What if I miss a class?

Don’t worry. You will always get a recording for the class in your inbox. Have a look at that and reach out to the faculty in case of doubts. All our live classes are recorded for self-study purpose and future reference, and these can also be accessed through our Learning Management System. Hence, in case you miss a class, you can refer to the video recording and then reach out to the faculty during their doubts clearing time or ask your question in the beginning of the subsequent class.

You can also repeat any class you want in the next one year after your course completion.

For how long are the recordings available to me?

1 year post your course commencement. If needed, you can also repeat any number of classes you want in the next one year after course completion. Batch change policies will however, apply in this case.

In case required because any genuine reasons, the recordings access can be extended further for upto 1 year post the completion of one year validity. Please note that given the constant changes in the Analytics industry, our courses continue to be upgraded and hence old courses might no longer hold relevance. Hence, we do not promise lifetime access just for marketing purposes. 

Can I download the recordings?

No. Our recordings can be accessed through your account on LMS or stream them live online at any point of time though.

Recordings are integral part of AnalytixLabs intellectual property by Suo Jure. The downloading/distribution of these recordings in anyway is strictly prohibited and illegal as they are protected under copyright act. Incase a student is found doing the same, it will lead to an immediate and permanent suspension in the services, access to all the learning resources will be blocked, course fee will be forfeited and the institute will have all the rights to take strict legal action against the individual.

What if I share my LMS login details with a friend?

The sharing of LMS login credentials is unauthorized, and as a security measure, if the LMS is accessed by multiple places, it will flag in the system and your access to LMS can be terminated.

Will I get a certificate in the end?

Yes. All our course are certified. As part of the course, students get weekly assignments and module-wise case studies. Once all your submissions are received and evaluated, the certificate shall be awarded.

Do you help in placements?

We follow a comprehensive and a self-sustaining system to help our students with placements. This is a win-win situation for our candidates and corporate clients. As a pre-requisite for learning validation, candidates are required to submit the case studies and project work provided as a part of the course (flexible deadline).

For this course, limited placement guidance will be available post your course completion. We will provide guidance to you in terms of what are the right profiles for you based on your education and experience, interview preparation and conducting mock interviews, if required.

Do you guarantee placements?

No institute can guarantee placements, unless they are doing so as a marketing gimmick! It is on a best effort basis.

In professional environment, it is not feasible for any institute to do so, except for a marketing gimmick. For us, it is on a best effort basis but not time – bound – in some cases students reach out to us even after 3 years for career support.

Do you have a classroom option?

Data Visualization and Analytics course is available only through a fully interactive live online and instructor-led mode. This is fully interactive and instructor-led. Hence, you will be able to hear the trainer, see what he does on his screen and can also talk to the trainer and ask questions in real time.

How do I attend the online classes? Are they interactive or self-paced?

We provide both the options and for instructor led live online classes we use the gold standard platform used by the top universities across the globe. These video sessions are fully interactive and students can chat or even ask their questions verbally over the VoIP in real time to get their doubts cleared.

What do I need to attend the online classes?

To attend the online classes, all you need is a laptop/PC with a basic internet connection. Students have often shared good feedback of attending these live classes through their data card or even their mobile 3G connection, though we recommend a basic broadband connection.

For best user experience, a mic-headphone is recommended to enhance the voice quality, though the laptop’s in-built mic works fine and you can ask your question over the chat as well.

How can I reach out to someone if I have doubts post class?

Through the LMS, students can always connect with the trainer or even schedule one-to-one time over the phone or online. During the course we also schedule periodic doubts-clearing classes though students can also ask doubts of a class in the subsequent class.

LMS also has a discussion forum where a lot of your doubts might get easily answered.

Incase you are having a problem still, repeat the class and schedule one-to-one time with the trainer.

What is your refund policy?

  • Instructor Led Live online or Classroom - Within 7 days of registartion date and latest 3 days before batch start
  • Video-based - 2 days

Can I pay in installments?

No. There is no option of paying in installments for short courses like this one.

I am having difficulty coping up with my classes. What can I do?

For all the courses, we also provide the recordings of each class for their self-reference as well as revision in case you miss any concept in the class. In case you still have doubts after revising through the recordings, you can also take one-to-one time with the faculty outside classes during. Furthermore, if students want to break their courses in different modules, they get one year time to repeat any of the classes with other batches.

What are the system requirements for the software?

There is no particular system requirement for this course since the tools required for this course (Excel, Access and Tableau) can easily be installed on almost every laptop with basic configuration available these days.

For Tableau, please note that Tableau doesn't have a learning version. Hence, you can choose among the following versions to install:

  • Tableau Public - Free though it has constraints like not being able to connect to SQL servers etc Hence, it is useful, free and doesn't constraint your learning at all
  • Tableau Desktop - Only a 14 day trial version is available from Tableau's website. If you have a valid student id (graduate/postgraduated). then you can get a free key which is valid for one year

I did my DSSR course at AnalytixLabs and I can confidently say that i made the right choice, I was not from Analytics background and was looking for a job in Data Science domain, after a lot of research online i decided to study here, the course is very well complemented by lots of assignments and case studies which ensure that we get practical experience rather than just theoretical knowledge. I am eternally grateful to Sumeet Sir and Ankita Mam, I am strong in SAS and cleared the SAS certification easily because of the strong foundation given by Ankita Mam, and special thanks to Sumeet Sir who not only taught exceptionally well but also played a great role in guiding me in the right direction, when i came to him , i did not have a job, i was totally hopeless, but he was always supportive and more than me he was confident in my competency that i will get a job eventually. I finally got a job and i can't thank both of you enough for all the guidance,help and support.
