Announcing Solution-Focused Certificate Training
in Predictive Modeling and Data Analytics

The Modeling Agency provides practitioners and managers with a vendor-neutral data analytics and predictive modeling course series to aggressively advance their organizations’ analytic maturity.

May X, 2014 – Pittsburgh, PA – The Modeling Agency, LLC, the most respected data analytics consultancy that provides training, mentorship and solutions to organizations that are data-rich, yet information-poor, announced a new schedule of enhanced courses for 2014 in Washington, D.C. and Denver, Colorado. The courses, which can be taken independently or in a progressive series, cover a range of predictive analytics and data mining topics that are designed to prepare practitioners and leadership to efficiently build lasting skills and capabilities in data analytics and predictive modeling, and to advance their organization’s analytic maturity.

These courses accommodate all skill levels and analytic team roles in order to establish a common, purposeful platform and methodical approach to actionable and measurable analytics. Each course encapsulates current practice experience from a highly seasoned faculty of senior consultants – many of whom have worked together in this field for more than two decades.

“The Modeling Agency's new series of courses provides practitioners with vendor-neutral and non-promotional orientations to predictive modeling methodology, and a structured approach to data mining which is critical to modeling success,” explained Eric King, president of The Modeling Agency. “These professionals appreciate that a strategic focus is required to properly apply modeling tactics and truly succeed at the project level.

Beyond a dense set of course notes, attendees will leave with a content-rich Excel workbook that serves as a project planning template, data transformation roadmap, results visualization display, metrics performance dashboard and instructor’s project key.  After the event, the workbook serves as a session template to develop further after the event and reference as an analytic project planning framework back at the office.”
