The purpose of the two-day Level 1 course is to acquaint new users with the bulk of IDEA’s basic functionality and breadth of tools. Training is immediately hands-on, so participants have the opportunity to quickly interact with the software by completing exercises and case studies using sample data.
This two-day course is ideal for those who have completed the IDEA Data Analysis Level 1 training or have a sound understanding of IDEA functionality. Participants learn more advanced topics, such as creating complex equations or criteria, automating tasks and connecting databases.
This three-day course introduces experienced users to more advanced topics devoted to workflow automation with IDEAScript macros. IDEAScript, the IDEA programming language behind IDEAScript macros, is similar to and compatible with Visual Basic for Applications, the macro language used in Excel®, PowerPoint®, Word®, Access® and other Microsoft® Office® applications.
This one-day course was developed to refresh long-time IDEA users and people that took the required training but want to be better prepared to write the Certified IDEA Data Analyst (CIDA) exam. This course was written using the concept of a case study to cover most of the core functionality of IDEA and focus on the content and the style of the CIDA exam.
