R Programming Beginner - Training Course

Learn the basic concepts of R programming for data analysis

Classes as per schedules.
R is a programming language specifically developed for statistical data analysis 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 the R Beginner and the R Programming Intermediate course together where possible. You will learn how to apply a variety of techniques in the Intermediate course. Learn the fundamental concepts required to get you started using R scripts. View the full course outline below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Course Introduction

Our R courses were designed by Tamara Shatar, who holds a PhD in Agricultural Data Science. She focused her extensive experience and skills in modelling using machine learning, simulation and other techniques to create a course with depth and applicability.

The course is consistently well-reviewed by students.

"I found this 1 day course to be packed full of information - a very heavy load but masterfully delivered. 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 Beginner Sydney Remote

What is R?

R is an open source and free programming language that was developed for statistical analysis and the production of high-quality graphics. It is commonly used by statisticians and academics internationally who make up part of the extensive and 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 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 the 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.
