Workshop: The Power Professional

Introduction

This hands-on workshop is an introduction to the power of data transformation, aimed at professionals in any industry who work with large amounts of data on a regular basis. It is a full-day course that runs from 9:00AM until 4:30PM, at one of our locations in downtown Vancouver.


The course allows participants to work with a seasoned expert to understand how they can leverage some basic data collection and transformation processes. These techniques can save huge amounts of time for those who know them. People who take the course typically discover the massive benefit of "low hanging fruit" that they never knew they could utilize.

They are empowered to get the right data, faster and more accurately than ever before.

Who Should Take This Course?

You often work with a lot of data, on spreadsheets, CSV files, or Access database files.

Engineers waiting on data extracts for analysis, then discovering that the extracts needed data-cleaning or transformation, then losing time getting spreadsheets to do the work.

Managers & Executive doing financial or operational analysis, discovering that the data was not what they expected, and realizing their reporting is flawed.

Researchers in university settings need to collect and transform large amounts of data for analysis. Often they are overwhelmed when the data they receive is not clean, or needs transformation.

Professionals in any discipline can take this course to improve their skills in data transformation and analysis.

What Will I Get by Taking This Course?

After taking this course, you will have real knowledge of what tools and techniques can be used to clean and transform data to support things like reporting, visualizations, and analysis.

1. You will learn how to examine "extract" or other data that has been provided to you.

2. You will learn how to compare and integrate data from many sources.

3. You will learn about data cleaning & transformation, using hands-on examples.

4. Participants will receive a follow up call after the course is completed.
