Teaching

We offer a wide variety of high quality statistical courses at different levels. In the last three years, we have taught about one hundred courses and are continuously developing new and exciting material.

Our teaching philosophy combines self-learning with explanatory sessions so that you can easily apply your new knowledge to your own research questions. 

We also develop courses upon request. Our trainers are experienced, qualified and friendly research scientists and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
