PRMIA has partnered with QuantUniversity to offer this course this introductory course designed for financial professionals. Over the three modules, we will discuss key concepts needed to write and understand Python. Rather than bogging you with all the syntactical details, we will focus on the key elements and packages giving you just enough orientation to start your Data science journey in Python.

Using QuAcademy, our remote-learning platform and Jupyter notebooks, we will discuss the key elements of Python and discuss how to write applications working with datasets.

This course serves as an optional pre-requisite for the popular self-study course, Machine Learning and AI for Financial Professionals Course.  Note: All classes are pre-recorded and interactive with videos, slides, demos and fully functional code.
