Chicago, Ill., Sept. 3, 1999? Cuyahoga Community College (CCC) of Cleveland, Ohio and SPSS Inc. have announced that they will be offering continuing education and workforce development classes in the nation's first data mining certificate program. In partnership with SPSS Inc., CCC's program will teach the cross industry standard process for data mining (CRISP-DM) methodology as well as emphasize the critical skills necessary to conduct successful data mining initiatives. Using an assortment of SPSS' software the certificate program will focus on the manufacturing, health care, higher education and insurance/financial services industries, attracting participants from those disciplines as well as business and IT programs.

The objective of the data mining certificate program is to establish a level of practical competency among the participants. Employers can be assured that those completing the CCC program have met the data mining standards established in cooperation with SPSS and based on the CRISP-DM methodology. Participants will receive instruction and evaluation in statistics and data mining subject areas as well as in-depth software training. Three application-specific certificates (Clementine, AnswerTree and SPSS) are available after completing a data mining module providing training in core-level skills. Upon completion of all three application/software certificates, a participant will be awarded a continuing education certificate recognizing the person as a "data mining professional."
