About this Event

Please note this event is open to TRSM/Ryerson students only.

There are a limited quantity of tickets available exclusively to TRSM students, Non-TRSM students, TRSM Alumni and Ryerson/TRSM faculty/staff members. At this time, we do not accept any individuals outside of Ryerson University, however, we are working on this. Please check-in with us in 2020.

If you SIGN UP, the expectation is that you SHOW UP. If you can no longer attend, you MUST log back into Eventbrite and CANCEL your ticket. Instructions on how to cancel your ticket can be found here.

This session will be hosted virtually. All Ryerson attendees will be sent invitation details and instructions to your Ryerson email.

Kindly note that we will be tracking participation in the session by asking that you submit all completed work to a Google Drive folder. You MUST upload completed work into this folder for full consideration of the Power BI Badge (File Name: Full Name - Power BI 2).

**SIGN UP SHOW UP POLICY**

'Sign-up Show-up' Policy Effective June 1st, 2020.

This policy targets students who are consistently signing up for Bootcamps and not attending them.

All students who sign up for a Bootcamp and do not show up without cancelling their tickets will be placed on a "no-show" list. There is a three-strike system that will be effective immediately. Once you receive your third strike, you will no longer be able to register for future bootcamps and our team will need to cancel your ticket immediately.

If you are unable to attend the Bootcamp you have signed up for, you must cancel your ticket by going back into Eventbrite and doing so at least 24-hours in advance to avoid getting on the no-show list.

We are putting this policy in place given the high demand for Bootcamps and long waiting lists of students who want to attend but are unable to do so due to a consistent number of no-shows.

Take your Excel skills to the next level in this exciting Power BI Bootcamp that will teach you how to use Business Intelligence tools in Excel. Companies in the 21st century are relying on technology more than ever to help meet the changing demands of consumers around the world. Learn the ways in which executives and managers in top corporations use Business Intelligence to analyze data across their organization to make fast and informed business decisions. Build upon your existing Excel skills to create dynamic and visual reports using logical arguments and performing scenario-based analysis.

FAQs:

How do I receive a badge?

Due to new check-in procedures to validate whether a student attended the sessions from beginning to end, we are only issuing badges to students who completed Power of Excel, Tableau, Python, or R as of May 2019.

If you are interested in attaining the badge, please complete the Bootcamps again and use it as an opportunity to test and refresh your memory on the skills.

Can I receive a Badge if I attend different series of a Bootcamp? ( Excel SAF Level 1 and 2 but BTM Level 3)?

No, you must attend all 3 series of the Bootcamp in order to qualify for a badge. For example, you must attend SAF Level 1-3 or BTM Level 1-3. Students who attend different series will not qualify.

How can I cancel my ticket?

Please follow the instructions here to cancel your Eventbrite ticket. Please note, you can only cancel your ticket on a computer.

In the event that a Bootcamp is sold out and you have a legitimate reason to attend, please send a request to trsmbootcamps@ryerson.ca and we will place your name on a waiting list and do our best to accommodate. Please note that placement is not guaranteed.

If you require any special accommodations, please inform trsmbootcamps@ryerson.ca
