  • 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

How to Register:

Choose your workshop and enroll

  • Every workshop enrollment opens in a new tab so you can add additional workshops if needed.
  • Be sure workshop selections do not overlap as there are simultaneous tracks.

Sign in with your SAS profile

  • Your SAS profile must use your academic email to process your registration and access course materials.
  • Priority is given to first-time registrants, so seats are not guaranteed.
  • Courses fill quickly, but new workshops are added regularly.

Save the date and join us in class

  • Upon checkout, look for an email that confirms processing of your registration request.  
  • Next, you'll get an email notifying you that you're enrolled in a course, or waitlisted.
  • If you're waitlisted, a follow-up email will confirm when a seat is available, moving you from waitlisted to enrolled.
