Training Track

Associate Enterprise Data Analyst (AEDA)

Descriptive Statistics is one of the modules under our Associate Enterprise Data Analyst (AEDA) programme. AEDA is a 15- day training program that provides analysts with the tools required for efficient Data Analysis.

Details of Subject

Day 1
  1. Exploratory Data Analysis –  Participants will learn the statistical concepts they need to explore, understand, summarize and visualize data. Students will be able to use information derived from quantifying and visualizing distributions and relationships in data to generate business insights. They will be able to understand and analyze business objects and their impacts on business key performance indicators (KPIs).
Day 2
  1. Statistical Distributions –  Participants will learn about various statistical distributions and their differences. Students will be able to use statistical distributions to compare data variables and make predictions in business use cases where distribution parameters are known. Statistical distributions help business analysts to understand and estimate business objects.
  2. Sampling –  Participants will learn how to select representative samples from a population as well as methods to design sampling methods to generate reliable statistical estimates. Students will learn how to generate reliable datasets from business objects to be used for further analysis in business.

Before that, she received her MSc. In Mathematics in 2001 from Sharif University of Technology. Her Masters thesis was on defining sets in combinatorial structures and their applications in cryptography. After graduation, Laleh was a Mathematics instructor, researcher, and research mentor at Isfahan Mathematics House. She specializes in Mathematical Modelling, Statistical Analysis, Machine Learning, and programming languages, such as Python and R.

CADS Certification

EDP CADS Certified Descriptive Statistics

Descriptive Statistics takes data in samples and evaluates data-driven decisions. This certification shows mastery of sampling, distributions, relational variables, and various graphical representations. Do keep in mind that the test is in R code. If you work from clear data-driven insights instead of assumptions, get certified.
