Frequently Asked Questions
What is Data Coach?
Data Coach is a cross-technology training platform that connects learners with content, video, live coaching support, and their analytics community to ultimately become self-sufficient in their data environment.
How does Data Coach work?
Think of Data Coach as a peer development platform where you connect with coaches or experts that can help you build your first analytics project and get certified in top industry tools and concepts. Your coach will help you select a project and you will complete modular content and development tasks on your own time. When you need help or want to submit for feedback, the coaches are there to help.
How much of my time will I need to invest in Data Coach?
The Data Coach Program, which includes self-service course materials and a capstone project, typically takes 10-13 weeks to complete. This is because we only ask for 3-4 hours per week of your time to participate. This style of learning improves comprehension and ensures adequate time to apply your learning to your capstone.
What are the outcomes as a business leader implementing Data Coach?
Team & Culture
Speed to insight and a “work smart” culture
A more data literate team
Skill level-setting/balancing amongst the team members
Each Learner delivers a capstone project as part of the program, so you get N dashboards x number of learners.
Cost savings through the reduction of dependency on analytics contractors.
Ability to utilize your company's “big data sets” with modern tools that can handle volume.
Automation and Time Savings
Staff can remove repetitive, manual data manipulation tasks so they can focus on bigger ideas and advanced analytics

How are the courses and learning paths structured?
Our User Essentials courses cover basic data literacy, using the web-based analytics product interface, and how to answer your own ad-hoc questions of data as a consumer.
Our Core courses are all about enabling the desktop developer. These courses are capstone project-driven and require both e-Learning content completion and application of the concepts in the tool in a real-world business case.
Our Specialist courses target advanced analysts and are a continuation of our Core series. These courses are shorter, micro certifications going deep on non-core tool concepts to keep your skills sharp and achieve depth in areas that are relevant for you.
