Intermediate Statistics Course

Intermediate Statistics Course (3 Days)

This course is designed to give a robust understanding of Intermediate Statistical Concepts and Methodology as they relate to Project/Study Preparation, Data Collection, Statistical Data Analysis, Statistical Problem Solving Techniques and Data Presentation/Reporting in the Workplace. Minitab Statistical Software will be used in each course as the basic statistical software package.

The Three Day Session is for those students that either have recently attended a Probability and Statistics class for Engineers or Scientists and/or are currently designing Statistical Studies and/or applying Statistical Methods in the work place and need only a review of the Statistical Concepts that will be covered in this course and developed into practical statistical tools and methodology that will be applied in the work place.

Our 2 Day Basic Probability and Statistics course can be combined with this 3 Day Intermediate Statistics course as a great review class for the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer Exam.

A Five Day Session also exists for those students that either have attended a Probability and Statistics class in the past and have not used statistical methods in their workplace recently and need an in depth review and learning experience relative to intermediate statistical methodology.
