SAS Programming   Total 40 hours.

Class books will be supplied in the class, you only need have your own SAS software to take the class.


This SAS class is unique not only because all the base SAS programming skills are taught in the class but also because the content includes how to access Oracle and SQL Server databases from SAS (this topic is not taught in other SAS base classes or books) and how to use SAS PROC SQL. After completing the courses of this class, the students should have the ability to import and export raw data files, manipulate and transform data, combine SAS data sets, create basic detail and summary reports using SAS procedures, and identify and correct data syntax and programming logic errors. The students should also be familiar with the enhancements and new functionality that are available in SAS 9

The course includes 10 sessions, each session is 4 hours class, taught by top SAS expert in Silicon Valley.

You need have SAS software installed on your PC before start this course.
