NICF - Statistical Analysis (Blended Learning)

Statistics are applied every day, in research, industry, and government, to become more scientific about decisions that need to be made. Statistical Analysis is "the science of collecting, exploring, and presenting large amounts of data to discover underlying patterns and trends. Thus, many organisations, in their effort to organize data and predict future trends based on information, rely on statistical analysis. Learners will be introduced to statistical data analysis and competent in applied probability, sampling, estimation, hypothesis testing, linear regression, analysis of variance, categorical data analysis, and non-parametric statistics.

NICF - Statistical Analysis (Blended Learning) is a vendor-agnostic and software product, agnostic with learners gaining the knowledge, skills, and abilities in applying statistics for business and data analysis in contrast to the other courses in the market than gaining knowledge, skills, and abilities in a software vendor dependant product functions and features. This modular transfers the knowledge, skills, and abilities related to statistical analytics.

Statistical Analysis is the science and the art of learning from data. As a study, it is concerned with the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, as well as the effective communication and presentation of results relying on data. This program in Statistical Analysis provides you with the necessary tools and conceptual foundations in quantitative reasoning to extract information intelligently from this sea of data. This is essential for the following industries. The training will provide the learners the skills to summarise data using business performance reports and develop business performance dashboards.
