This certification is based on the Data Science with Python Foundation course first developed by GoDataDriven. The course provides guidance on the principles and practice of loading, analyzing, visualizing data with libraries such as pandas. It also teaches you how predictive models work and how to use Scikit-learn to train and fit models. The course is divided into four knowledge areas:

  1. Python and Jupyter basics
  2. Data Analysis with Pandas and Matplotlib
  3. Fundamentals of Machine Learning
  4. Practical Machine Learning with Scikit-learn

This certification is perfect for you if

You are a data scientist who want to get a grip on the most popular and essential data science tools. You require a working knowledge of the key principles of data science and are able to apply that on disparate data sets and business challenges.
