The second NC3 Data Analytics certification, “Optimizing Energy & Sustainability with Data Analytics,” is a ten hour certification that builds on what students learn in the first cert, “Harnessing the Power of Data.” Combined, they provide a great opportunity to increase career awareness and create the energy needed for consumers as our country plans and prepares for the future.
