Power BI is a business analytics service provided by Microsoft that allows businesses to analyze and visualize data in a more effective and efficient way. It enables organizations to connect to various data sources, transform and clean the data, and create interactive and insightful reports and dashboards.

The exam voucher be included in the training amount. Microsoft certificates are highly recognized by the tech industry and obtaining them proves that you have acquired the necessary skills to work in the field of Data!

Our study materials consist of E-learning materials. The courses are given in Dutch and English by Microsoft-certified trainers and before you are ready to go for the exam, you’ll need self-study hours. On average, people spend about 40 to 80 hours on their self-study. 

You can use the Free Premium Data Camp account provided by Techionista Academy and Microsoft Learn content in order to prepare. We’ll be giving guidance on which content is best to learn efficiently. Your free Data Camp account can also be used after your Microsoft exam to learn other tech topics you’re interested in, such as Python, ChatGPT, SQL, C++ and many more!

Are you eager to learn? Do you have an affinity with the world of Data & AI? Are you result driven? Analytical savvy? Then this track might be the thing for you.


It is important that you have some analytical skills (for example, that you have a feeling for mathematics). However, we composed the training in such a way that even if you have no experience in IT yet, you should be able to complete this training.

Academic level

We estimate that you need to have an academic (thinking) level for this training. You do not have to prove this to us with a University diploma; it is also possible that you reached this level through your work experience.


You have a growth mindset, instead of problems you only see challenges. You are assertive and communicative. You are eager to learn and stress-resistant. You can deal with setbacks and therefore you are flexible.


We believe in age diversity, so everyone is welcome. However: if you want to participate with the STAP budget, then you have to be between 18 and 67 years old (you are not yet entitled to a state pension).


This training is given in Dutch and in English. The study materials are in English. A good understanding of the English language is therefore also important.

What was her experience?

“The Power BI training from Techionista Academy was incredibly fun to attend. The trainer’s explanations were clear, and she used relevant examples to make the material more comprehensible. The group was diverse, which ensured that different perspectives were discussed. The storytelling part had extra added value, because you can apply that outside of Power BI too. Ultimately, a good foundation is laid to build beautiful, clear reports and dashboards.”
