You are the perfect match when you are…

Are you eager to learn? Do you have an affinity with the world of Data & AI? Are you result-oriented? Analytically strong? Then this track might be for you.

Basic knowledge

It’s important that you have some analytical aptitude (for example, a knack for mathematics). Experience with tools like Excel or programming languages is definitely a plus.

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: you don’t see problems but challenges. You are assertive, communicative and eager to learn. You can handle setbacks and are flexible.


We believe in age diversity, so there is no such thing as too young or too old. Everyone is welcome!


This training takes place in Dutch or English. The study material is always in English. A good command of the English language is therefore also important.

Laptop or computer

Preferably Office 365 or 2021, but you can also participate with an earlier version (after 2010). You will not be able to attend this training with a Mac. Install the latest version of Power BI on your computer.

This is how you will learn

Online Environment

You will go through the Data & AI modules independently through an online learning environment. You will also receive comprehensive guides with additional resources and other customized learning materials.

Support and guidance

You’ll get live, online career skills training, and meet your fellow students and the Techionista Team during weekly open coffees. Of course, we’ll provide you with a handy schedule to help you plan.


You’re not just working independently and online. You’ll also meet three times at a fun location for inspiration, to meet role models, and to take on a challenging Data & AI challenge.

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 understandable. The group was diverse, so different perspectives were covered. The storytelling part had extra added value because you can also apply that outside of Power BI. In the end, a good foundation was laid to build beautiful, clear reports and dashboards.”
