  • Accessibility:
    Any working aged Texan can take this 10-block course and earn credit from public universities in Texas. To maximize the opportunity, students with at least 60 hours of college credit or professionals with on-the-job experience, can take a final DASCA exam to earn a professional ‘ABDA™’ certification (Associate Big Data Analyst).
  • Value:
    Rather than investing years into learning a single discipline, you’ll gain industry-leading skills from a large & diverse community in a discipline that transcends all industries. To add to that value, this certification can also be converted into college credits within the Texas State University System. Check out all of the pathways this course can create for you!
