Coursera today launched a three-course specialization that lays the groundwork for certification in SAS analytics skills. The SAS Programming Specialization "takes learners from the basics through what they need to become SAS certified," according to a news announcement. Those who complete the specialization will gain the skills they need to pass the SAS Base Programming Certification exam.

The courses include interactive demos, exercises, hands-on projects and access to a free SAS Software environment. Coursework is designed to provide "foundational knowledge and practical experience for career paths in data science and business analytics by analyzing real-world data sets."

"Analytics is an essential part of the fourth industrial revolution. Our customers are aggressively seeking talent to help them compete in the age of analytics," said Sean O'Brien, vice president of Education at SAS, in a statement. "The broad reach of Coursera will help learners around the world more easily develop the SAS skills they need to get ahead."
