Time-Series Forecasting Using the Prophet Algorithm

Predicting Trends and Patterns with Advanced Forecasting Techniques


Hours Course


Our “Time Series Forecasting with Prophet” course is designed for beginners who want to learn how to analyze and predict time series data in a simple, easy-to-understand way. This course covers two main areas: basic Python for data analysis and the basics of time series forecasting using the Prophet algorithm. We start from the ground up, teaching you the essentials of Python programming and how to manage data using Pandas. You’ll learn about time series data and how to make predictions with Prophet, all explained in a beginner-friendly manner. Our experienced instructors and teaching assistants provide one-on-one tutoring to ensure you understand each concept. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to confidently apply your new forecasting skills to real-world data, making informed decisions with ease.
