Data Science Training Provider Metis Launches Online Flex Bootcamps and Short Immersive Courses to Help Professionals Upskill and Maintain a Work-Life Balance

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#datascience–Metis, a leading provider of data science and analytics skills training for individuals and businesses, is launching a new Online Flex format of its bootcamps and short immersive courses. The new format will make its programs more accessible to professionals who want to continue working during the programs, need to prioritize work-family balance, or live in a non-U.S. time zone.

The Online Flex programs combine on-demand lectures that let students work on their own schedules, with live 1:1 support from data scientist instructors, regular office hours to review students’ projects and questions, and live interactive access to their peer community. Clear deadlines for assignments, along with organized modules, provide structure and accountability many students crave.

Bootcamp students in the Online Flex format will receive the same high caliber of career support as Metis’s Live Online students, with 1:1 career support until they secure employment, in addition to a dedicated Career Week post-graduation. Career Week will be laser focused on helping graduates get hired through a series of workshops, speaker presentations, technical mock interviews, and an employer panel. The new Online Flex bootcamps include:

  • Data Analytics
  • Data Science
  • Data Science and Engineering
  • Data Science and Machine Learning

To help students get started on their data science journey, Metis is offering an introductory tuition that is 30 percent less than regular tuition on all Online Flex bootcamps, for those who apply by May 17 and enroll by June 4.

Metis’s Online Flex short immersive courses are designed for students who want to gain in-demand data science and analytics skills in just one month. Unlike the bootcamps, there is open enrollment, with no admissions process. Students will learn from elite instructors in this flexible, part-time format, while applying what they’ve been taught to a final project that can be added to a professional portfolio. Short immersive course alumni can apply the amount of tuition paid for one course toward enrollment in an upcoming bootcamp upon admittance.

“Being able to offer these Online Flex bootcamps and short immersive programs to more students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to enroll is something we are incredibly excited about. We know how busy our potential students are, many of whom are juggling work responsibilities with busy personal lives. These new options provide the kind of flexibility that many have been looking for. Now they can learn in-demand data skills, while also continuing to work and spend much needed time with family and doing other activities they enjoy,” said Jason Moss, president and founder, Metis.
