Occupational Certificate: Data Science Practitioner



The purpose of this qualification is to prepare a learner to operate as a Data Science Practitioner. Data Science Practitioners take custody of data and make the data available in a structured form for the Data Scientist to use. They support the data life cycle by collecting, transforming, and analyzing data and communicating results to solve elementary business problems. They transform data into robust, comprehensive data sets, aligned with the problem identified in the statement of work and ready for storage.

A qualified learner will be able to:

  • Collect large amounts of structured and unstructured data from primary and secondary sources and extract and transform them into a usable format.
  • Apply data analysis techniques to uncover patterns and trends in datasets (resultant sets of data that can be viewed as tables or as a "spreadsheet of data") to solve business-related problems.
  • Prepare and present descriptive analytic reports on patterns and trends using computer programming languages and explain those patterns and trends through e.g., visualization, storytelling, etc., using data visualization tools.
