We can host this training at your preferred location. Contact us!

This five day course is aimed at those who are familiar with data analysis and are interested in learning about how Data Science, Analytics, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used to yield value from data assets.

This course will be of interest if you are interested in developing your own skills to move from analytics to Data Science, or if you are working with Data Scientists and want to learn more about what’s possible.

You will be introduced to key concepts and tools for use in Data Science, including typical Data Science Project lifecycles, potential applications & project pitfalls, relevant aspects of data governance and ethics, roles and responsibilities, Machine Learning and AI model development, exploratory analysis and visualisation, as well as techniques and strategies for model deployment.

Throughout the course you will engage in activities and discussions with one of our Data Science technical specialists. Theoretical modules are complimented with comprehensive practical labs.

Delegates must be existing Python Data users who have attended;

Python for Data Handling (QADHPYTHON)

or have a similar level of knowledge with NumPy and Pandas.

Additionally, we recommend that delegates have attended;

Introduction to Data Science for Data Professionals (QAIDSDP)

in order to understand key data science, machine learning, and AI governance requirements before developing Machine Learning models.

Target Audience

Members of the audience are required to have a some technical expertise such as table structure, working with tabular data in Python, and simple data analysis.

They may be Mid/Senior Leadership seeking a greater understanding of how to implement Data Science within their organization.

They may come from other technical backgrounds such as Data Analysts, Software Developers, and Data Engineers who either work with Data Scientists or are using this course in their journey towards training as a Data Scientist.

In the latter case, audience members may ask for recommendations for their next steps in training towards becoming Data Scientists. We recommend the following refreshed courses which are due to launch in 2023 and 2024 in this suggested sequence:
