Level 2 Certification

After completing the Multiparadigm Data Science (MPDS) course videos, quizzes and exercises, or after you've completed the Wolfram Data Science Boot Camp, you're ready to consider Level 2 certification. Course completion and Level 1 certification are not required in order to apply for Multiparadigm Data Science Level 2 certification, but they are strongly recommended. Level 2 certification requires submitting an independent project that demonstrates expertise in applying the MPDS approach to solving a complex problem. Submissions are assessed according to a grading rubric.

Recommended Level 2 Certification Process

  • Begin by studying the materials available in the Multiparadigm Data Science interactive course or by signing up for the Wolfram Data Science Boot Camp.
  • For the course, watch all 21 videos and pass the four quizzes in order to earn your certificate of course completion. The Track My Progress section in the course helps you to chart your progress.
  • For the boot camp, attend all immersive online sessions and participate in discussions, activities and hands-on explorations.
  • Complete required exercises for Level 1 certification.
  • Identify the dataset you want to work with from the Wolfram Data Repository or use your own data.
  • Create your independent project notebook.
  • Consult the grading rubric to ensure your project meets certification standards.
  • Pay the $395 certification fee and submit your project notebook. (Education customers pay $195; students pay $95.)
    This certification fee is included with boot camp full registration.

Submitting Your Project

Once your project notebook is complete, pay the certification fee and follow instructions to upload your file(s). All projects are scored according to the grading rubric. A project score of 75 or greater will earn Level 2 certification in Multiparadigm Data Science. You will be notified about your certification status within three weeks of your submission. Successful applicants will receive a certificate suitable for printing, and every applicant receives project feedback that includes an explanation of their score. Applicants who receive scores under 75 may work to improve their projects and can apply again for Level 2 certification by submitting revised projects with the certification fee.
