Description

If programming and research assistants were taught SAS essentials, job efficiency could be maximized with the ability to use SAS as a tool to do their own preparatory work for assigned tasks. This paper summarizes a supplemental training program which teaches basic SAS programming skills to enable support staff to be more independent.

The purpose of this seminar is not only to teach how to do things, but also to provide a toolkit of essentials for new and infrequent users. Spending time with your employees while they explore SAS is the most economical way to teach basic users the skills they need to complete daily tasks. The ability to navigate various windows allows your novice user to be knowledgeable about their data. As new data sets are created they can be checked and errors detected within reasonable time frames.
