Q: What is the ADAPT Program? 

A: Advancing Data and Analytic Potential Together (ADAPT) is intended for those who are impacted by COVID-19. As a result of changes in employment, we are providing resources and our Community-supported data science and analytics skills (from simple manipulation to prediction and forecasting with data) as well as a 90-day Alteryx Designer license for free.

 

Typically, developing the skills within the domain of data science and analytics can be challenging because the financial burdens of tools, expertise, and training can be costly, but not in this program! We will ensure you have all the resources and tools to be successful. Together We Solve!

 

Q: How will the ADAPT program help me succeed?

After completing the ADAPT program, participants can leverage their status as citizen data scientists and can re-enter the workforce with a more robust resume and skillset. With a global shortage of data scientists worldwide, these skills are in high demand and will well-equip you to prepare for re-employment. Even after program completion, you are able to continue your learning and sharpen your skills as a member of the Alteryx Community.

 

Q: What would I receive as a participant of ADAPT?

A. Upskill your analytics capabilities without the financial hurdles. Once accepted into the program, you’ll receive:

  • Access to a three-part course:
    • Intro to ADAPT/Data
    • Data Fundamentals and Core Certification
    • Predictive Analytics for the Business Analyst
  • Access to a 90-day license of Alteryx Designer
  • Access to thousands of data science and analytics experts, user groups and more resources within the Alteryx Community
  • 1:1 Alteryx associate support through the Virtual Solution Center

Q: How does the licensing work in the ADAPT program?

A. It is important to us that we can ensure you have access to our platform to execute world-class analytics. As a member of the program, you are eligible to receive up to two separate 90-day licenses. One 90 day license is provisioned after registering for the program, and another is delivered Core Certification is passed while active on the ADAPT 90 day license from registration. Each of these license will be set with a fixed expiration date 90 days from the day either of these milestones is achieved. If a program member passes Core Certification 60 days into the program, an additional 90 days will be given from the date of certification to support enrollment in the 30-day free period provisioned via the Udacity Nanodegree program.

 

Example:

A Member Registers on June 1st will receive license with an expiration date 90 days later on August 30th. If the program member passes Core Certification (congrats!) 60 days after registration on July 31st, a 90-day key will be given on August 1st  with an expiration date of October 30 to support the 30 days on the Udacity Platform and additional AFG projects. In this scenario, the total time of license coverage of the program would be 150 days. 

 

Note: Program members who have not passed Core Certification within 90 days of the program will not be eligible to receive an the additional license. If you are looking to maximize your license, we recommend not taking the Core Certification on the 90th day and risk failing and not qualifying for the second license (certification can only be attempted every seven days). If you find you have progressed through our program ahead of schedule and would like to continue hold an Alteryx For Good license to volunteer of non-profits, education, and other volunteer opportunities, please reach out to alteryxforgood@alteryx.com.

 

Q: Who can participate in ADAPT? 

A. Anyone whose employment status was affected by COVID-19 is eligible to apply to the ADAPT program. For example, those who are unemployed, furloughed, placed on leave, have reduced hours, etc. Individuals of all skill levels, including those who may not have had any prior experience with data, are encouraged to apply.

 

Q: What does it cost to participate in ADAPT? 

A: The only investment needed here is time – nothing else! 

 

Q: Should I share this with my friends, family, and peers? 

A: Please! Sharing experiences together can be one of the effective methods of learning! 

 

Q: How long will it take to finish the program? 

A: Pacing will be entirely up to each participant. If dedicating 1 hour a day, the program will take up to three months, but could be finished within a month with 40-hour weeks.  

 

Q: What will I need to participate in the program? 

A: You’ll need a computer with a Windows operating system (or Parallels on a Mac), an Alteryx Community account, and an Alteryx Designer license key (to be distributed by email after registration). 

 

Q: How do I register for the Alteryx Community 

A: Instructions for registering on Community will be provided through email when you receive confirmation of your ADAPT program participation.

A: At the end of every week, we will do a scan for all program members who got certified withing the week and grant them an allowance to enroll in the Udacity Predictive Analytics for Business Nanodegree. 

 

Note: Ensure your Community account uses the same email as you used to enroll in ADAPT or we might miss you!

 

In that email we distribute we will send you to a specific page on Udacity's site to acknowledge you are a member of the ADAPT program who has passed Core Certification and ask that you create a Udacity account using your program email.

Q: How long do I have to complete the Udacity Nanodegree?
A: The nanodegree will be free for 30 days. The nanodegree is a very full course, but can be completed if dedicating full days to learning predictive analytics.  Udacity has also designated scholarships for the ADAPT program as well. For those who show promise and progress quite far but are unable to complete in 30 days, they will award scholarships to help users complete. There is a limited number of scholarships and they are awarded at the discretion of Udacity.

I am sooo excited about completing this! I already spend hours reading over data and trying to make sense in my head. With COVID-19, I've spent even more time doing this. That's when it hit me! I should go into Data Science! I'm so thankful that you guys also see the need for this during this time. Thank you so much for supporting me in my journey into the world of data!

Thank you CEO Dean for giving this opportunity.

Please I want to know if this ADAPT course is self pace.

Hi @SamuelOtisi, 

 

It is Self-Paced!

Loving the program and enjoying my progress

 

Small issue with the links in "Fundamentals: Week 3, Day 5" section - it looks like they are pointing to the wrong pages?

 

"Working with Strings in Alteryx" link goes to Getting Started Learning path

"Functions" link goes to "SELECT Tool Mastery"

"Expressions Editor" goes to "BROWSE Tool Mastery"

 

I found the correct pages but might be one to update in the future

Is it possible to start the course after a month when i  get access to Udacity nanodegree programme.

Will i be able to get the 1 month access to Nano degree course if i start after 1 month .

@AFG_Team  hi Team!

 

I found some typos/missing links in the content, I have emailed them through to @AYXAcademy 

 

also! Regarding the Udacity Course --- I joined the Adapt program last week and I didn't receive my allowance to enroll in the Udacity Nanodegree yet (extract from the Q&A below).

 

Please can you check to see if I should have received my allowance yet? Thank you very much!
