Only consideration is this specific class may need more than just 8 hours to cover it. Richard Deolker is very knowledgeable and able to cater tone of instruction to how the class members will likely use the software.

It was a good class. I would prefer to have an Excel class separate from a PowerBI class. I could have spent the entire day in PowerBI.
