Teradata University Network Offers Free Training Towards Technical Certification

"Like many companies, Cardinal Health is exploring the strategic use of advanced analytics to help us meet the needs of our customer. The need to truly understand our data naturally drives demand for more highly skilled analytical data professional – 'data scientists' if you will. We need to expand the talent pool quickly and I'm excited that the TUN online training program is available to help address the current demand," said Susan Watson, Director of Enterprise Customer Data for Cardinal Health. Watson is a member of the Teradata PARTNERS steering committee and the Teradata University Network advisory board.

Can On-line Technical Training Help Companies with Big Analytics? 

A survey of students, recent graduates, and faculty conducted for the Teradata University Network showed that 68 percent of the students reported being interested or very interested in the student certification program.

"The certification process is definitely tailored to the student. You can complete the learning modules on your own time, and end of chapter reviews and interactive quizzes help make sure you are ready for the exam. I think the program was a great step in teaching me how to learn beyond a university. It challenges you to take responsibility of your own learning in order to forward your career," said student Rick Stinogel of Arizona State University.

Degan Kettles, also of Arizona State University, said, "I was already familiar with many transactional database systems, but data warehousing was new to me.  The certification process made me feel competent in my understanding of what it is, how it works, and how it can be applied to support diverse needs in an enterprise."   

Likewise, two out of three faculty, 67 percent, reported they would encourage or strongly encourage their students obtain Teradata certification.
