# Statistics Level 2 Training Course

stats2

## Duration

28 hours (usually 4 days including breaks)

## Requirements

The delegates should have completed Statistics Level 1 course or have equivalent work experience.

## Overview

This training course covers advanced statistics. It explains most of the tools commonly used in research, analysis and forecasting. It provides short explanations of the theory behind the formulas.

This course does not relate to any specific field of knowledge, but can be tailored if all the delegates have the same background and goals.

Some basic computer tools are used during this course (notably Excel and OpenOffice)
