Fundamentals of R Programming - Training Course

Learn the basic concepts of R programming for data analysis

All classes delivered remotely, for in-class sessions please call us.
R is a programming language specifically developed for the statistical analysis of data and for producing graphical output. The functionality of the base R package is greatly extended by user-contributed packages which contain a range of functions. There is often more than one way to achieve an outcome in R.
This introductory R course, is the first in our series of R courses and provides an overview of the basics and introduces some of the functions and packages that can be used to work with data. The aim of this course is to provide a foundational:
  • understanding of R
  • R syntax
  • data types and objects. 
We recommend completing Fundamentals and the R Programming Beginner course together where possible. You will learn how to apply a variety of techniques on the Beginner course. Learn the key concepts required to get you started using R scripts. View the full course outline below.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. 

"I found this 1 day course to be packed full of information - a very heavy load but masterfully delivered by Tamara. It is very clear that we were learning from someone who is extremely capable and experienced with both the software solution AND it's real
world application. I liken the experience to taking golf lessons from Tiger Woods or basketball coaching from Michael Jordan. All questions were addressed as if they were always part of the planned course content - seamless. Thank you so much for this opportunity." -Fundamentals of R Sydney Remote


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 make data-driven decisions?

A range of different industries have adopted R to make sense of their data. From customer segmentation, to demand forecasting, R can be used to improve operations by uncovering patterns within data, using a range of statistical methods, including sophisticated machine-learning techniques.

What is Remote Training?

Remote training at Nexacu, means our team of experienced trainers will deliver your training live online. With remote learning students can access our usual classroom training courses via video conferencing, ask questions, participate in discussion and share their screen with the trainer if they need help at any point. Students have the same level of participation and access to the trainer as they would in classroom training sessions.

Lauren - Power BI DAX, .
Lot of content, Michael was easy to follow and very helpful. I have lots to take back to work an d practice. I note that we didn't go through the book as it is laid out and there are probably a lot of exercises that we didn't get time to do. I expect that this will need to be done in our own time later. I think this course can be stretched over 2 days. -Power BI DAX Sydney

This course was very informative for someone who is very familiar with Excel and self-taught but wanting to fill in the gaps and expand their knowledge even more. Steven was a brilliant trainer - he spoke clearly and slowly (which really helps when doing this course online) and made sure that everyone in the session was following each step. And his virtual chocolate frogs were much appreciated! Thank you so much! -Excel Advanced Brisbane
