Continuing Statistics Training Scheme 

  • Come to 6 day-courses, get a 7th free! You will be given a card when you come to your first course and a stamp for every course you attend until you're ready to claim your 7th day-course for free.
  • Email us to be added to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our latest news and the latest dates for future statistics courses 

Our statistics courses are designed for anyone who requires an understanding of research methodology and statistical analyses. The training we provide will allow non-statisticians to interpret published research and/or undertake their own research studies.

No prior statistical knowledge is assumed for our introductory course ('Introduction to Research Methodology and Statistics'), but all other courses assume that the basics are understood. All of our courses use practical examples from commonly used peer reviewed journals and examples incorporating real datasets. Extensive notes are provided for all courses. Lecture sessions are interspersed with practical examples to ensure that everyone has understood the principles. We strive to create a relatively informal learning atmosphere, where participants are not afraid to ask questions or voice any confusion.
