Event Details


OCTO’s two-day intermediate Tableau course is designed for analysts and District of Columbia agency staff who have a solid working experience with Tableau and want to take it to the next level. You should have a deep understanding of all the fundamental concepts of building worksheets and dashboards, but may have trouble when working with complex issues. The training is for DC government employees only.


1) A perpetual Tableau Desktop Pro license installed on your laptop.

2) Taken OCTO's Tableau Fundamentals class or have commensurate experience.

3) Bring a laptop computer with Tableau Desktop Pro installed, a mouse for your laptop, and a power cord both days.

Unfortunately OCTO does not provide laptops or Tableau Desktop Pro for training (free trial licensing is available from Tableau).

Course objectives:

The training will cover the intermediate concepts of working in Tableau Desktop Pro, which includes: creating an effective agency performance dashboard using layout containers, dashboard design best practices, benchmark calculations, benchmark visualizations, parameters, and dashboard actions.

No charge; included in OCTO’s BI program.
