Booz Allen Hamilton launches online data-science program
McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton is starting a data-science training program.
The program offers 40 hours of content, teaching common data-science principles while guiding students through advanced, scenario-based challenges.
The program offers 32 “missions” that allow users with basic programming proficiency to transform raw data into business-critical insights. Participants ear points, awards and badges when they complete a level that they can share on social media.
“We’re…seeing a clear demand — across all industries — for data science expertise, but it far exceeds the available supply of trained professionals,” Booz Allen Hamilton’s Peter Guerra said in a statement. “By introducing training like Explore Data Science, we’re providing companies and interested individuals with an invaluable resource while empowering an increasingly data-drive workforce.”
The program for an individual is a one-time fee of $1,250.
