Analytics Vidhya Apprentice Programme

So, you read about the awesome programme, we have launched!

If you need more details on the programme, you can read them here. We at Analytics Vidhya, understand, what you need to do, in order to accelerate your career in Analytics and this programme aims to achieve exactly that. AV Apprentice is a unique programme, where you will get recognized for your knowledge.

The proposition:

We will extend our team to include a small batch of professional people and mentor them to achieve great heights in their analytics career. For 6 months from the start of the programme, these people work alongside team Analytics Vidhya and gain practical knowledge about the subject. The work includes (but is not restricted to) blogging, Interaction with people on social platforms, active participation on Analytics Vidhya forums, participation in data science competitions ad much more.

What do I need to pay for this awesome opportunity?

Well…nothing financially. You need to put in a lot of efforts, to go through this rigorous program. We will get the content and any financial rewards that come in from the work we do together.

However, in order to make sure that we only get serious candidates for the programme, we have introduced a nominal deposit, which is INR 6000/- (~$100). The entire amount would be refunded to you, the day you pass out of the programme. In case you don’t finish the programme, this deposit would be treated as a compensation for our efforts (and hence will not be refunded).

You will need to clear a tough, multi-stage selection process. Following that, there will be a 6 month rigorous programme.

P.S. – You only get the certificate post completion of programme. There are no marks for participating.

Stage 1 applications:

The applications for first batch of the programme are now closed. Thanks everyone for the tremendous response. We will get back to you shortly.
