The newly expanded program is designed for working professionals looking to make a career change, offering flexibility depending on students’ desired learning outcomes and future career aspirations. In the first 12 weeks of the bootcamp, students will get a deep dive into the fundamentals of data science and machine learning in Python to prepare them for careers in data analysis. In the new four-week Data Enrichment track, students will get further exposure into data pipelines, including SQL, how to extract, transform and load data, statistics for model selection, A/B testing, and a group project to help them prepare for careers in data science.
During the last four weeks, both REI-sponsored students will be assigned a mentor and will have a guaranteed interview with the organization upon graduation. All students from this cohort, whether sponsored or not, will graduate with knowledge of working within a portfolio of projects at REI, a skillset applicable to any business.
