Statistical system R ia a powerful and free tool. It is applied virtually in all fields of business and science. If you haven’t heard about R then learn why it is profitably to know R.

R is very often used in banks and other institutions to build predictive models, analyse data, test statistical hypotheses or automate data analysis workflows. Even is R is not the main tool in an institution then it is an excellent complement of it.

The attendants get practical skills. After the training they can analyse single-handedly their own data using R scripts got during the training.

What will you learn?

  • Learn basics of R and of powerful and free statistical system R.
  • How to read and write data in many formats.
  • How to programm in R language.
  • Basics of data analysis and attractive visual presentation of data.
  • You will work on these topics hands-on with a computer. It will take a half of the training.
  • You will get comprehensive materials and R scripts allowing you working single-handedly on your data.

For whom is this training?

Employees of departments working on data analysis and modelling (e.g. CRM, credit risk), controlling, audit, marketing, IT, and other departments who:

  • need to analyze data,
  • want to facilitate and automatize data analysis processes,
  • need to visualize data,
  • would benefit from using a flexible and powerful tool for any application of data analysis.
