Since the course is just for your organization, there is flexibility with respect to how the course is offered. For example, the course could be a 2-day class, daily 90 minute live sessions with online learning (e.g., videos) in between sessions, or a one month class that meets weekly (with asynchronous online learning in between sessions).

At the end of the course, each employee will be eligible to take the appropriate DSPA certification exam.


Gain practical insights via real-life cases instructor facilitated team-based exercises and games, where your team can experience using a data science process, and how one can improve your data science team’s effectiveness in generating actionable insight.

Furthermore, the class also discusses:

  • Common missteps and misunderstandings, including misstep symptoms
  • Prescriptive guidance to avoid having the project go off track from those missteps
