Instructor Led In Classroom

Newcomp can directly deliver  IBM Business Analytics courses for Business Intelligence, Performance Management, and IBM Advanced Analytics through the use of in-class training facilities.

Currently,  in-class courses are offered in Markham, Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax, and Edmonton. Please note that classes can be added to new areas based on demand.

Instructor Led Online

Students receive the same quality as an in-class course, with a live instructor and the ability to participate in hands-on labs through real-life examples.

ILOs help cut costs by reducing time and travel as they can be taken from home or the office and require only the use of a computer, high-speed wired internet and a headset.

On-Demand

This course is available on-demand: request a specific course, location, time frame and/or format by reaching out to us directly at training@newcomp.com. This offering increases schedule flexibility and allows us to accommodate individuals with different availabilities.

Self Paced

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.
