Four reasons to attend SAS training at SAS Global Forum


So, there’s a lot of talk about staying for the magic of Disney World after SAS Global Forum. What about arriving early for some SAS magic? A selection of some of the most popular SAS training courses is being offered Wednesday – Friday, April 18-20 prior to the conference.

Here’s some reasons we think you’ll want to attend a course:

  1. Get more out of the conference.  In the past, many attendees have told us that they prefer to take a SAS training course prior to attending a conference to brush up on their SAS skills. They say it helps them get more out of the conference papers and presentations because they’re in the right frame of mind to learn and soak up all of the information. They also say they are able to actively participate in more aspects of the conference program because their technical knowledge has been expanded.
  2. Practice good time management. If you’re already attending SAS Global Forum, you might as well take that SAS class you’ve been meaning to take while you’re there. Or, if you’re planning to take one of these SAS courses sometime this year, why not take it in Orlando and stick around to attend SAS Global Forum? Some people call it killing two birds with one stone.
  3. Expand your Orlando itinerary. We know you’re probably considering taking your family to Disney World. By arriving early, you’ll have more time in Orlando to make use of those flexible Walt Disney World Park Hopper Passes. Or check out the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios. We are offering 1, 2 and 3 day courses prior to the conference, so it’s easy to balance your SAS time with your vacation time.
  4. Take advantage of the discount. The pre-SAS Global Forum training courses (and SAS Certification exams) are all 15% off!  That may be the only argument you need to convince your manager to send you to Orlando a few days earlier.
