Take a free e-Course at SAS Global Forum


Hello! I hope you had a chance to read about e-Learning in last week’s blog.

For those of you who want to see and try e-Learning, please come visit me at the e-Learning booth at SAS Global Forum in Orlando.   In the weeks to come I will tell you more about what the future holds for e-learning (think mobile and iPad!).  To see what your future holds, why don’t you stop by the booth and try your hand at the Certification Practice exam for Base Programming free of charge?  If you find you are not quite ready for the exam you can log onto the SAS Programming 1 e-course and see how that will help you prepare for the exam. Those are just two of many e-course offerings you can sign up and try for free while at the conference.

So plan to stop by the booth and sign up for your free access.  You are welcome to try the courses for one hour.  Timeslots do fill up quickly so be sure to reserve yours.  I look forward to seeing you there!

    I just completed your SAS programming 1 elearning course and it has been an excellent experience. I have recommended it to many of my colleagues. I realize the online course is only available in English. I have already been contacted by SAS personel in that regard.
    Again, what a wonderful experience to have followed this course. Congradulations to the whole team for such a job well done!
