Boost your career by starting a job in Data Science!

Do you want to learn how to successfully apply Python? THE programming language for Data & AI!

This 12 week data science Bootcamp will guide you through all the ins and outs of becoming truly “Data Driven”.

Do you find it hard to learn from scratch or without guidance? Our experienced trainers will lead you along this journey, taking you from scratch to a professional level.

After finishing this program, you’ll leave as a certified Data Scientist and feel empowered to start boosting your career by applying these new skills!

This data science bootcamp course is perfect if you want to:

  • Reskill: you want a career within the field Data Science but don’t have the experience or education (yet!)
  • Become Data Driven: you know the impact that data can make in your field (marketing, finance, supply chain, retail, etc.) and as a Subject Matter Expert or Manager, you would like to embed Data Science within your work.
  • Upskill: you already know Excel or SQL, but want to take your analytical skills to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need any experience with Data Science before starting?

    No, this bootcamp is designed that you can start from scratch. In twelve weeks you’ll have a very steep learning curve towards the principles and best practices within Data Science.

  2. How much time do I need to invest in the program?

    The Data Science bootcamp is twelve weeks long. Every week you have a 4 hour module from 9:00 am till 12:30 pm. No homework, but you can of course invest extra time beyond the modules if you feel like it!

  3. When will the classes take place?

    All our instructor-led modules are from 9:00 am till 12:30 pm, the other on-demand modules you can do whenever you want that week!

    Training days with startdate September 2021: September 23, 30, October 7, 14, 21, 28, November 4, 11, 18, 25 and December 2. The Data Science bootcamp is with instructor-led and on-demand modules, and from 9:00 am till 12:30 pm.

  4. Will I receive a diploma or certificate after finishing the data science bootcamp?

    We have worked together with APMG International to offer you an internationally recognized certification in Data Science.

    The exam and Data Science with Python Foundation certificate are included in the course. The exam can be taken directly after the bootcamp. After passing the exam you receive your certificate. More information about the exam can be found here.

  5. What kind of background do I need to join?

    No need for specific diplomas or experience. Having worked with data and understanding the basics of statistics is a perk. 75% of our trainees have a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
