel files and turn it into a finished, multi-page report ready to use internally or publish on the web. You will follow along as the instructor guides you through the process of creating a sample report. By the end of the course, you will know how to: import and format data, set up a data model, add visuals and filters, set up your page layout for PC and mobile view, and load your completed report to the Power Bi service and embed it into your organization’s website.

The course will focus on data and visualizations frequently used by workforce development and community service organizations. Regional and time series data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau will form the core of the data model. Visualizations (including maps, charts and tables) will present summary level data that can be drilled down on for specific insights.


  • All attendees will need to install POWER BI DESKTOP (free) on a computer running MICROSOFT WINDOWS 8 or newer.
  • Please ensure you have installed the August 2022 release (a link to download and install the correct version will be provided to registrants the week of September 6th).
  • Note: The final step of publishing and embedding a report will be demonstrated using the Power BI Service and a demo website, but attendees are not required to have a licensed account at the time of the course.
