Course Description

Ever been handed a giant spreadsheet and have no idea what to do with it? That daunting spreadsheet sometimes looks more like something out of the Matrix rather than usable data. This class takes the fear and anxiety out of data analysis and presents a step-by-step method to scrub, analyze and graphically present what that data is telling you.


    Topics covered by this course include:
  • Scrubbing your data
  • Identifying your data
  • Bar Charts
  • Pie Charts
  • Line Charts
  • Pareto Charts
  • Histograms Charts
  • Scatterplots
  • Boxplots
  • An extensive 2-day multi-part simulation


At the conclusion of this course, participants will have gained hands-on experience in analyzing real-life data. The best part: we encourage participants to bring in their own data and use it for each topic and exercise. Participants who cannot or choose not to bring in their own data will be provided data to work with..


Topics covered in class are relevant to all levels of experience. Our instructors simplify complex topics and present them clearly and concisely. Case studies and in-class exercises allow the participant to combine and utilize concepts learned during the course.
