Attended too many webinars, talks, (Clubhouse sessions anyone?) and Youtube videos – that now you’re totally confused as to what data science really is?
We feel you.
That’s why in this article I’m going to help you break down (and hopefully) guide you towards effective learning.
We have broken down our top two data science learning options into easy to understand and comparable sets of information to help you decide which one is the right fit for you!
Here is a brief comparison of Data Science Bootcamp vs Data Science 360 (DS360):
|Data Science Bootcamp||Data Science 360 Professional Certification|
|Build your data science portfolio & complete 4 real-life projects (Instructor-guided, self-pace & online live training)||Complete professional certification – learn the practical A-Z application of data science (AI, machine learning, big data analytics, and much more)|
|Lifetime support – instant chat anytime||Lifetime support – instant chat anytime|
|Fully Online – 1 hour/day commitment for 30 days.||In-person 4-full days + Online training modules.|
|Daily lessons and daily tasks||48+ hours (online & physical training)|
|Welcome to re-join next cohort online live training||Unlimited refreshers to physical class (Re-attend at no cost, for any intakes)|
|All future boot camp material updates||All future course updates included|
|Certificate of completion||Certificate of completion|
What does this mean?
We see the boot-camp as a 30-day guided challenge, where participants learn by working & completing real-world projects.
DS360 on the other hand follows a more lesson-based structure with the goal of preparing students to be data scientists.
Within DS360 you’ll learn data storytelling and presentation in person – which the boot-camp couldn’t offer.
However, we in fact encourage DS360 students to enrol in the Bootcamp as well – to keep themselves accountable and the experience of completing 4 data projects.
Data Science Bootcamp
The data science boot-camp is for you if you are looking to learn how to manage data science projects proficiently.
You don’t need to have a certain skill set or education in order to succeed in the course.
You can do this course online, at home, in bed, wherever.
We offer lifetime support for anything you may need assistance with.
Within the 30 days, spare an hour every day and learn skills you didn’t think you would be capable of learning. Receive bite-sized video tutorials every day, complete the tasks and receive feedback from your instructor and peers too!
It’s a month-long course filled to the brim with hands-on learning; this translates to around 60+ hours of learning and work.
This Bootcamp expands your boundaries and employability when you pick up 21st-century skill-sets used by actual data professionals at work.
Come up with 4 data science projects and level up with essential data science skills.
Because you’ll be working with real data problems, the projects you complete can be easily turned into a portfolio for a data science interview.
Here’s a breakdown of the bootcamp:
Days 1 – 6: Data Science Fundamentals
Days 7 – 12: Predict customer churn using decision tree
Days 13 – 18: Forecasting using Regression analysis
Days 19 – 24: Social media and text analysis
Days 25 – 30: Dashboard and portfolio
Day 31: Fully equipped to handle data science projects confidently as a data professional.
This bootcamp is self-paced alongside 4 online live pieces of training which will be held on each Saturday within 30 days.
You will learn how to effectively practice real-world problems and solve them.
Whether you work in finance, e-commerce, accounting, banking, HR, engineering, manufacturing, operations, or retail – you’ll know exactly how to apply data analytics and predictive analytics.
Data Science 360
The Data Science 360 certification is designed to progress your career especially if you are a data analyst, engineer, marketer, or finance professional.
In this course, you will learn data science, big data analytics, machine learning, and become a job-ready data scientist – in 6 weeks.
You will receive up to 8+ hours of training and video tutorials alongside 4 full-day physical classes at Svofo, Petaling Jaya.
Meet the instructors in person and bring your data science problems during the physical class.
The physical class is limited to only 25 participants to ensure optimum learning.
Did I mention free course updates (with industry changes), support, and networking with alumni for life?
This is a lifetime promise to you, with a one-time-only investment.
Also, we do have chats and groups via Slack and Facebook!
It’s a gift that keeps giving.
Build a network of like-minded people at your convenience.
When it comes to your certification, remember that Data Science 360 and Data Science Boot-camp are the only data science programmes in Malaysia, with online and offline training, where you will receive a professional certificate upon completion, following an examination.
Here’s a breakdown of the course:
- Programming for data science
Learn programming skills that the job market demands.
- Data Mining & Cleaning
How to collect, extract, query, clean, and aggregate data for analysis.
- Exploratory Data Analysis
How to explore datasets using visual analytics and statistical analysis.
- Machine Learning
How to build machine learning models and implement algorithms, artificial intelligence.
- Modelling, Validation, and Problem Solving
Apply question, modelling, and validation problem-solving processes to datasets from various industries in order to provide insight into real-world problems and solutions.
- Data Visualization and Story Telling
Create eye-catching visualization that helps to tell a story that communicates your findings.
- Analysis to Presentation
Communicate findings, results, and creating an effective presentation, even a non-tech layman understands. Then frame business questions from data science.
- Big Data Analysis
Identify big data opportunities and articulate how cloud computing technologies are solving these challenges.
So, which course is for me?
Well if you’re looking for an all-inclusive, make you a data scientist, ready for employment, I would recommend Data Science 360.
It is a complete course with an all-encompassing professional programme.
In this course, you will get an extensive hands-on experience dealing with data projects that prepares you before you know it.
You’ll be equipped to manage important data science roles and take charge of data science projects with confidence.
If you are interested in Data Science and want to see what it would be like to be able to effectively and efficiently manage data science projects without too much of an investment, I would recommend Data Science Boot-camp.
In this course, you will learn the skills and tools you need to be an adept data scientist.
It is exhaustive enough to make you feel empowered but short enough for you not to feel lost in a sea of information.
It concentrates on challenging yourself in an instructor-guided environment.
We have a unique application programme for our courses which allows us to assess how ready you are to effectively use our course and apply it.
To ensure your success in these courses we recommend that when a student joins they are ready – financially, mentally, and physically.
It’s better when you focus on one course/bootcamp at a time.
Focus is key
