Training Methodology

“We believe those who advance the furthest in life tend to be those who acquire knowledge at both ends of the spectrum and acquire it in a variety of ways.”

Classroom Learning

Theory

As a data scientist, your ability to build reliable and efficient models that can be applied to real-world problems depends on how well you know your theoretical concepts.

Practical

Data science is a very hands-on and practical field that requires a solid foundation in programming and visualisation skills. Practical subjects like Python, SQL and Power BI in the syllabus helps gain this expertise.
