Firstly, we do not believe that our courses are necessarily substitutes for data science and web development courses at your university. If you want to take such courses at your school, we think our courses can complement those courses very nicely. From our plethora of conversations with graduate business, public policy, medical, legal, and undergraduate students, we learned that often times the data science and web development courses offered in universities focus on theoretical aspects. Students take the courses but have significant trouble applying the learned concepts during internships and full-time jobs. Cognitir solves this problem by equipping students with practical tools and skills so that they can apply course learnings from the get-go. The first reason why you should take a Cognitir class is to efficiently and effectively bridge theoretical concepts with practical applications.
Secondly, from our different conversations with graduate and undergraduate students, we learned that tuition is expensive! Courses can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars, and students are usually limited to a maximum number of courses that they can sign up for per term. Thus, course selection becomes very strategic and involves tradeoffs. For example, you might be enrolled in a top MBA program and have access to data science and web development courses but also have access to courses taught by world-renowned business faculty members. Do you really want to forgo the opportunity to learn from business experts in their fields and spend precious course credits on electives that you can learn through external providers such as Cognitir at a fraction of the cost? The second reason why you should take a Cognitir class is so that you can maximize the spending of valuable course credits on electives that you may only be able to take as a university student.
Thirdly, you should sign up for a Cognitir class because we teach you the theoretical and practical applications symbiotically in a very short amount of time - one to two days depending on the course - as opposed to over several months. This gives you the ability to quickly learn and market the skills on your resume for job applications and ample time to practice learned concepts. This is a massive benefit over the alternative which involves maintaining constant motivation and interest throughout long, drawn-out course experiences.
It is true that many companies already have in-house training, but typically experienced business professionals within the organization prepare and execute such in-house trainings. In-house trainings require significant time investment. Instructors must plan out the training, prepare/update materials, and deliver the in-house training. The preparation and execution time spent on internal trainings comes at an opportunity cost, which is experienced business professionals cannot simultaneously focus their attentions on revenue-generating and cost-reducing opportunities for the company. It would seem that given the valuable skillsets of seasoned business professionals, the highest ROI projects would be revenue-generating and cost-reducing activities instead of executing in-house trainings. Also, it is important to distinguish between knowing technical skills and being able to effectively teach them to others. Finding technical instructors who can effectively articulate challenging concepts to non-technical audiences is rare. It would seem that given the above, companies are better off outsourcing trainings instead of hosting in-house ones.
Cognitir specializes on data science and web development training for business and non-technical professionals. If you are a business and/or non-technical professional then Cognitir courses would be a great fit for you. Cognitir courses are not designed to train aspiring Google engineers and data scientists. Instead, they are designed to give business and other non-technical professionals the right dose of technical skills so that they can become better, more data-driven decision makers.
Cognitir instructors are qualified to lead trainings because they have: practical technical and relevant teaching experiences. Instructors who lead Cognitir courses have experiences in applying data science and web development concepts both within corporations and startups. Cognitir instructors bring engaging and meaningful real-world vignettes to live courses to help participants better understand concepts. Furthermore, Cognitir instructors have relevant high school, university, and corporate level teaching experiences, which have allowed instructors to create and execute the highest quality training courses.
