Predictive Modeling with IBM SPSS Modeler demonstrates how to develop models to predict categorical and continuous outcomes, using such techniques as neural networks, decision trees, logistic regression, support vector machines, and Bayesian network models. Use of the binary classifier and numeric predictor nodes to automate model selection is included. Feature selection and detection of outliers are discussed. Expert options for each modeling node are reviewed in detail and advice is provided on when and how to use each model. Students will also learn how to combine two or more models to improve prediction.
Please note: This course is only available in the self-paced format.

Appendix A: Decision List
This advanced course follows either "Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler and Data Mining" or Advanced Data Preparation with IBM SPSS Modeler is essential for anyone who wishes to become familiar with the full range of modeling techniques available in IBM SPSS Modeler to create predictive models.
- General computer literacy
- Experience using IBM SPSS Modeler (formerly Clementine) , including familiarity with the IBM SPSS Modeler environment, creating streams, reading in data files, assessing data quality and handling missing data (including the type and data audit nodes), basic data manipulation (including the derive and select nodes), and creation of models.
You should complete:
- Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler and Data Mining
Completion of Advanced Data Preparation with IBM SPSS Modeler is strongly encouraged. An introductory course in statistics, or equivalent experience, would be helpful for the statistics-based modeling techniques.
Students can receive the same high-quality training, with the same courseware at their own speed and schedule with SPVC. Individuals with busy schedules can complete a course over a 30-day timeframe at a lower price than in-class or ILO courses. Please note that there is no live interaction with an instructor in this format.
