Jigsaw Academy, a premier online analytics training institute, is a major player in the worldwide analytics and big data training arena. With the analytics industry worldwide poised for explosive growth, an increasing number of students and professionals are eager to gain the necessary skills they need to succeed in the analytics field.
Thanks to today’s hi tech digital infrastructure available, Jigsaw Academy is able to deliver state of the art virtual training via portable classrooms and video based learning. “The flexibility and cost advantages of this type of learning bring in students from all across the world. Since the company was founded in 2011, we have trained thousands of students in the latest tools and techniques in the field of analytics. And this week we celebrate a milestone, our 200th International student,” says Gaurav Vohra, CEO and co founder of Jigsaw Academy.
“Our Foundation analytics course seems to be the most popular with both Indian as well as International students,” says Sarita Digumarti, trainer and co founder of Jigsaw. “It’s particularly heartening to see the encouraging rise in numbers of our international students. We have students from US, Australia, Singapore, Israel, South Africa, Peru, Brazil, Japan, UK and several other European countries,” continues Sarita.
The video courses are popular with international students in different time-zones as it allows them to learn at their convenience. However they are also increasingly willing to overcome the challenges of time zones and are also registering for the instructor based classes. Emile Van Der Heyde, from Cape Town, South Africa joined Jigsaw’s Foundation course with SAS mainly because of the learning flexibility the course offered. “I chose Jigsaw Academy’s course because it offered a specific and practical program with SAS programming skills at a relatively low cost. This was ideal. Jigsaw’s course structure allowed for part time study and classes over weekends. And ultimately the SAS skills I gained allowed me to get a much better job.” says Emile.
Currently, Jigsaw Academy offers five courses. Their Foundation certification course in SAS has been designed by industry experts who have applied analytics to solve business problems in a variety of fields like retail, FMCG, financial services, telecom and health care.
Their Data Scientist Certification with R and Hadoop teach predictive modelling techniques like regression and cluster analysis and are covered through case studies on real business data.
Jigsaw Academy’s advanced courses in Retail, Finance and Analytics with R are all designed and delivered by industry experts who use case studies on real business data to give students a truly practical learning experience.
Jigsaw Academy has plans to launch several new specialized courses in the months ahead to meet the demand for data analysts skilled at SAS and other analytics tools.
Jigsaw has also begun to collaborate with premier business schools across India to design, and deliver business analyst courses as part of their regular curriculum.
