Event description


As the major banks in Canada have built their own data science teams and started to carry out proof-of-concept projects, data scientists who are able to use big data tools, like Hadoop, Hive, Scala, and Spark have become one of the most in-demand and highest-paying jobs in Canada. With our rich experience in data science training, we have designed the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow curriculum for our students. We believe that practice makes perfect, so our course is embedded with labs and projects to help you hone your skills.

Founded in Toronto, WeCloudData has well-connected networks in data science and data analytics fields in various industries in Canada, making sure that we offer firsthand job opportunity information to our students.

We assembled the top talents from famous data-driven companies in North America to design the most comprehensive, effective and cost-efficient learning path to help you land your first data scientist job.

Our alumni have started their data scientist jobs in many large companies and enjoying their work every single day.
