R for Data Science
Statistical Training Courses Dublin, Ireland
This course focusses on organising your data, visualisation, and summarising outputs in graphical or report format.
Participants need not have any experience using R for this course but should be familiar working with data. Many organisations and research groups have to deal with large amounts of data from multiple sources. They need tools for database access and for merging different data sources. They have to clean, restructure, summarise and visualise data and they want to report their findings in web-based and printed reports. All this needs to be done using one piece of software to enable efficient and consistent reporting. R is ideal for this purpose.
The course is instructor-led with regular practical exercises where you will work with the data, and seek advice from experienced R practitioners in an online environment. In-person courses will resume in good time.
Please register your interest in this course, or reserve your place, by emailing David at firstname.lastname@example.org or clicking the button below – we will revert at the earliest opportunity. Class size is small with two highly qualified and experienced instructors – see below for further information.
The cost of the two-day course is €900 for commercial attendees and €700 for academic attendees, including course notes.
The Course will take place from 9am to 5pm each day
