Educator Workshops

Professors and instructors can learn SAS® – and develop course curriculums – with our free professional development workshops.

In preparing practicing statisticians for the workplace, we find that knowledge of SAS and experience using it in real-world consulting projects is a real advantage in their job hunt, as well as in their career. Alan Elliott Director, Statistical Consulting Center, Department of Statistical Science Southern Methodist University

Sharpen your skills so you can teach analytics to the next generation of technology professionals.


  • Free sessions throughout the year. We keep your time and budget constraints in mind by providing free sessions that accommodate your academic schedule.
  • Training on a variety of topics. Stay on top of the latest technologies – from predictive modeling to machine learning – so your students are learning today's most valuable skills.
  • High-quality instruction from industry experts. When it comes to learning and teaching analytics, there's no better source than the industry leader.

What's Included

  • Free course materials. Sessions include materials that you can use in your own classroom. You'll get PowerPoint slides, course notes and data sets.

Machine Learning and Open Source Integration

Learn to upload data into the in-memory distributed environment, analyze your data and create predictive models in the SAS® Viya® and Python Integration for Machine Learning workshop. You’ll also learn to use the Python API to take control of SAS CAS actions from Jupyter Notebook.
