CIT Computer Training Classes for Fall 2000

Registration is now open for the fall term of computer classes, which will begin at the end of September.

With 16 different statistical offerings, this term presents a record-breaking set of options for everyone who uses statistics at NIH. Those just getting started or who need a refresher can take Introduction to Statistics, a 2-day class that offers an overview of the topic. For instruction in popular statistical software, the SAS Programming Fundamentals I and II series or the Introduction to S-PLUS and Programming in S-PLUS sequence offer an in-depth introduction to each type of software. Those who are further along in their use of SAS have many options with advanced classes taught by CIT staff and by the SAS Institute. As a new offering, SAS Institute will teach a number of classes including Using SAS/STAT Procedures to Perform ANOVA and Regression, Categorical Data Analysis Using Logistic Regression in SAS Software, and Introduction to Statistics Using SAS/INSIGHT Software. Finally, in addition to his popular course, Avoiding Pitfalls in Statistical Analysis, Dr. James Malley will be offering a second course. The new course will deal with advanced statistical questions and is intended for anyone who took the first course and wishes to pursue further topics.

Another highlight of the fall program is Helix and Unix training. You can begin with Introduction to the Helix Systems, which gives an overview of CIT's offerings in that system, and then continue to more general Unix courses. The Fundamentals of Unix course acts as a platform-free introduction to Unix for those without previous experience, and then Basic Security for Unix Workstations offers information about keeping the workstation secure. For beginning Unix administrators, Unix Systems Administration Concepts offers an introduction. Dr. Lewis Lipkin will teach a new four-session hands-on class, Using Linux. Finally, those with programming experience in other languages who would like to program in C can begin with Dr. Richard Troxel's newly expanded C language course.

These are just a few of the many classes planned for this fall, so check the web site to get complete information on the fall offerings, and to fill out an application (the paper catalog is no longer produced). As always, there is no tuition for attending CIT courses and seminars. Courses are open to NIH employees and to other users of CIT computing facilities where the coursework pertains to use of the facilities. Students should obtain their supervisor's approval before submitting applications. You may also register by calling 594-6248.
