This 2-day data science focused training course explores regression and time-series analysis. At the conclusion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- Build single and multivariate regression models
- Assess statistical significance and validate models for explanatory power and bias
- Use time-series models to identify seasonality patterns and create forecasts for cyclical data
Currently, there are no public classes scheduled. Please contact a Phoenix TS Training Consultant to discuss hosting a private class at 240-667-7757.

Regression and Time-Series Analysis Training FAQs
This course is intended for professionals who have a good working knowledge of R, work with time-series data and want to create forecasts for future trends, need to model cyclical or seasonal data such as sales, customer volumes, web traffic, employee behaviors, etc.;
need a good background in basic statistics and statistical modeling
or want to stand out as data scientists with advanced predictive modeling and time-series analysis skills .
Students should have taken the Introduction to Data Science, R, and Visualization course or should have the equivalent knowledge of data manipulation, cleaning and visualization.
