The Dataiku Academy is excited to announce its latest learning path, focused on providing both foundational knowledge in Machine Learning practices as well as introductions to more advanced topics, helping you enhance your skills as an ML Practitioner.


The new learning path includes three mandatory courses: Machine Learning  Basics, Scoring Basics, and Interactive Visual Statistics. 

There are also a number of optional courses that will open over the following weeks to help you hone your ML skills and learn even more. If you’re new to machine learning, you may want to explore the introductory courses around ML theory and statistical analysis. If you’re already familiar with the basics, you can extend your knowledge in the areas of image classification, natural language processing (NLP), and time series.

These optional courses are not required to receive certification, but are recommended as supplemental materials to reinforce concepts and learning.

Once you’ve completed the mandatory courses, you’ll be able to take the  ML Practitioner certificate assessment from the Dataiku Academy and share your accomplishments with others via a dedicated Community badge.

Alex (or anyone else),

Can you explain how the ML Practioner certification differs (or not) from the L2 certification?

Hi @tim-wright 

To confirm, L1 certification is now the Core Designer Learning Path.  As you already mentioned there is also the ML Practitioner Learning Path as well.

However, L2 Certification is still available as:

  • L2 for Advanced Designer
  • L2 for Administrator

As a Dataiku Partner, you can reach out to my colleague @aherbst,  Partnership Operations Manager, for more support about L2 Certification. You can also email if you have any further questions.
