Data Analyst Career Certificate Program

The self-paced, online Data Analyst Career Certificate Program provides you with a college career certificate and the knowledge, practical experience, competency and confidence to qualify for high-paying data analyst jobs.

According to Indeed Inc., there are currently more than 186,000 data analytics job openings in the United States. The median salary for Data Analysts in the United states is $103,250 (Robert Half Human Resources Firm). Virtually all enterprises have now reached “data overload” and need data analysts to help them make sense of massive amounts of information.

What do Data Analysts do? Data analysts are professionals who collect, process and perform analyses on enterprises’ huge quantities of information to help them save time, resources, money and to make better business decisions.

Who is this program for? This program is suitable for anyone seeking to enhance their career or for anyone who is looking for a new career in a high-demand occupation. Participants will learn how to do it all in data analytics: analysis of data, interpreting data, and making predictions.

How does this training program work? This online program utilizes active, self-paced, Learn-By-Doing training. This innovative approach provides bite-sized lessons, requiring participants to show they have mastered each concept by completing exercises before moving on to the next module. Upon enrolling, trainees are assigned a personal instructor who meets with them regularly and is always available.

How soon can I complete this training program? This is a 320 to 400 hour training program, consisting of between 4 or 5 courses, depending on whether or not trainees have prior programming experience. Each course takes an average of 80 hours to complete. While the majority of our trainees complete the training program in under a year, many of our trainees complete it in as little as 6 months. The time it takes to complete depends on the hours of study you have available to study each week.

Do I need any prerequisites before enrolling in this training program? Trainees should have a high school diploma prior to beginning the program. A programming background shortens the time required to complete the training but is not required.
