Mastering Alteryx Designer Tools: A Foundational Training is a beginner-level training, designed exclusively for SparkED students, learners and educators with basic analytics knowledge and little to no experience with Alteryx Designer. 


We will dive into the world of data preparation, manipulation, and analysis with the guidance of our Alteryx ACES - Analytics experts and community advocates. Deanna Sanchez, Alteryx ACE and GIS (Geographical Information Systems) expert, will be leading these trainings this upcoming Fall, sharing her expertise on all things data analytics and Designer core tools and functions through hands-on Alteryx Designer application with sample and/or publicly available datasets.


Participants will gain mastery over a variety of Alteryx Designer tools, including Input Data and Output Data Tools, Filter Tool, Union Tool, Parsing Tools, among many others. We'll provide you with real-world scenarios to put your skills to the test and gain practical data analytics and Alteryx experience.
