R Programming Basics - 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 R Basics 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

instructor tamara

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, R Basics, 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." - R Basics 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?
