Coming Soon: Data Literacy Certification

Put your data knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors to the test to set yourself apart

Who will this test be for?

The Data Literacy Level 1 and Level 2 certification exams are currently being developed. They are for anyone who wants to demonstrate their ability to read, understand, create and communicate data as information. Organizations need people with this critical set of competencies more than ever, and so do our communities and society as a whole.

For this reason, we’re creating this certification exam in order to help individuals differentiate themselves as data literate, and in order for organizations to ensure that they’re hiring talent that will help them implement a culture that realizes the value of data.

Ben is an exceptional teacher. Definitely in my top 5%. He invites learners to engage fully, answering questions with respect and providing ideas for further study. Ben showed us dozens of useful tips to present our data professionally and with integrity. He creates efficient lesson plans, designs useful homework exercises, and provides feedback and support that helps us all excel as busy, adult learners. I finished the class feeling that it was the highest value class I’d ever taken.

“Ben Jones is a fantastic teacher whose passion for data that leaves an impression. It’s hard not to get excited about data visualization in his class, between all the jaw-dropping examples and interesting history. I learned a lot and would highly recommend working with Ben if you’re looking to enter the data viz world!”

“Ben’s classroom presence and the ease with which he leads is inspiring. He has an infectious passion for Data that transcends into every single student bringing out the very best in them. He made me fall in love with data visualization. One of the things he said in the class that stuck with me is “with the power of data comes responsibility”.”

“In our class Ben expertly guided us through working with data and exploring how it touches our careers and lives. In each session I knew we’d learn useful tips and approaches to finding the stories in data. Every day I use the skills and insight Ben taught us.”

Sean Downing, Data Scientist

“Ben’s incredible depth of knowledge and passion for this field really shine through, and combined with his ability to explain the material in such a clear and straightforward manner really made the class valuable and fun.”

I feel very fortunate to have begun my data visualization training with Ben.  His ability to weave theory and practice together seamlessly left me with an understanding not just of how to assemble good visualizations, but why different data stories lend themselves to different visualization techniques.”
