Course Details
Code: SADS3
Tuition (USD): $16,000.00 • Classroom

This SAS Academy for Data Science package includes both levels of the academy:

  • SAS Certified Big Data Professional (Level 1)
  • SAS Certified Advanced Analytics Professional (Level 2)
In the Big Data Professional level, students learn critical SAS programming skills, introductory statistics, data quality techniques, and essential communication skills. Students also learn how to manage and manipulate data, explore data visually, and work with SAS, Hadoop, and Hive.

In the Advanced Analytics Professional level, students learn a variety of machine learning and predictive modeling techniques as well as how to apply the techniques to big distributed and in-memory data sets. Students also learn about experimentation in business, optimization, and time series forecasting.

The coursework, hands-on practice, and projects help prepare students for the two exams needed to become a SAS Certified Big Data Professional and the three exams needed to become a SAS Certified Advanced Analytics Professional. Students who earn both credentials also earn the SAS Certified Data Scientist credential. Exams are included in the Academy package.
