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. 

"The course was really good, Tamara is an excellent trainer and was able to answer my questions, the resources she provided to help after the course are excellent. I was a bit overwhelmed at the beginning trying to learn a new language, but Tamara put me at ease and went through the content at a pace that I could understand." - R Basics Brisbane 

"Interesting material and very well run. Thanks again Tamara." -R Intermediate Brisbane Remote

What is Remote Training?

We offer some of our more specialist courses in a remote format. At Nexacu, this means you will learn the same content as you would in our classrooms and the same trainer will deliver training but all students will log in from their own premises and device. Our Data Scientist, Tamara will host the Data Analytics training sessions, walking you through the basics of R and answering questions and encouraging discussion along the way.


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.

Excellent course which was very well presented by Steve. Looking forward to getting hands on and applying the learnings. Thanks -Power BI Beginner Brisbane
David - Power BI Beginner, .
Steven was very clear and passionate about the course. I really enjoyed it and I feel much more confident using it after the course. Thank you so much. -Power BI Beginner Brisbane
Myrna - Power BI Beginner, .
The faciitator was great and very engaging. Was awesome that he kept checking in with how everyone was progressing to make sure nobody was left behind! The course was informative. However, I found that a large amount of the session I had already accomplished in my own time. So a more detailed description on the course overview/syllabus documents would be useful, explaining that it was an introductory level review for each of the components - as I feel the intermediate session would have been more benificial to me. -Power BI Beginner Melbourne
