About your instructor
George Peck, The Ablaze Group
Two things make or break a course, whether taken in person or virtrually: the organization of the course, and the instructor. Sacrifice either one, and you sacrifice the whole course. Not surprisingly, there's a whole lot of "low cost" or "free" training out there that sacrifices one or both of these characteristics. You simply have to ask yourself, "How much does my job and career depend on me knowing Tableau well?" If the answer is "Not much," then keep looking. But, if you want proven instructional materials, and a presenter who knows Tableau like the back of his hand, and can impart that knowledge, keep reading.
George comes with plenty of rich BI experience. A while back, he wrote a whole bunch of Crystal Reports books. More recently, he wrote two Tableau: The Official Guide books, officially endorsed by Tableau Software. All these books were published by the prominent publisher, McGraw-Hill. More recently, George has authored several 2- and 3-day in-person Tableau courses, as well as everything here on VirtualTableauTraining.com
George has been teaching computer software for well over 20 years, with over 6 years dedicated to Tableau. He knows the software as well, or better, than anyone in the industry and imparts that knowldge with a friendly, relaxing approach.

Tableau Training Rave Reviews
We hired the Ablaze Group to help roll out Tableau to our US organization. George created a custom course for our management that explained showed them what Tableau was and helped them see potential ways they could use Tableau in their business. It got rave reviews internally. George then came on-site to teach the Two Day Fundamentals class. The class was fun and effective. People were creating reports and dashboards right after finishing the training. We are starting to look at our data differently and asking - How can I show that in a more meaningful way? It was a great experience!

George Peck is very knowledgeable about Tableau and is able to communicate the concepts to students. Our Level 1 class had people from widely different organizations, non-profit to municipalities to business organizations. The group also had a wide range of experience from a few weeks to several years. There was a good balance of time for individual questions while still completing the course syllabus. We had a lot of hands-on time to learn the concepts. Having time to show each other our workbooks was also very interesting. I highly recommend the training offered by Ablaze Group.

So Much Better Than Trying To Learn On My Own
I attended George’s Intermediate Tableau class and it was so much better than trying to learn stuff on my own. It’s also great to be able to have a teacher who clearly has experience with Tableau because you get to pick up on the little time and sanity saving tips to make your life easier. Definitely recommend this class for anyone who is struggling to learn some topics on their own!

Invaluable Tableau Dashboard Lessons
My experience with the Ablaze Group Tableau Training provided me with invaluable lessons, and I am thankful to have been a part of George’s Level 1 training class. George used some real life data sources to create revealing dashboards and stories. These made the hands-on exercises very engaging. George was able to break down the complexities of Tableau which made the training not as overwhelming. Receiving a hardcopy workbook, an electronic PDF, and data files was also very helpful. With a great sense of humor, and relative past experiences, George is a wonderful teacher and was very responsive to feedback and questions.
