Launch a new career with the Data Science Certificate on your resume

Companies around the world are storing more data than ever before in order to learn about their customers patterns and behaviors.  From online sales to social media trends, there is a vast array of data that is available for companies to learn from.

And, with massive amounts of data there is also a growing need for data professionals to understand how to work with this data and model the insights necessary for a company to learn about their customer base.  Today, we call this profession “data science.”

Data science is a growing field that requires a new set of software tools and skills.  It is a combination of advanced data analysis, critical thinking, and creative problem solving.  ‘R’ software is one of the critical tools for you to get started in data science.

Digital Workshop Center has worked closely with industry experts to create a comprehensive data science curriculum, focused on R basics, working with big data, and visualizing and modeling the results.

Let us help you get started in a new career in data science today!

My instructor was good at giving feedback, I never felt like he was judging my artistic abilities, he was only ever advising how to improve skills and techniques when visiting homework or projects. Overall the classes were really great and I’m bummed it’s over!
