The SAS Certified Data Scientist package is an intensive twelve-week bootcamp which includes both levels of the academy:
- SAS Certified Big Data Professional (Level 1)
- SAS Certified Advanced Analytics Professional (Level 2)
Big Data Professional (Level 1)
Students will learn introductory statistics; data management and manipulation; data quality techniques, visual data exploration, and working with SAS, Hadoop, and Hive.
Advanced Analytics Professional (Level 2)
Students will learn a variety of machine learning and predictive modeling techniques, how to apply the techniques to big distributed and in-memory data sets, experimentation in business, optimization, time series forecasting and the essential communication skills necessary to deliver value to the organization.
The course work, hands-on practice and projects will help prepare you for the two exams needed to become a SAS Certified Big Data Professional and the three exams needed to become a SAS Certified Advanced Analytics Professional. Students who earn both credentials (and pass the five exams) also earn the SAS Certified Data Scientist credential. Exams are included in the Academy package.
Below you will see the list of exams you need to pass to earn the credential SAS Certified Data Scientist.
