Applied Machine Learning in Supply Chain Professional Certificate

Date:   Mar 22, 2023 - Jun 03, 2023
Time:   6:00 PM (MDT)

Online Participating Provinces


The course is carefully scheduled in modules over a 3-month period, in which participants will grow from ML novice to a confident ML practitioner. The purpose overall is to deliver value to your work and your organization.

Module 1: Fundamentals of Machine Learning

This module cuts through the jargon such that key foundational machine learning concepts are understood and form the basis for going deeper in the theory and more importantly practice. Participants start learning by using simple data.

Module 2: Deep Dive into Data Engineering

Real-life is not as simple. This module takes the participants deeper into machine learning so that they become comfortable in using unclean data and various types of machine learning algorithms

Module 3: Deep Learning Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision

This module explores neural networks which make up the backbone of deep learning algorithms. Participants also learn to use text data from documents and emails to model

Module 4: Business Project

Supported by an expert instructor, the participant now applies the learnings on a real business project in their own job. This ensures that the skills effectively result in on-the-job performance. The participant and their workplace see results!


By attending this workshop, participants will:

  • Use machine learning to inform supply chain decision making
  • Work with the concept of a data model, to evaluate it, and explain why models fail.
  • Apply algorithm model building knowledge to build forecasting and prediction models. 
  • Classify models - as supervised, unsupervised, or reinforced.
  • Apply data wrangling and pre-processing techniques
  • Classify performance models as regression or classification.
  • Publish and deploy models onto a commercial Machine Learning platform
  • Configure, implement and report on a real use case for your organization.
