2021 Data Analytics Credential Participant

"The format worked well for someone like me who came to learn a specific skill (R programming) while balancing full-time work and family obligations. I really valued that the homework covered the previous week as well as the current week's material, acting as a review and a study guide for the new material."

"The chance to learn R programming enabled me to explore potential opportunities for coding in my future, such as in the MPP degree. The DAC content helped me tremendously during Math and Coding camp. Without a doubt, this solid foundation DAC has built up for me would be a significant kick-start for any MPP applicants like me!"

"The program is very hands-on—it mimics what a lot of people are doing in more policy-related roles. I can certainly see myself using the skills I’ve learned later on in the public sector."
