Advanced Analytics & Tools Training
Your own pace, Your own Time
One of the easiest ways to get your foot inside the door of the Analytics Industry is to get yourself SAS certified. It works wonders during Interview shortlisting if your CV mentions you have Base SAS or Advanced SAS certifications. For more information on certifications, click here.
Our SAS modules have been geared to prepare students to clear these certifications; you can opt for classroom trainings-offline as well as online (with complimentary Video subscription) or go with the Video Modules alone.
Module 1 concentrates on the topics tested for Base SAS certification. Module 2 is designed for students preparing for Advanced SAS certification, students directly enrolling for Module 2 (Advanced SAS) should have working knowledge/familiarity of topics covered in Module 1.

First things first...what is SAS?
What UNIX is to the IT industry, SAS can be described as the software around which the whole analytics industry was built......well that may be an exaggeration, but SAS commands on overwhelming market share in the advanced analytics tools. As per an IDC report SAS has a 35% market share, more than double its nearest competitor. It has been around for more than 45 years and is now synonymous with Analytics.
That's all very well, but what does it do?
SAS originally stood for "Statistical Analysis System", which as the name suggests was used for Statistical analysis. Today it has evolved to become a ubiquitous Business Intelligence (BI) tool which is used for Data analysis, reporting, predictive modelling, data mining, econometric and time series analysis...pretty much anything and everything related to Data Analytics.
How do I learn it?
Well, you are at the right place, our trainers have trained thousands of students in SAS for both retail as well as corporate clients before launching this initiative.
