What if You Could Master Data Cleaning and Transformation to Completely Automate Business Intelligence and Reporting?

Power Query is the most important data analysis tool since PivotTables

It allows you to clean, reshape, and combine your data with ease, no matter where it comes from.

And it comes FREE with the Excel and Power BI software that you already own.

Learning to use Power Query means less time spent manipulating data and more time analyzing it to gain powerful insights and make better decisions

Until now, building BI solutions has been a painful, repetitive process requiring a great deal of manual effort to clean, filter, and format data before it can even be used.

And updates have been tedious and error prone.

Power Query will save you hours of time gathering and preparing your data before loading it into your data model.

Hear Some Power Query Academy Success Stories

I don’t think I can express enough how good I feel your Academy and services are. Love that you have the online course, support at your finger-tips and then can have a subscription for years to come at a reasonable rate... I chose [your course] because I felt it was the whole package and not just pieces... With Power Query, our group has been blown away. I was able to create a self-serve tool from Power Query that is totally amazing for us and our clients. I am very happy with what I have been able to do for our group [and am] now encouraging more to take the course... THANK YOU for making my heart beat so happily and proud.

Wanda Moyer

Thanks for your Power Query training. I work as a school business manager in southwest Wyoming. I enrolled in your course in November and have been working on writing as many queries as I can think of to automate or speed up processes. In January or February, I applied for an award "recognizing ingenuity and resourcefulness" from the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO). I noticed that no one had submitted a Power Query solution to automation, so I applied using the things that you two have taught. Well, today ASBO informed me that I won their Pinnacle Award. I will also be presenting for two hours at their conference on my project of writing queries. Thanks to you for this award.

John A. Williams

I started playing with Power Query some months ago, and then took a 1/2 day introduction course... this ignited a spark that led me to 'M is for (Data) Monkey'. In the intervening 2 months, I have developed queries that are saving me upwards of 15 hours per month, on repetitive analyses needed as part of our month end financial close. I have also become nearly evangelical in my love of Power Query, and of your book. I will shortly start holding "lunch & learns" for others in our Finance & Accounting groups, and recommending both 'M is for (Data) Monkey', and now your Power Query Academy, to any and all interested. So, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you! Your work is making a positive impact in ways in which I doubt you're even aware.

Andrea A.

The Power Query Academy course is really great... Really well done and lots more tricks than I expected to see before I decided to purchase it. It is the small stuff that speeds up my workflow... My biggest regret is that I didn’t buy it earlier, since it could have saved me time thru the well-structured learning in the course as opposed to my random learning before that thru blogs and Google.

Thomas H.

The course is absolutely phenomenal, and I have been able to save my company hundreds of hours already by automating processes using Power Query!

Alex F.

I am approaching the end of my first year and plan to renew. It's such a valuable resource for me! We have only a few people at work who know anything about Power Query so when I have a question, I turn to Ken and Miguel for help.

    I loved the course and have implemented SO MANY THINGS from it. I've already saved at least 2 days of manual reformatting of data each month by implementing things that I learned as I was working through the course. Now that I have been through it all, and really understood the examples in the Date and Time Techniques of how to pass parameters into a query, I'll be going back through the modules on Parameters and Custom Functions with a clearer idea of how I can implement those, as well! SO grateful for the work that has been put into creating this course. It has changed my work-life for the better. In fact, I was able to share a simple data-cleanup query for a text file format our POS system generates -- my colleague thought I was a genius, and I saved him at least 30 minutes of cleanup time.

    Hugely enjoyable course with loads of useful content - certainly will make me stop and think for a change before creating any more PQ solutions. Really liked the modular approach, breaking down the subject matter into usable 'topic chunks' which makes it more like a set of building blocks for creating better, more predictable results. Ken's vocal delivery is great - all his enthusiasm for the subject comes thru' in spades. Can't wait to get my hands on the book!

    I have been exposed to Power Query tools and its capabilities by none other than Mr Excel Bill Jelen in one of his tips videos on his YouTube channel, but he did mention about the authors of the tip: Ken Pulse and Miguel Escobar and their first book: M For Data Monkey. I immediately bought the Ebook on my kindle and started reading it. Since then I have completely automated reporting at my workplace with help of Power Query, it takes few minutes instead of few hours to prepare complex MIS which has more than three divisions, this also includes complex divisional balance sheet and Cashflow statement. I have been following Ken and Miguel's blog ever since and following each and every tip they publish (also I am a connection on LinkedIn with both of them). When I first heard about this course, I was more than excited and I had decided to pre-enrol into it as I was sure it was worth every dime and every second invested in it. I am glad that I did that. I have learned so many new things like parameters and functions and M Language, the capabilities of Power Query goes way beyond the traditional way of using it once you know a little bit more about M code. Miguel and Ken have done fantastic Job and their approach to explaining each concept is truly professional and quite easy to grasp. While many advanced concepts I have come across were not easy to digest at first glance but I will be referring them again in future. Following are my suggestions for improving the experience next time: Screen capture zooming, All Miguel's videos had zoom in effect which was nice as I could see the specific part of screen especially formulas while it was not the case with Ken's videos, zooming into specific areas of the screen is quite important as people may not have big screens to watch video lessons all the time.. I would highly recommend this course who wants to master data cleaning and transformation and completely automate business intelligence. before I was exposed to Power Query I used to struggle with complex VBA coding which is difficult to master compared to Power Query (believe me you will not have to rely on VBA for data manipulation anymore once you know PQ) Thank you, Ken and Miguel for this awesome course, I wish you guys soon release the second edition of M for Data Money book and also new courses on Power BI, DAX and Power Pivot/Data Modelling... Cheers Prashant Panchal

    Found modules to lead me a step at a time to understand Power Query. Modules make it simple to go back and review. Look forward to getting to each new module. I just completed the videos (which means I am half done, now I have to redo the videos and practice each video). I purchased the original "M is for (Data) Money" but never seemed to be able to work my way through the material without getting stuck (or not motivated enough to keep going). I found the videos kept me motivated and help me understand the issues I had in the original book.

Do I Have Other Options?


Yes, of course you do! Here are some other ways you can begin to leverage Power Query in Excel and Power BI:

Trial and Error: Not a bad way to learn. But you'll spend lots of time that you could be investing somewhere else. Ask yourself: "How quickly do I want results?"

Other Power Query Courses: There are many excellent teachers out there. But how often is the course material updated, and is the trainer there to help answer your questions?

Hiring a Consultant: Probably the fastest way to get a fully-built solution. But do you want to rely on a consultant every time you have a question, update a report, or build a new data model?
