    ​To the PowerBI Community,

    I would consider myself a Beginner at PowerBI as our company hasn't really utilized it yet and there hasn't been extensive training on it. I have played around in it and I think I know the basics, but would love to hear any recommendations on the free webinars available to get more up to speed with PowerBI.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi @Benjamin Cleaver:

    I don't have any webinars, but I have other valuable resources you may be interested in: 

    (1) The following will bring you up-to-speed on everything Microsoft Tabular Engine related (i.e., PowerBI, Excel Power Pivot, SSAS): https://www.sqlbi.com/guides/dax/
    This will cover the products, data modeling, and the expression language​
    (2) This will cover everything PowerBI related from the analyst level to an admin: https://www.edx.org/course/analyzing-and-visualizing-data-with-power-bi-3

    Hope this helps!

    Enterprise DNA is worth checking out. He has several  free You Tube Videos if you search for the name and creates new free webinars and seminars online regularly if you follow us his newsletter. On his website where he offers membership and courses, there is a couple of free courses that are really worth going through for a beginner. The Ultimate Beginners Guide to Power BI and The Ultimate Beginners Guide to DAX. I would  highly recommend both.  If you were looking to purchase a course in the future I would recommend his not only because his lessons are very well done, he keeps it simple and his data models basic and clean,  but he also has a financial background so most of his lessons are dealing with regular financial calculations and visualization scenarios which are much more relevant to us in accounting them other courses are. It does make it more easier to learn when you are trying to learn something new and they are talking your language. His website can be found here:  https://enterprisedna.co/ and his lessons here: http://portal.enterprisedna.co/ but be sure to search for 'Enterprise DNA' on You Tube for several past webinars and videos.
