Welcome to ONLC Training Centers

Tableau® Training Classes & Certification

If there’s one thing businesses and organizations aren’t short on, it’s data. Data is everywhere—on-site, in the cloud, and all points in between. With ONLC’s Tableau® live, online instructor-led, or self-study On-Demand course options, all that information goes from several disparate and directionless points to focused pieces of business intelligence (BI).

Tableau builds its data sets by integrating with data aggregation platforms (i.e., CSV, Excel, SharePoint, Active Directory) and pulling information from web services, APIs, and even the cloud. The sheer volume and applicability of data makes responsibly collecting it and analyzing it essential.

ONLC’s course offerings take students through the basics of Tableau’s interactive software on up through advanced skills. Under the tutelage of experienced instructors and following a curriculum built toward certification, our Tableau courses will provide students with the blueprint for compiling, assessing, and acting upon BI insights at their disposal.

Tableau courses are below or contact an ONLC Advisor via chat or 1-800-288-8221 (weekdays) for individual guidance.
