The certificate requires completion of 9 courses. Each course typically contains 3-6 modules with an average effort of 2 to 4 hours per module. If learning part-time (e.g. 1 module per week), it would take 6 to 12 months to complete the entire certificate. If learning full-time (e.g. 1 module per day) the certificate can be completed in 2 to 3 months.

This certificate is open for anyone with any job and academic background. No prior computer programming experience is necessary, but is an asset.

If you have already completed some of the courses in this Professional Certificate, either individually or as part of another specialization, they will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish the Professional Certificate faster. You will only need to complete the courses that you have not yet completed.
I have already completed the "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization. Can I still enrol for this Professional Certificate?
Yes, absolutely. Any courses that you have already completed as part of that Specialization will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish the Professional Certificate faster.
Which should I enroll for - "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization, or this "Data Science Professional Certificate"?
This Professional Certificate consists of 9 courses. The "Introduction to Data Science" Specialization has 4 courses, all of which are also included in this Professional Certificate.
If you are unsure about your ability to commit to the level of effort and time required to complete this Professional Certificate, we recommend starting with the Introduction to Data Science Specialization, which has fewer courses. And if after earning the specialization certificate you are still determined to continue building your Data Science skills, you can then enroll for this Professional Certificate and then just complete the courses that are not in the specialization.
I have already completed the "Applied Data Science" Specialization. Can I still enroll for this Professional Certificate?
Yes, absolutely. Any courses that you have already completed as part of that Specialization will be marked as "Complete". So you do not have to take those courses again and will be able to finish this Professional Certificate faster.
