  • Hi, I offer best training on SAP BI with very reasonable fees structure. No hidden charges. All sessions will be online. Daily 1 hour. Sessions will be very interactive. Each batch will have only 4 to 5 members so that every student will get personal attention. All real time scenarios will be covered. Server access will be given to every individual with their own login. Good study material will be provided after each topic. Enough exercise after each topic. Real time like exercise after completion of modeling, extraction and reporting. Interview questions will be covered at the end of course. Mock interview session will be conducted after completion of course. I only provide online training using goto meeting. Total duration 40 Hrs. But As per my experience online training is good, as it is more interactive and you can save recording for daily class. You can refer there recording in future.

    Next batch is starting on 23rd Sep and 1st Oct. After completion of the course, I will be available for any questions, interview related questions, etc. Please let me know if you are interested. If you are interested you can send an email on sap.bi.for.u@gmail.com

    Please let me know your contact number, I will call you.
