Why this program?

At this point and time there aren’t any formal training programs at our local universities on Big Data. For aspiring professions who can’t afford to go abroad and study, they are left with no option but to self learn. This course is for people who want to develop or advance their careers in the data space without having to travel abroad to learn. It’s also for people who’d like to become independent consultants or entrepreneurs within the data niche.

A Little About our career journeys

In this course we have documented exactly what steps we took to achieve this outcome. We share tips for overcoming hurdles that you may be forced to overcome while providing shortcuts to show you all the people, places, and things that really matter; in hopes that you won’t have to waste time exploring some of the fruitless options like we did. We will also give you access to online learning resources from affiliates and you will not be charged anything extra. Along the way, and based on your skill competency, we will assign you paid projects from our lab to kick start your data-prenuership journey!
