Data cleaning is not for the faint at heart. It’s a serious business, because if you can’t get every data point perfectly clean you’re likely to run into big problems when you try to analyse your dataset. In this course you’ll learn how to clean your data and get it analysis-ready in a fraction of the time. I’ll introduce you to a method that took me several years to perfect, but if you follow these steps you’ll become much more productive, get your results faster and make your boss happy in the process. The steps you’ll learn in this course are very simple to follow, but are extremely effective, so you’ll know that you’re getting the best start possible, saving you weeks of misery!
At the end of this course you will receive a certificate of completion. Post it to Facebook, your LinkedIn page or print it out and stick it on your wall. Just don’t throw darts at it, ok…
