What do I need to take Axis Academy courses?

An internet browser is required. A Qlik Sense environment is required to follow along with the training and to do the exercises (see below).


Can I take a course over multiple sittings?

Yes. Each course saves your place with an automatic bookmark.


Can I try out a test course before buying?

Yes! Just "purchase" the free Qlik Sense Sample Course. This is a free test package that gives you a sense of the depth behind Axis Academy courses, and lets you experience the style and quality you can expect from our course catalog.


What files do I need to take a course? How does Qlik Sense need to be set up?

To follow along with the courses, and to correctly answer the exercises, learners need access to a Qlik Sense server (onto which certain Qlik (.qvf) files have been installed. Qlik Sense 301 requires additional data source files (local text files and specialized Qlik Sense files called .qvds).

Required files are provided with each course and are available once registered. Detailed instructions for setting up files on the Qlik Sense server are also included (what files to install, where to install them, and what permissions need to be provided to learners). This setup is typically the job of a company’s Qlik Sense administrator. However, if you have Qlik Sense Desktop, you should also be able to set up your environment.

What versions of Qlik Sense do the courses use? Are they current?

Although Qlik updates Sense several times a year, the core product remains constant. However, Axis Academy courses are periodically updated and refreshed when significant changes have been made to features or functions. The actual version used to record a course is listed on its detail page.

May I share a course with several users?

No - under no circumstances.

Your license to Axis Academy may include one or more Axis Computer-Based Training (“Axis CBT”) classes (such as, without limitation, Qlik Sense 101, Qlik Sense 201, Qlik Sense 202 and Qlik Sense 301).

A purchase of one Axis CBT class is strictly personal to a single user, and you may not share Axis CBT modules, or any part of them, with other users or make them available to multiple users in any form. For the avoidance of doubt, you may not provide access to Axis CBT to a greater number of users than the sum quantity of licenses purchased from Axis, nor may you reassign license rights between users without express permission from Axis.
