Emory Analytics Training Program

The Emory Analytics Training: Developer Course is a rigorous 12-week training program that enables users to develop localized reporting for their department or business unit. Participants will be trained in data governance, the report development process, analytic tools, and best practices. By the end of the program, participants will have completed a capstone project that meets a reporting need in their area and will have the skills to develop analytic reports for future needs.

Graduates of the program become Certified Analytic Report Developers (CARDs) and join the Emory Analytics Network, a community in practice for staff engaged in analytics from across campus.

This program is offered periodically throughout the year.  Please check back for future program dates.
