What to expect

Our training days are relaxed and informal, covering a lot of ground in a fun and stimulating way. Bring along a wifi-enabled laptop and come prepared to ask questions and get stuck in with hands-on exercises.

We will be working with data from a demo account on the day. It will help if you have experience with Google Analytics and Data Studio and some familiarity with SQL.

Frequently asked questions

Who is the course aimed at?
If you are looking to use Google BigQuery in your steps towards creating a truly scalable data warehouse, this course is for you.
What are the course timings?
Our courses last for a day. We normally crack on at around 10:00am but we ask delegates to be there a bit earlier to ensure that everyone is ready by that time (breakfast is available beforehand, from 8am!). We normally finish at around 4:00-4:30pm but this depends on the group’s pace of learning, number of attendees – never more than 10 – and so on. We want to ensure that no-one walks away thinking that it wasn’t worth their time and money! 🙂
Do I need a Google BigQuery account?
You don’t need a BigQuery / GCP account to attend the course as we will provide you with examples and take you through the features and reports covered in the course content. However, if you have access to an account already, you’d be able to look your own data and get a better understanding on where the gaps might be.
What do I do if I’m running late?
If you are just running late due to traffic, train delays, etc. Don’t panic! Just give us a ring and we will let the trainer know.
What happens if I need to cancel?
If you want to cancel or postpone the course, please check our cancellation policy below. Or you can also drop us a line at training@measurelab.co.uk ** Cancellation policy: ** Refunds and transfers can be requested up to 7 days before the event.

What people say

Excellent training. Hands on and practical. Sitting in a room actually going through the reports and doing real examples in the GA account made it so much easier to understand. One of the best and most useful training courses I have been on.
This was incredibly useful, thank you. I found the sections on API particularly useful, and I think it was good to have this in the afternoon, building on the work of the morning. Pitched at the right level, and all questions were answered really well. Thank you!
It is pretty rare to find a trainer so knowledgeable AND articulate… Thank you for a great session, it will take time to process everything we’ve learn but this was amazing. Thanks!
Very interesting teardown of some fundamental issues around GA setup that can heavily skew interpretation, and how to best tackle those.
The training was excellent and very beneficial to the team.
Dan (our teacher) knew pretty much everything. He could’ve been smug, but he was thoughtful, comprehensive and spoke with great clarity. Good work!
