Please check that you meet the prerequisites for a course before you attend it.
Incus Data courses are intensive: we cover a lot of material in a short time. So we are serious when we say that you need to have certain knowledge and skills before you attend the course.
Do you think you are a fast learner, so you can skip the basics? Do you think that you can save money by going straight to the more advanced course? If you think that, you are wrong.
Meeting the prerequisites for a course is compulsory, not optional. And it is as much for your benefit as it is for ours and for the other delegates attending the course.
You benefit the most from training which is intended for your current level of skill. When you learn to drive a car, you first learn the basics of steering and changing gears. You don't start with parallel parking and hand-brake turns. The same applies to all types of learning.
Here's what happens when you attend a course and you don't have the required knowledge:
Our lecturers try to help everyone on the course. But it is unfair to the other delegates when you don't meet the prerequisites. Here's how it has a negative impact on them:
Good training is expensive. You waste your time and money if you attend a course that is too advanced for you.
We are very serious about prerequisites. If you do not meet the requirements, we reserve the right to move your booking to a more suitable course.
We set out the prerequisites for each course in the course outline. This varies from course to course. Here are some important rules::
What do we mean by experience in a language? You should know the concepts and syntax, and have at least 6 months work experience using it. If you attended a few classes at university or college, you are not ready.
If you are not sure if you you meet the requirements for a course, please contact us. One of our lecturers will talk to you, or we will arrange an assessment.
