Frequently Asked Questions
Our Python courses were designed by Tamara Shatar, who holds a PhD in Agricultural Data Science. She focused her extensive experience and skills in modelling using machine learning, simulation and other techniques to create a course with depth and applicability.
The course is consistently well reviewed by students.
"Very well presented and structured. Thank you for such a fruitful day." - Python Basics, Sydney
"Great trainer, structure, material and manual. I have completed programming courses before but this one just made more sense! I'm sure it was the trainer. Looking forward to the Intermediate course when it is available." - Using R Beginner Sydney, Australia
Is Python compatible with Microsoft?
Python can be used within a number of Microsoft products. In Power BI, reusable Python scripts can be used to manipulate data and create visualizations. In Azure, machine learning models can be written in Python and trained and deployed within the Azure Machine Learning Workspace.
What is Remote Training?
Remote training at Nexacu, means our team of experienced trainers will deliver your training virtually. With remote learning students can access our usual classroom training courses via video conferencing, ask questions, participate in discussion and share their screen with the trainer if they need help at any point in the course. Students have the same level of participation and access to the trainer as they would in classroom training sessions.
