This hands-on workshop will show you how to use Minitab® to collect, manipulate, analyze and graph data effectively. Basic statistical techniques are briefly described but the focus is on helping you become comfortable with a powerful statistical package that is ideal for planning, process improvement, and decision making. If you are interested in a thorough coverage of basic statistical analysis techniques, first attend our workshop on Data Analysis and Problem Solving With Excel.

1) On-campus option

The on-campus workshop is offered over a 4-hour period.  Each topic is reinforced through discussion and lab-based exercises using Minitab statistical software.

2) “Blended online” option

The online instructor-led workshop covers the same material as the half-day on-campus program but is available over a 3-day period through our online Learning Management System, providing flexibility to your schedule.  We keep you engaged through online discussions with the instructor and other students. (If you don’t have access to Minitab software, go to to download a free trial copy).

Our online courses and workshops are virtually identical in content to our “live” on-campus courses, but they are conducted online and are flexible to your personal schedule.  Unlike self-paced online training, we keep you actively engaged with our instructors and other program participants.  Instead of in-class discussions, you will participate in online discussions.
