Corporate Courses

Certified Data Science Practitioner (CDSP)

Course Outline

In this course, you will implement data science techniques in order to address business issues.
You will:
• Use data science principles to address business issues.
• Apply the extract, transform, and load (ETL) process to prepare datasets.
• Use multiple techniques to analyze data and extract valuable insights.
• Design a machine learning approach to address business issues.
• Train, tune, and evaluate classification models.
• Train, tune, and evaluate regression and forecasting models.
• Train, tune, and evaluate clustering models.
• Finalize a data science project by presenting models to an audience, putting models into production, and monitoring model performance.




To ensure your success in this course, you should have at least a high-level understanding of fundamental data science concepts, including, but not limited to: types of data, data science roles, the overall data science lifecycle, and the benefits and challenges of data science. You can obtain this level of knowledge by taking the CertNexus DSBIZ™ (Exam DSZ-110) course.

You should have also have experience with high-level programming languages like Python. Being comfortable using fundamental Python data science libraries like NumPy and pandas is highly recommended. You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the Logical Operations course Using Data Science Tools in Python® . In addition to programming, you should also have experience working with databases, including querying languages like SQL. Several Logical Operations courses can help you attain this experience:
• Database Design: A Modern Approach
• SQL Querying: Fundamentals (Second Edition)
• SQL Querying: Advanced (Second Edition)
