Survival Data Mining Using SAS(R) Enterprise Miner(TM)

Course Details
Tuition (USD): $1,200.00 • Classroom (2 days)
This advanced course covers predictive hazard modeling for customer history data. Designed for analysts, the course uses SAS Enterprise Miner to illustrate survival data mining methods and their practical implementation. The structure of this courses allows for a personalized learning experience through a combination of instructor-led class time and structured self-study. The course consists of classroom instruction, digital course notes, case studies with solutions, a virtual lab with software for practice, and a half-day Live Web session to discuss questions about the material during the course.

What's included?

  • one day in class to cover key topics
  • case studies with solutions posted online
  • half-day Live Web review session
  • access to a SAS instructor for questions
  • online forum for support

This course can also be scheduled as a Live Web class. For details, view the
