In our training courses, you will learn all the basics and skills you need to start your career or gain professional qualification as a data expert. The training is a remote live training with our data experts, so that you get the learning content in direct exchange and dialogue. The bootcamps are limited to a small number of participants in order to ensure the most individual support possible.

The live training with our data experts consists of a mixture of short theory units, small quizzes and practical exercises that consolidate what has been learned, as well as programming exercises to get directly into the practical application and practice of the tools and skills. In our boot camps, you will be ideally prepared for later use in your career.

In addition to the most important skills of a data expert, you will also receive training to become an IT sustainability officer. This additional qualification with an ITIL® certificate enables you to be the contact person in the company for all questions relating to environmental protection, energy efficiency and sustainable management in IT, regardless of your regular tasks.

At the end of our funded training courses (Data Analyst, Data Scientist and Data Engineer), you can also expect a final project. After successful completion, you will receive a certificate of completion from us that certifies your participation and the knowledge and skills you have gained, as well as an external ITIL4® certificate “Sustainability in Digital and IT”.

Even without a formal university degree, it is possible to become a data analyst, data scientist or data engineer. Many companies now place more emphasis on the actual skills and knowledge of candidates than on formal qualifications, such as a degree. They value candidates who can demonstrate that they have acquired the necessary skills and worked on projects that demonstrate their skills. If you have the willingness to learn new things and immerse yourself passionately in the topics of big data, nothing stands in the way of your career.

Here are some steps you can follow to become a Data Analyst, Data Scientist, or Data Engineer:

  1. Learn the basics: The fundamentals of data analysis and data science include statistics, probability theory, and data visualization. If you don’t feel confident in this area yet, you can, for example, take part in our basic course “How to start coding”.
  2. Acquire programming skills: Python and R are the most popular programming languages in data science. You should learn at least one of them. Knowledge of SQL is also important because a lot of data is stored in relational databases. In our bootcamps you will learn Python, as well as SQL, from the basics to advanced knowledge.
  3. Learn how to analyze data: You need to learn how to collect, cleanse, analyze, and visualize data. In our bootcamps, our trainers will show you how to implement this in a very practical way in the “Databases, Models and Visualization” module.
  4. Work on hands-on projects: By working on your own projects, you can apply what you’ve learned and put your skills to the test. For example, in your final project of our bootcamps, you can find an interesting dataset and try to gain useful insights from it.


As you can see, with commitment and further training at Greenbootcamps, you will gain all the skills you need as a data specialist to be able to enter professional life directly. There are many advanced topics in data science, such as machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and many others. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you should try to familiarize yourself with these topics.
