Training

There are several outlets available for learning to use Tableau.

To get started, please take the free Getting Started on line training offered by Tableau.

To be able to become a Tableau Publisher, you will need more formal training. First, please review the Publishing & Security section of this website. Afterwards, the Fundamentals and Advanced classes can be taken in three ways. Tableau offers virtual “on-site” classroom training on line, and well as classroom training at one of their centers, like Charlotte. Previously, Duke brought a Tableau trainer to campus to train our publishers community. We will periodically offer this or other forms of training, and the class will be posted on this website.

Currently, there is no Duke support staff available to assist developers with report development. However, an extensive library of how-to documentation is available on the Tableau website.

Additional training options are listed below.

Free online training internet-based recorded sessions.

Free real-time online learning sessions that are instructor led and scheduled for a specific date, time and topic. Check the website for dates and times.
