This course introduces the essential components of deep learning. Participants learn how to build deep feedforward, convolutional, and recurrent networks. The neural networks are used to solve problems that include traditional classification, image classification, and time-dependent outcomes. The course also presents practical methods used to enhance training data to produce better models. Lastly, a method for efficiently searching hyperparameters is described.

Skills Gained

  • Define and understand deep learning.
  • Build models using deep learning techniques.
  • Apply models to score (inference) new data.
  • Modify data for better analysis results.
  • Search the hyperparameter space of a deep learning model.

Who Can Benefit

  • Machine learners and those interested in deep learning


  • Before attending this course, you should be acquainted with Microsoft Windows and Windows software. In addition, you should have at least an introductory-level familiarity with basic neural network modeling ideas. You can gain this neural network modeling knowledge by completing either the Neural Networks: Essentials or the Neural Network Modeling course. Previous SAS software experience is helpful but not required.

When does class start/end?

Classes begin promptly at 9:00 am, and typically end at 5:00 pm.

Does the course schedule include a Lunchbreak?

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning. There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

If someone should need to contact you while you are in class, please have them call the center telephone number and leave a message with the receptionist.

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

What does GTR stand for?

GTR stands for Guaranteed to Run; if you see a course with this status, it means this event is confirmed to run. View our GTR page to see our full list of Guaranteed to Run courses.

Good company to work with, flexible to help clients and their needs. easy to communicate with.

The ExitCertified model may need some work. The Zoom link should be a link inside the invite.

Great resources to follow along with the instructor and the virtual facilitation worked very well.

Great experience learning from ExitCertified. I would definitely come back to them for additional training.

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.
