I was working as BI Consultant in leading IT Company and wanted to add on to my knowledge and skills. After all the research based on my experience, demand and time span for learning and implementing things based on new skill, I decided to learn Tableau. I went through to different sites which provided the basic course for Tableau. After going through content ,course material and fee structure, I decided to go for Simplilearn's Tableau course. The course is structured and presented in such a layman way that anyone without any technical Knowledge can easily grasp the content and self-learn. Most amazing part was they were providing access to Tableau along with Licence. Each and every query raised was answered quickly. In addition to above simulation test are also there which are indeed very helpful for further Certification in Tableau. I would really recommend this course if you are keen on learning Tableau. I would like to appreciate and convey my BIG THANKS to the entire Simplilearn team.
