Power BI Black Belt Series

    Hello to all!

    As a new PBI user, I'm wondering if the Power BI Black Belt Series is a good option for intermediate-level training program. From the description the series do not cover custom Power Query functions using the M language. I'd appreciate your input on this.

    Thanks!

    If you want to learn M-Code then Chris Webb covers this in his book "Power Query for Power BI and Excel", as does Ken Puls "M is for (data) monkey".

    I am currently taking the Black Belt Series online and I highly recommend it for "intermediate-level training". Even if you are already using PBI, you are likely to learn something new in each course. Whether you learn the details you are looking for on "M" or some other really helpful feature you weren't aware of, it's worth the investment. Just be aware that you have 30 days...if you sign up for one course at a time, sequentially, you'll have 30 days for each...or if you sign up for all four at once you will only have 30 days to complete all four!​
