About This Class

These days, data analysts are in high demand. That’s probably because it’s estimated that 90% of today’s data was generated in the last two years…. That’s a lot to analyze. If you’re thinking about adding data skills to your professional toolkit, or looking for a whole new career in data, this free class is a great starting point.

Join us for a free, 2-hour class to get your hands dirty with the basics of data analytics. You’ll learn how to ask the right questions of your data and perform basic analytic functions in Google Sheets. Then, apply your new found analytics skills to a real-world dataset and develop recommendations based on your findings.

Bonus: There will be time at the end for a live Q&A with the instructor.

See you in class.
