Provide the basics for manipulating and rendering data with the SAS system.
A key part of teaching is to make students able to solve and solve simple statistical problems by using SAS, in particular through the use of the online manual and examples. The section on building and presenting reports is very much taken care of.
The lessons are held in a computer lab. The language part always follows an exercise that is carried out by the students and whose solution is discussed collectively.
34 hours of the course are reserved by two external teacheres using SAS in their professions. Here are some examples and the SQL proc is introduced.

The class will start according to the academic calendar.
A written test and the preparation and submission of a statistical analysis carried out through SAS.
Through the written test, it is evaluated the ability to draw simple SAS programs. Instead, the preparation and presentation of an activity carried out through SAS software aims at assessing self-employment and team-work skills.
Students with DSA certification ("specific learning disabilities"), disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take account of individual learning arrangements and provide appropriate compensatory tools.
