Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make the training relevant to our business?
We use your data sources if possible, and the dashboard we build is yours to keep forever. We also do all we can to ensure the content is tailored to the current level of understanding of the team. If there are specific areas you want to cover we can change up the sessions to skim over some areas and go deep on others, or even mix and match modules from different courses.
Does it matter if my team is in different locations?
Not at all, all of our training is hosted on Zoom and is accessible with any stable internet connection. We also arrange the training session times with your team so that everyone can join regardless of time zone.
Can team members choose which sessions they join?
Yes of course. However, we strongly suggest attending any preceeding modules as there is content in there that we build apon throughout the rest of the course. If people want to drop off at certain points, they are welcome to, we just recommend not joining part of the way through.
Do I need a Google Looker Studio account?
It saves a little bit of time if you sign up to Looker Studio in advance (it’s free), but you don’t need to have used it before or have it linked to any live data sources. There are plenty of example data sources for the exercises to you, and you are also welcome to use your own data if you wish to do so.
What do I do if I’m running late or cannot join a session?
If you are just running late or can’t join for some reason don’t worry! All training sessions are recorded and shared after the course has been completed.
