What Our Students Say

Course Review by Student
Vishal Jain

I joined the Tableau course from Techcanvass after going through similar courses from other Institutes. One of the key aspects which I liked was the number of real-life case studies and projects. So there are case studies, mini-projects, and one complete project. The course was hands-on and was conducted by an experienced professional, who has worked for several years in the data visualization field. I would recommend all to learn tableau online from Techcanvass only.

Vhairavi Sen

The course is a good choice for a person like me who has no background working with data and visualizations. I was able to apply the topics covered during the first week to my work. Techcanvass does a great job of breaking down tough topics and providing a practical, real-world context for them. I also liked the portal which has lots of learning aid including mini-projects and projects. It also has mock tests for Tableau certifications

Value Delivery Analyst at PandoCorp Private Limited

I am a business analyst and I attended the Tableau e learning. I was asked by my company to get trained on tableau as our customer wanted me to work on a data analytics project as a Business Analyst. I found the training to be hands-on and with lots of real-life cases which helped me to connect easily. Another important aspect of the training was – how to choose a visualization in a given scenario. Thanks, Techcanvass team for the wonderful portal with lots of useful resources.
