“The instructors were incredible, and in fact, it is what I think makes this program so great. Yes, the content was appropriate and relevant, but it was the instructors who made it timely, relevant and immediately applicable. I can now with confidence ask questions, collaborate with other analysts, and inform leaders and stakeholders appropriately.” Read more

This is a very important program. You can get the same training through the SAS institute, but it’s more expensive and is not necessarily going to focus on healthcare data.

“The online learning platform, course design (semi-synchronous with periodic real-time sessions) and overall attention to customer service are excellent.”
