I'm interested in enrolling in the BIDA™ program. I'm using Mac, and Mac does not support Power BI. How can I proceed?
We recommend downloading Parallels to use Power BI and Power Pivot on your Mac device. You can see more information here. Power BI is also available with limited functionality online (https://app.powerbi.com/). All other applications required in the BIDA™ program are supported on Mac devices.
