Course Overview

“Picture is Worth a thousand words“, is a common saying. It is focused on the idea that a complex system can be presented in a single still image that everyone can understand and apprehend. The force of the data is presented through its visualization, and the visualization represents the medium, a way to explore, present and express the meaning of data.

This Certified Data Visualization Professional training course will teach participants how to visualize the data using different tools and techniques. Using Excel and PowerPoint will be the basis of this programme, but the use of other software will also be discussed in depth through the training. The participants will learn how to incorporate statistics, design and aesthetics of both the data and the final visualization. It starts with basic graphs and charts and evolves through dashboards, infographics, and multimedia presentations. The true power of the visual presentation of the data will be explored through examples from different industries, from production, through marketing to graphic design and multimedia.
