The basics of working with data
In an increasingly digital world, an understanding of data is becoming more and more essential. StackFuel’s online part-time Data Awareness course provides you all the basics you need when it comes to topics such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT). Here you will get to know the latest data technologies, practice professional communication with data experts and, after once you have completed the course you will be able to independently evaluate data analyses and assess data visualizations. We use real business scenarios to provide you with practical and effective training so that you can put the knowledge you have gained to use right from the start.
The Data Awareness course is particularly suited to professionals who understand the value of data in work processes and who want to collect and process data to optimize their own way of working and increase profits for their company. The Data Awareness course therefore lays the foundation for working with data as well as modern data technologies. No previous knowledge is required for the Data Awareness course.
The goal of the Data Awareness course is a thorough overview of current data technologies. We provide a basic understanding of the entire data analysis process and complex data models, enabling participants to communicate professionally with data experts. You will also learn how to evaluate data analyses and projects in their own subject domain as well as how to evaluate data visualizations.

Flexible course formats
Our standard part-time courses are designed specially for company employees, as they combine professional development and in-depth skills development with everyday work. With our new FastTrack trainings, we are addressing the needs of our participants and customers who would like to take part in our courses on a part-time or full-time basis in particular. The time spent on our courses each week as par of our FastTrack formats is therefore more concentrated and you will develop more quickly into the job role of Data Analyst or Data Scientist.
StackFuel's specialist courses follow a practical approach that helps employees get into the job roles of the future and gives them the necessary skills to create real added value from data. This is also reflected in the final project that the participants carry out and which our mentoring team, made up of educational data scientists, analyzes and evaluates. Participants receive a certificate based on this at the end of the course, which they can use in various social networks as well as privately, as proof of their newly acquired knowledge and skills.
