Which SAS course should I take?

[ Edited ]



I'm not sure if I'm in the right category to ask this question. I'm totally new in SAS and I'm interested in learning SAS programming and SAS Data Mining. I've watched SAS programming 1: Essentials course that is free on SAS website. 


There are many courses on SAS website to choose. Regarding to my level in SAS, Could you tell me which course is proper for me to take (both free and non-free courses)?

I would suggest spending some time using SAS for some specific projects if you have some. That will give you an opportunity to use and reinforce what you learned in Essentials. You would then find some of the things that you need to know or have difficulties accomplishing.


Likely the second programming would be helpful to have more tools for general data manipulation.

Thank you Ballardw for your reply. But could you please explain more about 'Second programming'?

@Riana most likely they mean SAS Programming 2 which can be found here: https://support.sas.com/edu/schedules.html?ctry=us&id=2618
