Overview

This course is the foundation for the Microsoft Certificate PL-900 “Microsoft Power Platform Fundamentals”, and focuses on the various apps which make up the Power Platform (Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents and the AI Builder), together with how they can be used by other programs, apps and services.

No prior knowledge is required – we’ll even see how to get a free Power Platform trial!

There are regular quizzes to help you remember the information, so you can be sure that you are learning.

Once you have completed this course, you will have a good introductory knowledge of Power Platform and what the capacities of these different apps are. And with some practice, you could even go for the official Microsoft certification PL-900 – wouldn’t that look good on your CV or resume? And if you are an American college student, you might even get college credit for passing that exam.

Completing this course will help you:

Who is the course for?

You need to know how to use a computer, and hopefully know how to use a spreadsheet.
No prior knowledge of Microsoft’s Power Platform or any of its apps are required
You need Windows 7 SP1 or above, or for other machines an internet browser (Edge or Chrome preferred) to access most of the apps used in this course.
You need Windows 8 or 10 to access Power BI Desktop; however, you can access Power BI Server on other devices.

Learning Path

We’ll start off with looking at Power BI. If you have a PC, we’ll download for free Power BI Desktop, and look at the various processes which you can use on the Power BI Desktop. Then, we’ll look at the Power BI Service (available through any modern web browser), see what you can do with this, and how they compare.

We’ll then look at Power Apps. We’ll get a free Community edition and/or free trial of Power Apps, and get some sample data using the Dataverse (previously known as the Common Data Service). We’ll then create each of the three different types of Power Apps: Canvas, model-driven, and portals, while looking at the various types of connectors you can use to connect to different data sources.

Next up is Power Automate. Using our free Community edition, we’ll create several automated flows, and the different triggers and actions you can use.

The next app is Power Virtual Agents. We’ll create a basic chatbot which can ask and answer a few questions. We’ll then see how you can find out how well it is performing.

We will have a brief look at the AI Builder, and how models such as the business card reader, object detection model, form processing model and prediction model can be integrated into Power Apps and Power Automate.

We’ll finish off by looking at how Power Platform can extend other business solutions, and some Power Platform administration and security.
