Amazing course that should be taken by anyone interested in learning data analytics and data visualization. Well structured, challenging, and completely rewarding. 15+ years of experience packed into 3 months or less of training depending on your schedule. You not only become a Cognos "Jedi", but the personal touch Kwame brings to this is not found in any other course. Kwame was not only an instructor but a mentor and shares his journey along the way for you to follow and become inspired. I've not heard of an online instructor being so contactable over WhatsApp to help you along the way - truly amazing! Great for all ages and experience levels too! I'm eagerly awaiting anything else Kwame puts out there and feel very welcomed into his learning community that I will continue to follow all of his material and keep in touch with the other students within the course via the Facebook group, YouTube channels, and the personal communications I now have. I'm sad this over but feel very well placed to begin my new career and still have all of the content to access for another 9 months. Thanks Kwame - words cannot describe how grateful I am to have taken this!

Coglitics gave me a unique and unparalleled learning experience at a generous cost. I learned how to implement basic to advanced features in the latest version of IBM Cognos Analytics within 30 days. Initially, I was expecting to see complex SQL and MDX syntax but instead, I was surprised to see just some simple ‘If, Else, Then, Case, Cast, Dates’ syntax, accompanied with high level of creativity, logical thinking, and passion for data. Kwame is such a great mentor and highly skilled in IBM Cognos Analytics software.

Kwame Awuku is my new best friend (and he doesn't even know it)

you can feel the passion for data analytics when he's teaching and it gives me the sense that what he is teaching is the perfect fit for me. More than a course study to follow it is a lifestyle change he is introducing and I'm all in!

Thank you so much at Kwame, the Cognos Jedi. I was finally able to start the course and to be honest. I was a bit scared to start something new that I did not know so much about. The way you were able to explain things at the beginning of the module has given me the confidence to tackle the entire course. I can't wait to continue with the second module after I get back from work.

Why Did I Become a Data Analytics Consultant?

I just wanted to be happy and free.

I did not learn Cognos Analytics or Data Analytics in college. I learned it on the job through hard work and a burning desire to have an easy-going lifestyle. I knew having a highly sought after technology skill would 1. Offer opportunities to work from home or from abroad. 2. Scale my earnings to 6 figures and beyond fastest 3. Offer me the option to start my own consulting company if I wanted. 4. Work as a freelancer or independent contractor. 5. Work for any of the nearly 30,000 corporations that currently use the Cognos Analytics software...And I was right. If you take my advice and you work hard you can achieve success fast and you can get your foot in the door at the best companies in the world. This is very important for new graduates and young people in general.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS! (FAQ)

Your top 9 questions answered!

  • When does the course begin and end?

    The course begins when you sign up. It is self-paced. You have 1 year to complete all of the course materials. I will also be around to answer any questions during your enrollment via email, whatsapp (preferred), or Facebook group. Based on my availability, I will do 'live webinars' to answer any student questions. Join my Facebook group, it is extremely important. The content I share everyday is changing lives.

  • Are there any pre-requisites?

    Yes. You should sign up on IBM's website so that you can use the free trial version of the tool to learn. Using the free trial you will have full access to the IBM Cognos Analytics tool. This is the tool that you would be using to create your portfolio of samples for your job interviews.

  • Do I need to download anything?

    No, you do not. But you will need an internet connection and a web-browser like Internet explorer, safari, chrome or firefox.

  • Do you need a degree or previous work experience?

    No, absolutely not. I did not learn how to become a Data Analyst from any college, I learned it on the job. Anybody with average intelligence can learn the tool in other to perform the analytics. You will be delivering reports and colorful dashboards using the Cognos analytics tool based on the company's requirement. If you are creative or business minded it will not feel like work. You will also be prepared to become a data analytics consultant immediately after the course because you will have all the technical skills which are by far the most crucial requirement for employment. You should read this article about college degrees in 2019: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/top-companies-are-hiring-more-candidates-without-a-4-year-degree-2019-4

  • How long does it take for me to finish and also get a job?

    You can start using your skills immediately. I have had a lot of requests for my services from digital marketing agencies, car dealerships, retailers, sales etc. You can also work for any of the 29000 companies that use IBM Cognos Analytics as a contractor or employee if you fancy that career path. I think a determined person could finish the course within 2 to 3 months. But you have 1 full year to access the course anytime afterwards.

  • Can I work from home, start my data analytics agency or become a digital nomad?

    Yes. Master this tool and you can start attracting your own clients and yes, you can chose to work from anywhere in the world if you become good at it. You can live the digital nomad lifestyle like me, achieve location independence, and you can enjoy the advantages of living abroad. I personally enjoy working from Ghana, Colombia and Brazil. For some people you might just want to be home more so that you can see your kids or avoid the long painful communte to work everyday. My life is good and I am free and happy.

  • So what can you guarantee besides a job?

    I can guarantee that you will have a far better chance than nearly all of your peers after you graduate from my course because you will have a truly potent and useful data related skill. The portfolio of data analytics samples that you would walk away with is critical for success. In the technology field, the portfolio of samples you create is your killer advantage and your superpower. You can simply show them to employers to get hired fast.

  • Is this programming? Math required? Is it Data Science?

    No, this is not a programming course. Yes, you will learn how to use AI to analyze data but you will not be creating any AI models, that is Data Science. You need high school math like addition, subtraction and some percentage calculations, that is all. No, this is not a data science course but it could be a great beginner course for those who wish to study Machine learning or Al or Data science in general.
