No, there are no prerequisites for enrolling. Everything you need to know is included in the program.
We start the whole learning process from scratch. This is one of the things that make us different from other platforms that consider mathematics and statistics a prerequisite.
We explain it all, step-by-step, including how to download and install the necessary software (e.g. Excel, Anaconda, Jupyter Notebook, Python, R, MySQL, Tableau Public, etc.)
This is one of the ‘harder’ questions.
What usually happens is that most students prefer to pick the parts that are interesting/relevant for them. Therefore, we can’t really give you an exact time frame as the concept of ‘completing the program’ seems different for every student.
However, there are several main factors which drive the duration:
The biggest determinant seems to be 1) whether the student is working.
Employed people usually devote several hours per week to the program, thus the duration of their studies is longer.
Regarding 2) motivation, we are trying to incentivize students to be more engaged, but at the end of the day, that depends on the individual.
Finally, 3) prior experience – this is important. Some students have done a bit of programming, others – statistics, so they can skip some parts. Overall, they spend less time on the program as a whole and can complete it within a month or two. Assuming that a student starts from scratch, works part-time, and completes all courses and exercises, 6-7 months are sufficient.
However, keep in mind that we expand our program on almost monthly bases, so the time frame to ‘complete the program’ is continuously increasing.
Yes, you can.
We recommend using a computer for taking the course as the programming parts of the course are not well suited for learning on a mobile device.
This means that any prospective employer can contact us or visit verify certification URL to receive official confirmation that you have completed the data science program and receive a list of the skills you have acquired.
For the time being, our platform shows progress for the individual courses!.Once you have completed all individual courses, you will have completed the whole program.
Since our product is online based, we communicate mainly through email and our platform.
