This great-value online training course has been expertly designed to help individuals and business understand factor analysis and its link to linear regression. The course explores Principal Components Analysis (PCA) in detail and clearly explains its function as a cookie cutter technique to solve factor extraction. You will also get a clear insight into how PCA relates to machine learning.
Who Is The Course For?
No previous statistics experience is required to sign up for the course, although good basic maths skills are a prerequisite. The training is designed to appeal to data analysts who wish to empower themselves to make the leap from summarising data to explaining and predicting data. The course is also a useful tool for aspiring data scientists and any professionals who wish to apply the principles of factor analysis and linear regression to solve relevant problems they may encounter in their working lives.
How Does It Work?
Online learning provides students with the freedom and flexibility to acquire their new skillset in their own time and at their own pace. With no weekly class to attend or deadlines to meet, learners can optimise their chances of successful study by accessing the course material at the time that suits them best. This makes the course an ideal solution for busy professionals who need to fit learning around existing commitments.
