R Programming Training: An Introduction for Data Analysis and Graphics

These training series are an introduction to the program language R with the purpose of getting familiar with the commands in such a way that participants will feel self-prepared to continue on their own.

R Programming Training Syllabus


Spring 2020 is full. We are registering for Summer 2020. If you register now, you will be in the waiting list for spring 2020. We strongly suggest to do so because there are always people who drop the course. Please register if you want to be in the waiting list. Participants in the waiting list who do not get into the spring course will have priority for the course in summer 2020.
