Selecting The Right Training Program Is Worth The Effort.

Given the number of available offerings, the selection process may appear daunting but comparing the characteristics of the various offerings will quickly narrow the options. Below are ten characteristics that we think you should carefully consider in your selection process.

Will the training guarantee me a job?

The short answer is YES. Why are we confident that you will get a job? It's because, without exception, all of the people who took our Data Analyst career training to get better jobs or to grow in their current jobs have done so in very short order after graduating and often before graduating.

You need to keep in mind that well over 95% of job openings require prior experience so the question you need to ask any training organization is whether they provide you practical experience that training organizations normally don't provide.

We are all about providing you practical experience that you need to qualify for job openings. That makes us very different than other Data Analyst training programs that we know of.

Our hands-on training is only possible because each of our college-level courses has taken thousands of hours to create and because the training is presented through a powerful Artificial Intelligence-based platform rather than through more traditional lectures. Our proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based instruction platform delivers you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed.

You are also provided personal instructional support and coaching staff who:

  • Review your progress weekly;
  • Meet with you regularly to discuss your progress;
  • Are available to you, as needed, throughout your training;
  • Provide you a professional reference, upon graduation.

How much does the training cost?

If you look at the various Data Analyst career training programs that are available, you’ll find that there’s a wide range of pricing. There are even free Data Analyst training programs but the expression “you get what you pay for” definitely applies; if someone is offering their training for free, it’s likely to be exactly what you’ll get out of it.

After all, the reason that providers can offer online training for free is that they have invested very little in content creation (usually consisting of video lectures) and do not provide any instructional support or coaching of any kind. That is a guaranteed formula for failure and is the reason that less than 10% of online training programs ever get completed.

In our case, close to 100% of our enrollees complete our training and get great jobs. A significant number of our enrollees come to us after having gone the free training route and having realized that they like the career path that the training provides but that the training did not prepare them to get a job.

The list price of our training program is $5,600. It includes all training materials and personal instructional support and coaching throughout your training. It even includes our help in getting a great job when you graduate.

Who is the training targeted at?

You'll want to look closely at prerequisites when selecting a training program because many Data Analyst training programs are targeted at individuals with a strong math background, prior programming experience, and/or a certain level of formal education.

Our Data Analyst career training program is unique in the way its prerequisites are about ability to learn, motivation, and willingness to work hard, rather than on your prior knowledge. That is only possible because our training program incorporates foundational training for people who need or want it, at no additional cost.

If you’ve decided to become a Data Analyst, you’ve come to the right place because our training will provide you with the knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence that you need to get there.

How is the training done?

There is a huge difference in how Data Analyst career training is done and the results speak for themselves. While less than 10% of all enrollees in online training programs reach graduate, our Data Analyst career training has close to a 100% graduation rate.

While other career training programs use a combination of lectures and unguided work assignments, we use a proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based platform to deliver you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed. As a result, you spend 100% of your learning time actively working your way through interactive course materials.

Our learn-by-doing training is only possible because each of the courses has taken thousands of hours to build and because the courses are presented through a powerful Artificial Intelligence-based Learn-By-Doing platform. You are also provided personal coaching and instructional support throughout your training as an integral part of our training approach.

If you would like to see for yourself the effectiveness of our training approach when it replaced lectures and unguided work assignments in an advanced university linear algebra course, Click here and read the introduction of a published journal article. You’ll find that average grades went up over 20% and students loved it. If you'd like to see the comments that were made by the students who took the class, click here and scroll to the Student Comments section of the page.

Trainees love our hands-on training with instant assessment because it gives them both a feeling of accomplishment and the confidence needed to go out and apply their new knowledge.

Can I learn anywhere, anytime?

Is your schedule unpredictable and subject to unplanned changes? If so, you’ll want to look closely at how the training you will be taking is done because you could easily find yourself missing key learning sessions due to scheduling conflicts and other commitments. All of our training is self-paced so that you'll never miss a lesson because of other commitments. This is particularly attractive for people in the workforce who have to work around their employers’ and family commitments and responsibilities.

Is a bootcamp the right approach for me?

If you're in a position to spend full time getting career trained, a bootcamp could be the right approach for you as it gets you there in the shortest time possible.

Keep in mind that your pace of learning is individual but that bootcamps often don't take that into consideration. Rather, they are on a fixed schedule and, as a result, everyone is expected to go at the same pace.

That’s not the case with us because our training program is self-paced and that means that you set your pace and never get left behind.

We do an intake assessment before you start your training and we discuss your background and aspirations and learn about your work habits. From there, we set realistic expectations about the time you’ll be able to devote to your learning. Of course, you can change your pace at any time because you are always in control.

When you get done with your training, you are job-ready because you have gathered the knowledge, experience, competency, and confidence needed to be a Data Analyst, no matter what pace you chose to get the training done.

Will I be able to successfully complete the training?

This is a question that individuals who are interested in taking our career training program often ask us, given online training's poor track record. Interestingly, while less than 10% of all online classes go to completion, our completion rate is close to 100%. We believe that it is the manner in which online training is done that gives it a bad reputation. Trainees are typically fed information in the form of lectures and then left on their own to complete projects, without ready access to instructional assistance and that is a sure formula for failure.

