Come to Las Vegas for the Analytics Conference and make the most out of your week by attending training.

      You can find the conference + training prices here: The courses offered in conjunction with the conference cost much less than if you were to take the course in another city at another time. Please let me know if you have any further questions. I'm happy to help!
