Base SAS includes a programming language that manages data, and includes procedures for data analysis, reporting, and managing SAS files. SAS also includes a windowing environment for text editing and file management. This course addresses how to write SAS programs and provides a starting point to learning SAS programming for data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Participants should be able to understand file structures and system commands on their operating systems and be able to access data files on their operating systems. No prior SAS experience is needed. This introductory course is three full days and is limited to the first fifteen registrants.
Registrants must attend a SAS class facilitated through the NIH Library for at least half of the class sessions, or they must cancel their registration (or alert Joelle Mornini at Joelle.Mornini@nih.gov) if they cannot attend at least 2 business days prior to the start of the class. If a registrant misses more than half of SAS class sessions and fails to cancel their registration or provide notice of cancellation at least 48 hours in advance, they will be unable to register for SAS classes facilitated through the NIH Library for 12 months.
