RTI offers three SUDAAN courses: one that concentrates on SUDAAN’s descriptive procedures, a second companion course that concentrates on SUDAAN’s modeling procedures, a third course which focuses on SUDAAN's weighting and imputation procedures. The courses include computer labs that are applicable to all supported platforms and are taught by experienced instructors who use SUDAAN to analyze correlated data on a regular basis. Class size is kept small to allow one-on-one interaction with the instructor and fellow classmates.
For additional assistance with SUDAAN, our training team is available for customized training courses at your site. For individual and small-group support, RTI is pleased to continue our SUDAAN and Statistical Consulting program noted below.
