November 9, 2021 - Defence Stories


You’re invited to enroll in the HR-Civ Certificate in Data Excellence program (accessible only on the National Defence network) today. Whether you work with data every day or consider yourself a beginner, this program is for you.  Designed in ascending Tiers, this program will build your understanding and use of data, from the ground up.

Why does data matter? As you progress through this certificate program, you’ll learn about the ways we can use data to improve our work as we support the Defence Team in their mission. Data helps us measure, predict and understand, leading to improved decision making. With data, we can uncover patterns and trends, spot issues, and discover new opportunities to improve our services.

The HR-Civ Certificate in Data Excellence program (accessible only on the National Defence network) is designed to build data literacy across our organization, but the real power of data is unleashed as we collaborate together, with our new data knowledge. Data points mean nothing without people across our organization to see them, discuss them, and act on them. Data needs all of us. Together, we can accomplish so much more.

Download your Tier 1: Data Explorer course today (accessible only on the National Defence network) and be part of this exciting learning opportunity.
