The course is really helpful for beginners, you don’t really need to have a background in tech for one to take the course.

The course is really helpful for beginners, you don’t really need to have a background in tech for one to take the course.

What I find helpful is the fact that one can ask questions during class and if you are not able to grasp everything at once, the sessions are being recorded and you can refer to them any time.

The instructors are well versed with the course, they are very experienced, the learning materials are very helpful and the practical classes are explained in detail and the instructor can repeat to explain incase one doesn’t understand and home assignments are marked and marks assigned on time, and incase one doesn’t understand the assignment questions they can ask the rest of the class for help or the instructors.

The support is impeccable, always willing and ready to assist.

It is the best course you’ll ever take in your journey towards becoming a data analyst.Be open-minded and be willing to learn!
