Training Success Elements

  • Learn an entirely new set of hard and soft skills.
  • Learn on your own schedule, not on someone else’s schedule.
  • Get a college-issued Data Literacy Certificate at completion.
  • Learn by doing rather than by watching someone else do it.
  • Guided hands-on exercises build your competency and confidence and provide a feeling of accomplishment.
  • You have a personal tutor to help you, when needed.

Overview of Training

This self-paced training program is 80 hours in length and it is all hands-on learning. Your personal situation will determine how long it will take you to graduate.

Trainees learn about data, data file formats, and relational and non-relational databases. Emphasis is placed on Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs), which are used in virtually all industries and organizations to store data about employees, products, services, inventory, financial transactions, etc. Trainees also learn the fundamentals of data mining, statistical methods, data analysis, and data visualization. They also learn about data governance, quality, and controls. Upon completing this course, trainees understand how data is acquired, cleaned, stored, visualized, analyzed, presented, and used to make better business decisions.

At the same time as trainees learn new hard skills, they develop important soft skills, including the ability to focus, pay attention to detail, communicate, solve problems, use logic and make correct decisions, plan ahead and do it right the first time, persevere, learn from failure, and adapt to changing conditions, among others.

What Our Trainees Say About Us

The program is great

“I cannot compliment enough any training that involves students actually working on the problems rather than just listening.” A. S.

One of my most engaging courses

“The Computational Literacy For Modern Careers course offered by NCLab was one of the most engaging courses I took. I particularly enjoyed how interactive the course was. I found myself thinking about the lessons in my free time, trying to walk through problems in my head so that I would be ready for more difficult material when I logged back in. It was the perfect balance of challenging and rewarding. NCLab made computer programming approachable, which was especially helpful for me, since I had very little prior experience with coding.”  — F.E.

I’m in control of my pace of learning.

“NCLab allows you to work at your own pace which makes learning easier. It also deals with a lot of hands-on learning and practicing writing code which has made me a more confident computer programmer. Overall NCLab is a great program.” — A.S.

It taught me the basics of algorithmic thinking.

“The course is set up in such a way that it’s actually enjoyable to progress through the sections and try to figure out the best way to do things. Despite learning so much, I always felt like I was playing a puzzle game rather than learning how to think like a computer.” — W.C.

I didn’t think learning could be fun until now.

“The methodology of this course taught me to code though a game that required me to bring the robot home through a maze using programming principles. It was an incredibly fun and helpful way to learn the material.” – DD

The idea of coding used to give me a lot of anxiety.

“The NCLab Computational Literacy for Modern Careers course that I am currently taking has made me want to pursue a career in coding. The course goes in depth on what goes into the code instead of making the students memorize everything. The idea of coding used to give me a lot of anxiety, but now I am only wanting to learn more.” — K.A.
