The FDP curriculum provides breadth and depth by requiring candidates to complete online classes as part of the FDP Charter.

In order to receive the FDP Charter, candidates must successfully complete the FDP Exam and complete online classes covering the basics of Python or R programming. The online classes are offered by three approved providers. 

The two (2) classes can be completed before or after the FDP exam**. Depending on the candidate’s background, it is estimated to take 8-10 hours to complete the online classes. No programming background is required to complete the online classes. As of now, the pre-selected online classes offered by the following organizations have been approved by the FDP Institute.

    Programming Languages, R Vs Python: What's the Difference?  
    R and Python are both open-source programming languages with a large community. R is mainly used for statistical analysis while Python provides a more general approach to data science. R and Python are state of the art in terms of programming language oriented towards data science.
    As you decide which online courses you will complete as part of the FDP Charter requirements inquire at your current place of employment or future desired place of employment which system they use.
