Application of Data Analysis Essentials Certificate

This certificate is Part 2 of the Data Analyst Certificates Bundle — a comprehensive five-part program that provides training and practical guidance on the topic of data analytics.

This Certificate offers hands-on experience regarding how to analyze data and calculate fundamental aspects of your data sets. This certificate program provides the core concepts and definitions of data analytics, which explain the anatomy of data as a medium, and provides fundamental statistical analysis techniques for beginning to glean useful information from data.

First, you will learn the different types of variables that make up a data set and perform meaningful calculations to discover and explore relationships that yield insights. Then we will delve into recognizing these qualities in their different forms and how to utilize them in practical business situations.

Finally, you will be introduced to one of the most powerful tools available for analyzing data: the open-source "R" platform. You will be guided through an actual use case for analyzing data using R and complete your learning by seeing how the statistical concepts you've just learned can be applied in a real-world example.

Learning Labs: This is an interactive learning program that includes bonus hands-on learning labs. You will practice using various technologies for preparing, analyzing and managing datasets in the real world. * Learning labs are optional and award no CPE credit.

Once you’ve completed the learning, you will be awarded with a certificate in the form of a digital badge. A digital badge is a validated, graphical representation of your significant achievement. There is a description of the specific knowledge and skills you’ve demonstrated or achieved to earn it. As digital badges become the global standard for recognizing and publicizing professional development, your accepted badge will allow you to distinguish yourself in the marketplace and show your commitment to life-long learning and competency.
