I wanted to develop R skills to allow me to “future proof” my career. I’ve learnt a lot in a structured environment.

This course is aimed at beginners and requires no previous experience of R. Some basic familiarity with a spreadsheet is required, such as being able to identify rows, columns and heading names. If you have some experience with base R, this course will introduce you to the benefits of using the Tidyverse packages.

The amount that you get out of a hands on course with support compared to video courses is amazing. A great starter course for R to demystify it and get you going – it breaks it down and gives the confidence to go and find out if you later get stuck.
