Have a question: I did a Specialist Diploma in Big Data Analytics at Nanyang Polytechnic, and have just recently completed and been conferred the diploma. Will that be acceptable in lieu of Datacamp's Data Scientist track? Thank you.

Hi Arifin,

DataCamp's 'Data Scientist with Python' career track is not a requirement for the AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP). 

We would like to invite you to apply for AIAP here!

Do remember to include projects you have done previously or tools/libraries you have used in your CV.


All the best!:)
