How long does it take to learn any data field before I am “job-ready”?

First, you must realise that becoming skilled in any field is a journey. Even experienced professionals learn new things daily. Depending on your time commitment and ability to grasp new concepts, you can be job ready in 3 - 6 months.

 

Our DTS founder started building awesome data projects after 3 months of taking online courses. Your job readiness solely depends on your commitment to your data journey and we are here to help you realise your dream.​

What do I need to get started in the field of data?

You have to be curious, have a passion for working with data, discipline, a chosen career track (Data Science or Data Analytics or Data Engineering or Machine Learning etc.), a functioning computer with the relevant software/tools installed for your chosen data track.

For more information, see the links to the Data Science Track and Data Analytics Track. We have more Data tracks coming soon.

How easy is it to switch careers to Data Science / Analytics?

It is quite easy to switch careers with your interest and dedication in improving your skill set. Firstly, we do not advise you to quit your job if you do not have the required skill set displayed on the Tracks section of our website. Start small by building the required skills while on your current job and work on projects. 

However, if you have the luxury to take time off to learn these skills, you can do so. One of the DTS team members practiced Engineering for 4 years before switching careers. There are others who studied courses like Languages or Philosophy who are equally thriving as data professionals.
