How to Learn SAS Online? With Tutor Support.
This particular course ‘SAS Online Tutor for Base Programming’ focuses on Base SAS Training. You will be learning the SAS programming language, so if you are SAS Enterprise Guide user, this course will bring you a lot of value. I have other courses that focus on more advanced SAS topics. (ie SAS SQL or PROC SQL).
My SAS Programming course is ideal for those who prefer to have some tutor support while learning at their own pace. I (Ermin) will be your SAS online tutor for base programming. This, and other advantages (outlined later on in the article), are why you should learn SAS on my site here, as opposed to buying my content on other platforms where I have uploaded (ie SAS Programming Complete Course on Udemy ).
I have been teaching SAS for many years on popular platforms like Udemy. I can tell you that based on student feedback and reviews, that prior to registering for my course, a good number of students were not sure how to learn SAS properly. You might be in that same situation. Nevertheless, after they completed the course, they were happy they chose my course. Why? Well, my favorite private messages from former students go something like: “I just passed my SAS interview/exam and it is all thanks to your course! I knew nothing about SAS programming before I bought your course. And I didn’t use any resource aside from your course”. You don’t know how happy these kinds of messages make me!
Flexible Video Tutorials with Support from a SAS Online Tutor for Base Programming
One great advantage of online courses and video tutorials is the flexibility. You get to watch the video tutorials when you have time and there is no deadline to complete the video tutorials. You can also ask questions right below a specific video lesson, and if you get really stuck, you can schedule a 30 minute appointment with me to discuss any difficulties. Do not hesitate to ask any questions at any point in your learning journey. Questions about a work project or homework are also welcome during this 30 minute appointment.
Why SAS Base Programming?
SAS can refer to both the software (developed by SAS Institute) but also the programming language itself. This SAS Programming course teaches you the language, the sas code, enabling you to use whichever software you choose.
If you are already working with SAS at your place of employment, you are probably looking for SAS Enterprise Guide training. While I don’t use Enterprise Guide in this course, the course will still be useful for those seeking SAS Enterprise Guide Training. SAS Enterprise Guide utilizes a point and click interface but you can choose to program instead of pointing and clicking. You’ll have a distinct advantage by learning how to program as very few people have the coding skills.
Software like World Programming System (source: World Programming System (Wiki) ) allows you to use the SAS language and produce the same results just if you were using SAS software (SAS Studio, SAS OnDemand, SAS Enterprise Guide, etc). This is the software that I personally use.
SAS, as of 2019, is very popular and in demand. Did you know that 92% of Fortune 100 companies use SAS? Companies like Honda, Nestle, Bank of America, and Lufthansa are just some of the companies that use SAS. (source: SAS.com Customer Stories )
If you are interested in working for these companies and enjoy data analysis, data management, data management, and statistical analysis, this is the ideal course for you.
