What is Data Analytics
Data Analytics is the science of being able to tell an accurate story from a set of data. It involves the use of powerful tech systems to organise, format, and model data in order to glean useful information.
The increasing prevalence of digitisation within society has meant that the demand for capable Data Analysts has increased. We are committed to giving you the skills and support needed to build a career.

Demand of the Future
The demand for data scientists is expected to grow as the Australian economy matures. Within the next 15 years Data Analysts are expected to be one of the areas of greatest new jobs growth across a range of sectors.
This course covers a variety of skills and disciplines relating to Cloud Architecture
Skills Gap Leads to Opportunity
Cloud computing is currently the world’s number one tech investment area, but there is a critical skills shortage for professionals with the required cloud skills.
The Data Analytics and Cloud Training (DAACT) Bootcamp provides an introduction to practical data analytics and will prepare individuals for a career in various sectors using a variety of applications to analyse and present data.
The training and practical experience within this program will develop a range of technical and digital skills that would be highly relevant for the following roles:
- Junior Data Analyst
- Junior Business Analyst
- Junior Data Engineer
- Junior Data Scientist

This program is part of the Digital Skills Cadetship Trial, an Australian Government initiative aimed at working with the tech industry to address its emerging digital skills needs.
As part of the Trial learners will undertake formal training along with a paid 12-week cadetship with some of Goanna’s Industry Partners. These cadetships will not only provide valuable on-the-job experience but may lead to employment opportunities at the end of the program.
This Bootcamp will guide you through the journey of learning the skills required to become a Data Analyst. Goanna will provide an Industry-led program with content covering Excel, SQL, Python, PowerBI and Azure Fundamentals.
You will also be exposed to real industry projects and extended career support to build on your job readiness skills.
By the end of the program, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to perform these functions in the workplace:
- Use fundamental programming language concepts
- Carry out basic to intermediate level MS Excel Functions using Formulas, pivot tables
- Create simple visualisations using visualisation tools to present Data
The specialisation in cloud architecture has been designed to supplement students existing and acquired technical knowledge throughout the course.
Students will gain the ability to design, implement and improve cloud infrastructure using the AWS cloud platform as well as gain an understanding in how to apply these concepts in the Microsoft Azure platform.
Along the way, you will also have the opportunity to earn industry-respected Microsoft certifications designed to give you the credentials to build a career.
