I got a very Descriptive picture of Data science from this Course. All the topics were very well explained in this Course.

Handson was recommended by one of my friend. Every topic was taught in a very detailed manner. Highly Recommendable.

The course content is too good. I have completed SAS and R and pursuing Python at present. The instructor is very good and taught very interestingly. The course turned out to be very useful for me.

I am a beginner in Data Science, with no technical knowledge. The instructor in this course have simplified the contents so well that made me understand very easily. Every topic was taught in a very systematic manner with practical examples.

As a non-technical professional it was a great experience learning from the basics and to the end. I learnt from hands-on sessions and they are very friendly. I am very happy to attend this program offered by Handson.

Thanks a lot to my faculty, he guided me throughout the project work. Handson organizes training programs to avail students of professional learning in the field of analytics and data science.

I have completed R. Now I am doing my project work. Really a good experience.

One of my friends recommended me for Handson. It was a great learning experience with Handson, I enrolled in the Certificate in Data Science course. Three programming languages SAS, R, and Python was taught from the beginner's level to advanced level. Faculty has good knowledge and was very supportive.
