1 SAS Certificate Applied Statistics and SAS Programming
2 SAS Certificate Applied Statistics and Advanced SAS Programming Brigham Young University Department of Statistics offers an Applied Statistics and Advanced SAS Programming certificate for undergraduate students. The certificate is earned by taking 13 credits in applied statistics and programming from the Department of Statistics. All the courses taken for the SAS certificate also count toward the department core requirements and electives for our bachelor degrees; students will use both SAS and R throughout the course of the program. The certificate credential is not intended as a diploma or a degree. Requirements To earn the certificate, students must complete the following courses with at least a C, but have an overall B grade point average: STAT SAS Certification 1 STAT SAS Certification 2 STAT Statistical Computing 1 STAT Analysis of Variance STAT Introduction to Regression STAT Statistical Computing 2
3 Stat 124: SAS Certification 1 (1 credit) Book: SAS Certification Prep Guide: Base Programming SAS Publishing This course introduces you to the fundamentals of SAS programming. The goal of Statistics 124 is to show you how to use SAS as a programming environment. 'vve focus primarily on the following topics: 1. Accessing Data 2. Creating Data Structures 3. Managing Data 4. Generating Reports 5. Handling Errors The homework provides simple examples so you can develop practical experiences in writing simple SAS programs. Statistics 124 is designed to get participants to take the SAS Base certification exam. Like any programming class this class requires selfdiscipline and hard work for each student. Be prepared to pass the SAS Certified Base Programmer Exam by demonstrating they can use SAS to: 1. import and export raw data files 2. manipulate and transform data 3. combine SAS data sets 4. create basic detail and summary reports using SAS procedures 5. identify and correct data, syntax and programming logic errors For more information on the SAS Global Certification program and its value in the job market visithttp://support.sas.com/certify/
4 Stat 125: SAS Certification 2 (1 credit) Book: Sharpening Your SAS Skills and SAS Certification Prep Guide: Advanced Programming  SAS Publishing Stat 125 is a one credit hour class taught the second block of Fall and Winter semesters, which was created for the purpose of exposing students to the materials needed to pass the SAS Advanced Programming Certification Exam. **Note that we will not teach you all that is needed to pass the exam. In fact, we will be teaching you very little. Instead, this course should be thought of as an independent study course with resources available to help you in your own study by e.g., outlining what is expected to pass the exam, explaining the types of questions that SAS typically asks on these exams, and answering questions you may have as you work through the SAS Certification Prep Guide alone or with friends. SAS Certified Advanced Programmer Exam A student completing Stat 125: SAS Certification 2 will be prepared to pass the SAS Certified Advanced Programmer Exam by demonstrating they can use SAS to: 1. use advanced DATA step programming statements and efficiency techniques to solve complex problems. 2. write and interpreting SAS SQL code. 3. create and use the SAS MACRO facility. SAS Certified Advanced Programmer certification represents the upper echelon of SAS programmers. Those who earn the advanced programming credential have demonstrated a high level of proficiency in SAS programming expertise and are a much sought after commodity in the global job market.
