Overview

On this 1 day accelerated Firebrand course for SAS' Visual Statistics: Interactive Model Building, you'll explore SAS Visual Statistics and how to use it in interactive and exploratory ways to build predictive models.

You'll be immersed in Firebrand's curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, allowing you to learn and retain information faster than traditional courses.

Your expert Firebrand instructor will also take you through how to use SAS visual statistics to:

  • create a project
  • determine useful preferences and settings
  • create segments, or clusters, of input variables
  • perform regression and logistic regression modelling
  • perform decision tree modelling
  • perform stratified model fitting
  • compare models
  • generate score code

You'll benefit from 24-hour lab access, allowing you to practice and apply your knowledge whenever you want.

If you're a predictive modeler, business analyst or data scientist who uses SAS Visual Analytics 7.2 and 7.3, this course is ideal for you.

"The course was delivered well, and the content was made interesting, with the diversity of smaller group sessions and whole group sessions. Due to current situations, it was delivered virtually, however it was adapted well to an online environment "
J.S., BT. (20/7/2020 (Monday) to 21/7/2020 (Tuesday))

"The instructor was amazing and kept me interested for those 3 days in what could be a not so interesting subject"
Jenni Bland, NA. (16/7/2020 (Thursday) to 18/7/2020 (Saturday))

"I would like to thank the instructors and Firebrand staff who have made my experience here great despite current Covid climates. This has been one of the best courses I have been on and I am grateful for the instructor to be teaching it. The course was very intense - make no mistake, it is not a course that you should just turn up to and assume you will pass - it requires effort, but the instructor helped and explained everything I was struggling with. I have no doubt I wouldnt have the passed the exam without the instructor's assistance and guidance. Another point here I would like to add, I know remote working is probably the future, but on-site learning cannot be beaten, it lets you stay focused and concentrate - key requirements for this course."
Martin Barrow. (11/5/2020 (Monday) to 17/5/2020 (Sunday))

"Intensive deep knowledge training by a very positive and motivated trainer. The instructor really helped me get my head around AWS, and define solid basements for the certification. Outstanding flexibility & creativity facing the audiance as he needed to face strong network/security guys of the same company, with weak system/db background."
B.B., Orange Cyber Defense. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

"2nd experience with Firebrand, and with no doubts these are one of the highest quality trainings I ever attended. "
V.P., Orange Cyberdefense Belgium. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))
