Absolutely worth it The Data Science curriculum was very challenging and rigorous, but the trainer hand-held us through the whole learning journey, answered all our doubts and gave us illustrations from his own industry experience. One of the best investments I have ever made.

Everything was well organized. I would definitely refer their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.
