Testimonial

  • sagar-a
    Poorti Mehta

    Imarticus Learning offers a comprehensive course in Business Analytics.

    To give an edge to my profile and to make a transition, I had enrolled myself in the SAS training. The training was for about 3 months. Not only did the training provide us with excellent hands on, it also gave us an exposure to the analytics industry. From mock interview sessions, technical training and resume building session, the SAS course was a complete package. Even today the faculty at Imarticus is just a call away when we need guidance. For those trying to move into analytics or planning to learn more, Imarticus Learning would be a good choice. And if you can’t make up your mind, then the institute is always open to counsel you; that’s what I did when I was zeroing down on options.”

    I heard about this course in SAS which was offered by Imarticus.

    Our instructor made it feel so simple that I completely forgot that I was from a non-IT background. I didn’t miss any of his lectures and it helped me clear my Base SAS and Advance SAS certification in the first attempt with good marks. The non-teaching staff at Imarticus is also very helpful and the Institution provides a good environment for learning.”
