Online and offline business analyst training program (Entry to high-level program)

In your day to day life you might never meet a full paid business or market analyst but you do make decisions about what to buy and from whom every day. That is the basic level of what a company or product analyst does. Free for charity is offering a program to train you on how to take that skill of deciding based on data what to buy and bring it to charities around the country.  With our training program you will start with sorting through the data and research from our data control specialists to then improve the data with analysis.

This means something as simple as a comparison between two similar products based on your research or something as complex as deciding what types of products meet a specific business need.  Most people with the formal title of Business Analyst have a college degree but many employers still want to see actual project experience. One description for a job posting is “At CSC, Business Analysts are members of an agile development team that delivers IT solutions to support business objectives.  Business Analysts are empowered, decisive, communicative, business-savvy, and highly available to their teams”. Weather you have a college degree or not you can learn the skills that pay an average of 52,898.

Free Training programs FAQ

How do your training programs in business and technology fields help me to get employment in the real world?

Most employers want people with not just training from formal institutions; but also those who have demonstrated success on real world problems. Free for charity provides you the opportunity to work on real problems and be able to show your success to a prospective employer. More than just obtaining a new paper certification you will have a project and its results to show.  Using this competency model we can get you working on projects long before a for-profit company would let you touch it. Companies are low risk and a new hire is a risky. Free for charity understands this risk but because we want to help as many charities as possible and to train as many people as possible in these skills we accept and manage the risk for the organization. Large organizations non profit or for profit don’t like to open the projects they use to support the mission to new hires. Free for charity maintains several entry level projects that are well controlled and low risk for you to start out with. By mastering these projects you show us and other future employers that you are ready for higher level work.

How do we offer free classes and projects when a college or for profit company costs thousands of dollars?

It is simple. We turned the economics on its head.  Instead of making the learner pay to learn we as a nonprofit work from donations of both time and money to provide you the skills you need without the costs you normally have to pay. Most companies want to see results not just certifications. We work only with results and this cuts our costs. As you produce great real world results on your projects free for charity gets new donations and sponsorships funding others to get the same training. By taking the large upfront cost or loans out of the equation we can take on more and more people who want to change their lives by learning new job skills. Since we work online and train online this also includes tapping a group of people who due to the risk of leaving your day job cannot train with us part time as you get time.

What do you require of someone to join your programs?

At the most basic level you have to want to learn and you have to want to help charities. If you are passionate about learning everything else falls into place. When you sign up for any of our programs the slots go to who is the most motivated to learn the skills and produce great results for our supported projects and charities.
