This training will take you through the basics of this powerful language R. From the ground up, you will learn how to develop data for analysis and apply statistical measures to create data visualisations. By exploring the characteristics of data sets, you can analyse and achieve optimum results based on past data.



At the end of Machine Learning with R training course, participants will

  • Learn to explore and visualize data and polish your skills in techniques such as Predictive Analytics, Association Rule Mining and much more
  • Derive meaning from custom created charts that are used to represent complex data, manipulate this data and create statistical models for predictive analysis
  • Learn to use R, not just as a statistical tool but to create your own functions, objects and packages


  • Basic knowledge of a programming language such as Python or Java
  • A background in Mathematics will be beneficial
