Overview

On this accelerated IBM Introduction to Data Science course, you'll learn the foundational skills of a Data Scientist: what the role entails and the basics behind data analysis and data-driven decisions. 

In just 2 days, you'll build knowledge on key concepts like big data, statistical analysis, and relational databases, and gain familiarity with various open-source tools and data science programs used by data scientists, like Jupyter Notebooks, RStudio, GitHub, and SQL. You'll also learn:

  • What programming languages they can execute, their features and limitations
  • The major steps involved in tackling a data science problem
  • Work with real databases, real data science tools, and real-world datasets

At the end of this course, you'll receive a Specialisation Completion Certificate, and a Digital Badge from IBM, recognising you as a specialist in data science foundations. Through Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you'll get access to courseware and train with certified instructors, all in a distraction-free environment. 

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 102779 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"Prince 2 Foundation & Practitioner course is intensive but well run and I passed!"
C.P.. (2/4/2021 (Friday) to 4/4/2021 (Sunday))

"Excellent course content. Week went really quickly"
Darren Crofts, Gizmo Networking. (2/4/2021 (Friday) to 7/4/2021 (Wednesday))

"I cannot commend Firebrand enough for how well the hybrid classroom was practiced. Everyone in the classroom was socially distanced, with 8 more people online, and we all felt comfortable, attended to, and safe, whilst learning a lot in an accelerated fashion. I was able to take the course over bank holiday, and returned to the office a certified project manager. Highly recommend receiving training with Firebrand."
Phoebe Savvides, Firebrand Training. (2/4/2021 (Friday) to 4/4/2021 (Sunday))

"My experience with Firebrand Training was superb. I really enjoyed the course."
Balwinder Jeer, CQC. (2/4/2021 (Friday) to 4/4/2021 (Sunday))

"This course has helped to build on some basic to little knowledge. It will help me in heading up a unit with enough practical knowledge of virtual currency. The input was enjoyable and practical."
Adam Wilkins, Derbyshire Constabulary. (6/4/2021 (Tuesday) to 8/4/2021 (Thursday))
