The Certificate in Statistical Methods provides students with an opportunity to develop fundamental skills needed to apply advanced statistical methods to other disciplines. This program is not intended to fully prepare students for careers as statisticians or data scientists per se (e.g. the course requirements are not sufficient to meet the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) Associate Statistician (A.Stat.) accreditation nor are they sufficient to cover all methods/skills needed in current Data Sciencecareers). Rather the program is intended to give professionals (and future professionals) in many fields the skills to apply statistical methods to their activities, increasing their productivity.
