North Metropolitan TAFE is introducing a new course for anyone responsible for processing data sets, or responsible for data mining.
Lecturer at North Metropolitan TAFE, Maryam Shahabi said the Applied Data Analysis course was suited to people working in a medium-to-large organisation who were responsible for processing data sets, data mining, or machine learning activities.
“If you’re a creative thinker and curious about the hidden insights in the mountains of data we now have available, our skill set will show you how to turn that raw data into powerful stories that can be your businesses’ most valuable asset,” Dr Shahabi said.
“The more data you have, the better business decisions you can make.”
She said the course was designed for novices and those wanting to go to the next level in their career as a data analyst.
“The course starts from the basics, such as Microsoft Excel, working up to Python, Panda, NumPy and Matplotlib — industry-standard tools to collate, analyse and visualise data,” Dr Shahabi said.
“Students will also gain a thorough understanding of SQL, one of the most popular tools for analysing data, as well as Power BI and Azure from Microsoft.”
She said the evening classes comprised just four hours a week for two semesters and were suitable for those working full-time.
“Completion of this skill set leads to a Diploma of Information Technology (Advanced Programing),” Dr Shahabi said.
Classes begin on 28 July and further information can be accessed at this PS News link.
