Is there a way around this requirement.
I would hate to lose all the time I have already invested in the course because I dont have a business e-mail address to use the BI Service functionalities. I am hesitant to continue with Section 5 - Excel until I have a better understanding if i can continue the course without a bsuniess e-mail address.

You can get access within 5 minutes.
All you need - just to follow 4 easy steps from course page "Start Here! > Set up the Lab Environment > Signing up for Power BI Service" : "If you are having problems signing up for Power BI with your work email address, one potential workaround is to sign up for an Office 365 trial first and then signing up for Power BI. You will be able to use Power BI even after the Office 365 trial expires."
I've spent just few minutes on registration after few hours of looking for decision how to get working email while I use gmail for this purpose
