    The Forecasting and Predictive Analytics Certificate (15.0 CPE Credits) will teach you fundamental techniques used for predictive analytics: regression, classification, clustering, optimization, and simulation. Beginning with basic models for revealing and establishing relationships, you will learn to apply increasingly sophisticated modeling techniques for practical data analysis, as well as commonly encountered problems so you can determine the fit and usefulness for prediction of your models, and apply them to typical business problems.

    This certificate is Part 4 of the Data Analyst Certificates Bundle – a comprehensive five-part program that provides training and practical guidance on the topic of data analytics.

    As you develop your understanding of applied predictive analytics, you'll learn how to perform basic forecasting using time-based data to predict future values from a model. You will also learn how to model and calculate scenarios based on distance and space. You will get practice with classification, including naive Bayesian classification; create basic decision trees; and use various techniques for clustering and linear optimization to solve common business problems; as well as learn techniques for assessing the effectiveness of your solutions.

    Note: It is recommended that you complete the Data Analytics Modeling Certificate, or ensure you have equivalent knowledge and skills, before starting this certificate course.

    Learning Labs*

    This is an interactive learning program that includes bonus hands-on learning labs that will expose you to the tools needed to implement an analytics practice in a practical way and equip you to deploy those tools as needed within your organization. You will practice using various technologies for preparing, analyzing and managing datasets in the real world.

    *Time spent on learning labs does not award CPE and completing learning labs is not a requirement for earning the certificate.
