4-week intensive workshop (online)

This four-week intensive workshop (online) with Alina Chhantel and Dr. Peter Graif will introduce participants to IBM's SPSS statistical analysis package. No prior background in the social sciences is assumed, though some familiarity with basic research techniques will help participants to make the most of what they learn. This is a hands-on training, and participants will leave with the confidence and experience they need to use SPSS effectively.

Due to the highly interactive nature of this program, attendance will be limited to twelve participants. We expect the workshop to fill up, so apply early to guarantee a spot.

I've attended many SPSS trainings before, but I never had a practical understanding. This was very helpful, and I am able to use this now to help with my research.
