About The Certified Data Scientist Program

The data scientist role is an offshoot of the statistician role that includes the use of advanced analytics technologies, including machine learning and predictive modeling, to provide insights beyond statistical analysis. The demand for data science skills has grown significantly in recent years as companies look to glean useful information from the voluminous amounts of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data that a large enterprise produces and collects — collectively referred to as big data.

A data scientist uses large amounts of data to develop hypotheses, make inferences and hone in on customer, business and market trends. The data scientist must be able to communicate how to use analytics data to drive business decisions that may include changing course, improving a process or product, or creating new services or products.

Course Objective

This is a complete course that provides you detailed understanding of data science, encompasses basic statistical concepts to advanced analytics and predictive modeling techniques, along with project life cycle, data acquisition, analysis, statistical methods and machine learning.

What do past students say about the Certified Data Scientist course?

Learn from practitioners, not from trainers.

“R classes trained by Databyte Academy, has been more than meeting my expectations. The trainer gave a very detailed explanation and examples of case studies, both in the fundamental of statistics and also the concept around Business Analytics. I’ve gained an in-depth knowledge on how to translate a real-world business problem into statistics problem.”

Ivan Gan Manager, Naviworks S/B

I have gained valuable experience and knowledge from the R-Programming classes. I liked the delivery of the training. Mr. Sunit was very helpful and made the course easier to follow even for a beginner. He can answer every question asked and even provided us with examples that we can easily relate to. Looking forward to other courses.

Firstly, I’m satisfied with the content structure and the pace of the R for Data Science class. Mr. Sunit Prasad managed to present the course contents in an organised and interesting manner. He made sure to assess and build the foundation of the students in R programming before proceeding to teach us about the commonly used statistical analysis in the data science industry. Overall, this 5-day R for Data Science course met my expectations and I’m looking forward to completing the remainder of the Certified Data Scientist course.
