Advanced Tableau

Bascom Bridge’s  Advanced Tableau training course teaches students to take Tableau to the next level with advanced calculations, enhanced interactivity, and advanced analytics. Attendees will learn how to use actions to create interactive dashboards, apply cutting-edge formatting techniques, implement dashboard best practices, and much more.



All students will:

  • Work with calculations and advanced interactivity
  • Using actions to create interactive dashboards
  • Display data & advanced analytics
  • Learn advanced formatting & dashboard best practices
  • Use Tableau server

Optional modules that may be added (course length would be affected) or swapped for other units in the course:

  • Using Custom SQL
  • Advanced Chart Types (usually focus on what’s most relevant to your needs)
  • Clustering
  • Storypoints
  • Performance Tuning
  • Some Performance Best Practices


Advanced Tableau training students should have taken Bascom Bridge’s  introductory Tableau course, or have the equivalent knowledge.


All attendees receive comprehensive courseware.


  • Tableau Desktop
  • Microsoft Excel 2010 or later (2013 or later recommended)
  • Internet access
  • Related data and lab files that Accelebrate would provide
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