We never leave alone to complete projects. Rather, our AI-based learning platform and instructional support and coaching are with you throughout your training. Our learning platform watches you doing exercises and guides and assists you in realtime, based on its observation of your progress. At your behest, it provides contextual help, hints, and templates. Your personally-assigned instructional support and coaching also oversee your progress and get involved when you need help. This makes us very different from other online training programs.

The bottom line is that you will successfully complete our training if you are committed and put in the required effort.

How long will my training take?

Data Analytics can’t be learned in a few weeks by passively watching video tutorials and then doing some exercises on your own. It is an advanced skill set which can only be mastered with a significant amount of closely supervised practice. NCLab’s proven training method is called Instructor-Assisted Learning By Doing. You learn actively from Day 1. After gaining confidence in one topic, you move to the next one. The progression has been improved and tuned for many years, and it is so smooth that you never get lost. And, you are never alone. Our highly responsive instructional support team composed of professional Data Analysts, college instructors, and former NCLab trainees stands by to promptly assist you with the coursework if needed.

Our Data Analyst career training program takes approximately 360 to 400 hands-on hours. You are assigned a coach who prepares a personalized roadmap and training timeline for you, and then works with you for the entire duration of the training. Because your training is self-paced and individualized to your schedule, you are able to build a consistent training routine with your coach that does not interfere with your work and family commitments.

What support will I get?

To get you to the point that you are job-ready, it's important that your training program be more than a series of lectures and independently-conducted work assignments, yet that is the way it's done by most online training programs and undoubtedly the major reason that less than 15% of the training programs are successfully completed.

Our proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based training platform delivers you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed.

Whenever you need assistance, you have access to an instructional support person who makes use of a very sophisticated learning management system to identify exactly where you are having difficulty and quickly gets you back on track.

You also have a personal coach who is with you every step of the way. That relationship begins with the development of your custom training plan that takes into consideration your family and work responsibilities and it continues with weekly coaching sessions, during which you and your coach review your progress, consider adjustments to your plan, and your coach incrementally makes you ready for job interviews and entering the workforce.

What credentials will I receive on completion of my training?

As part of our training program, we prepare you for Comptia's Data+ certification exam. Comptia is an industry-recognized credentialing organization.

Beyond preparation for Comptia's Data+ certification, we influence potential employers and placement agencies to get you a great Data Analyst job, using our in-depth knowledge of your qualifications and capabilities, upon the completion of your training.

In Summary

Your training is your path to a very bright future. We will stop short of nothing to make sure that we make that happen for you. We are committed to providing you with the necessary knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence that you need to get there.

What Our Trainees Say About Us

I love my new job!

“My boss encouraged me to take the training and now I’m really glad I did because I’m now doing data analytics work full time.” L.L.

I love going to work every day!

“Thank you for giving me the competency and confidence that I needed to get a dream job. With my limited formal education, I had serious doubts that I could master SQL and Python but learning by doing worked perfectly.” G.K.

Perfect teaching method

“As an adult with a busy schedule and the need to work around banking business hours etc.: this method of teaching is perfect for me and I would recommend it for basically anyone on any subject.” F. V.

Superb way to learn

“I really enjoyed the self-paced format of this training program. The material was presented clearly and concisely and allowed me to focus longer on concepts that were difficult, while glancing over concepts I was already familiar with.” A.C.

I really learned a lot

“I really learned a lot and have found a new passion towards data science and analytics I didn’t know I had.” M.N.

This is how I like to learn

“This is how I like to learn, at my own pace. I like the bite-sized tutorials and I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I complete the exercises that follow them.” M.J.

Totally worth it

“I just completed 3 courses: SQL Fundamentals, Advanced SQL, and Predictive Data Analytics with Python within the estimated hours that they had advised. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it!” Q.B

Great training!

“I watched videos, read short tutorials, viewed examples, ran demo programs, and then performed exercises that demonstrated my comprehension of the subject matter.” S.L.

The training is really great!

“Not easy but really informative. Practical experience was what I wanted and I feel that I got it.” F. Z.

The program is great

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

Compliments to the NCLab team

“Please extend my compliments to the NCLab team if you can, and keep advocating for this type of learning, if at the very least as an option for people like me who learn well this way.” F. A.

You do a great job explaining the concepts

“So far I’m enjoying the course. You do a great job explaining the concepts and the logic behind each step (the explanation for the difference between WHERE and HAVING comes to mind)!” R. C.

I’m really enjoying this class

“The emphasis on working at your own pace removes the stress of a normal class, and I can work around my other classes. NCLab is much better than similar programs, such as DataCamp. Not only do I learn the material, I retain it. Each lesson uses all or most of the previous concepts, which provides additional practice and ensures that you don’t forget the previous material. This is one of the most enjoyable and informative programs I’ve taken.” N. L.

I am thoroughly enjoying the training

“I feel like I am learning a skill, much more than I felt in other courses. The use of repetition, doing programming in pieces, and the entire way the platform is laid out are far superior to how my university teaches their main, introductory, programming courses. It is too bad that the philosophy of academia is standing in its own way.” K.L.

Accelerate your career and create a better life ahead.

 

You’ll never find a better time to get start your training.
