All courses available in-class or via remote login
Courses running remotely, please call for in-class bookings.Our Data Analytics courses scheduled for Adelaide will be delivered live online by our experienced Data Scientist. We also offer training for workplaces across South Australia
Understanding how to use various programs to analyse and visualise data has never been more important. Learning a programming language, gives you access to a wide range of tools and techniques to manipulate, analyse and visualise data.Fundamentals of R, the first course in our Data Analytics series, will give you a foundational understanding of R. You will learn how to write basic syntax, understand R data types and objects, use functions and perform basic modelling and prediction. You can then build on this to develop your capability in R with our Beginner, Intermediate and Machine Learning courses.
Meet your Trainer
Tamara Shatar holds a PhD in Agricultural Data Science. She has extensive experience, including many years working as a research scientist focused on data analysis, modelling using machine learning, simulation and other techniques. While working in both academia and at the CSIRO, part of her role included teaching a variety of data analysis skills. Tamara has designed our first Data Analytics Training Course, Using R, to provide beginners with the fundamental tools necessary to start using R for data analysis. She is consistently well reviewed by her students.
What is R?
R is an open source and free programming language that was developed for statistical analysis and production of high-quality graphics. It has long been popular with statisticians and academics who make up part of the large active user community behind R. This community has contributed over 15,000 packages that extend the base functionality of R, making it easy to implement a vast range of techniques for data manipulation, analysis and visualisation.
Why learn R?
Rather than being a point and click tool, R is a language that is used by writing reusable scripts, enabling automation and repeatable workflows. Because it is a language, it offers a huge amount of flexibility in manipulating data and the ability to write new functions. Even without a background in programming, it is relatively easy to get up and running once you know the basics.
