Which is the best course to get certification in R programming (classroom based or online)? I came across multiple sites but reading reviews that such certifications don’t help fetch a job in Data Analytics has made me skeptical. I have 2 years work experience as an analyst in actuarial support (used MS Excel, not Advanced level though) and am not working now. I have done Masters in Applied Economics prior to working as analyst. As I am pursuing non-actuarial/non-insurance analytics, I will be treated as a fresher and it seems without any certification, I will not get any opportunity. If anyone can share knowledge about this it will be very helpful.
