Unstructured Data Analytic Training

for Customer Service Professionals


CSLD Data Boot Camp 101

This training course provides customer service professionals with hands-on experience working with unstructured data to develop text mining and data-analytic skills. Ideal for individuals and managers responsible for customer service operations, metrics and reporting, this course provides insight and real world examples using unstructured data mining techniques to uncover deep insight into customer service data.

The CSLD Data Boot Camp is an introductory course that covers an overview of text mining including preprocessing functions, data enrichment, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and several data clustering and classification techniques.  Unique to other data mining courses, this training is very specific to a company's Customer Service function with practical exercises for mining customer feedback, knowledge content, system/error logs and case/incident management data.  The course also covers an introduction to data analytic programs including R, Python, and Knime.

While programming experience is not required, participants should have a good understanding of data structures, data analysis, and customer service operational metrics.
