Business analysts, project managers and solution developers who require a practical approach to analysing and modelling data through e-learning. Data Analysis is also an Analytical Skills module on the BCS Advanced Diploma in Business Analysis.
The Data Analysis course offers a deep dive into two key approaches to analysing and modelling data – analysis class modelling and data normalisation.
The course has recently been updated to include a module on data analytics, the interrogating and interpreting of data for the purpose of business decision making. The data analytics component looks at how data can be analysed with a business focus, offering critical insights which can drive decision making and pinpoint why some projects succeed and others fail. Techniques used to validate data against stated requirements are also explored.
The Data Analysis e-learning course contains detailed course content with an audio voice-over provided by an experienced tutor. The course provides numerous multiple choice and scenario based questions which may be used to reinforce learning through self-assessment.
In line with all of our e-learning products, the course is designed to provide flexible navigation. Learners can choose to follow the learning path through the course itself or jump to different sections as required. The product also offers dedicated contact with AssistKD course tutors should further help be needed.
For the duration of the course, delegates can also request access to an electronic version of the Data Analysis course manual that is provided with virtual courses.
