How long does it take to complete the Professional Certificate?
The certificate requires completion of 9 courses. Each course typically contains 3-6 modules with an average effort of 2 to 4 hours per module. If learning part-time (e.g. 1 module per week), it would take 6 to 12 months to complete the entire certificate. If learning full-time (e.g. 1 module per day) the certificate can be completed in 2 to 3 months.
What background knowledge is necessary?
This certificate is open for anyone with any job and academic background. No prior computer programming experience is necessary, but is an asset. Familiarity working with computers, high school math, communication and presentation skills. For the last few courses knowledge of Calculus and Linear Algebra is an asset but not an absolute requirement.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
Yes, it is highly recommended to take the courses in the order they are listed, as they progressively build on concepts taught in previous courses. For example the Data Visualization, Python and Machine Learning courses require knowledge of Python.
Will I earn university credit for completing the Professional Certificate?
No, there is no University credits involved with taking these courses.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Professional Certificate?
Become job ready for a career in Data Science. Develop practical skills using hands-on labs in Cloud environments, projects and captsones.
I already completed some of the other courses in this Professional Certificate. Will I get "credit" for them?
If you have already completed some of the courses in this Professional Certificate, either individually or as part of another specialization, they will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish the Professional Certificate faster. You will only need to complete the courses that you have not yet completed.
I have already completed the "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization. Can I still enrol for this Professional Certificate?
Yes, absolutely. Any courses that you have already completed as part of that Specialization will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish the Professional Certificate faster.
Which should I enroll for - "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization, or this "Data Science Professional Certificate"?
This Professional Certificate consists of 9 courses. The "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization has 4 courses, all of which are also included in this Professional Certificate.
If you are unsure about your ability to commit to the level of effort and time required to complete this Professional Certificate, we recommend starting with the Introduction to Data Science Specialization, which has fewer courses. And if after earning the specialization certificate you are still determined to continue building your Data Science skills, you can then enroll for this Professional Certificate and then just complete the courses that are not in the specialization.
I have already completed the "Applied Data Science" Specialization. Can I still enroll for this Professional Certificate?
Yes, absolutely. Any courses that you have already completed as part of that Specialization will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish this Professional Certificate faster.
