Statistical Testing Online Course with Statistics for Data Analysis

To organize the english course

Goals:

Providing an overview of the main statistical tests, both parametric and non-parametric, in order to identify the optimal technique in relation to the type of data and the objectives of the analysis.

 

Techniques presented:

Parametric and non-parametric statistical tests, analysis of variance, calculation of test significance.

Cost:

The cost of the entire TEST Online course (5 sessions, for a total of 12 hours and 30 minutes) is 625.00 Euro (excluding VAT) per participant.

Practice:

Practice is planned for each of the topics covered.

 

Prerequisites:

It is a prerequisite to attend an introductory course (scheduled or online) or to have an intermediate knowledge of Statistics for Data Analysis.

 

Duration:

Online course lasting 12 hours and 30 minutes, divided into 5 sessions of 2 hours and 30 minutes each.

Attendance:

Our online courses are delivered live in order to ensure maximum interaction and collaboration between teacher and participants. For this reason, the presence of participants in all lessons is considered essential.

In case of absence from a lesson, the Training Staff will send the learner the points and exercises covered during the missed lesson.

If more than one lesson is missed, the Training Staff reserves the right not to send the student the certificate of participation.

Certificate of attendance:

A certificate of participation will be issued at the end of the course.
