About Us

DSA Labs is a unit of i-POINT focussed on developing talent in Data Science and Analytics. We have developed a rich portfolio of short-term courses in Data Science and Analytics aimed at creating industry ready professionals in BI Reporting, Analytics and Decision roles.

Why DSA Labs?

Since we started i-POINT in 2008, we have a track record of training over 15,000 plus students in professional skills needed by industry and our alumni have been working for Tier-1 global companies in India and abroad.

We created DSA Labs because we saw an opportunity to create industry ready talent in the field of data science and analytics through immersive learning experience at an affordable cost unlike many who offer passive learning experience through video lectures for comparable costs.


Our proven hands-on minds-on training approach is guaranteed# to deliver best returns on your investment. The following are key characteristics of every course/program at DSA Labs

  • Instructor Led Training (ILT) in small batches for individual attention
  • Course curriculum aligned to industry skill needs for various job roles

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1.Do I need to have a degree in Maths, Statistics or Science to learn Analytics?
No. What you need is an affinity to understanding of numbers and we will take care of the rest. Most entry level jobs in business analytics look for good analytical skills and ability to communicate with data. While a degree in Maths and Statistics would be advantageous, but not a must as our certification courses include requisite foundation concepts needed. Some employers may ask for specific degrees, but then there are a whole lot who look for data science and analytics skills along with any degree.
Q2.Do I need to know programming in R or Python to take up courses in Data Science?
Prior knowledge of R or Python will be advantageous of our certificate course in Data Analytics and Machine learning. It is not essential for our beginner level course in analysis and visualization. However, programming is part of the course as well. So, if you have not done programming In R or Python, we will support you to acquire the skill needed for data science work. You can also consider our foundation courses in R and Python programming to develop your depth in programming at a nominal price.
Q3.What kind of career assistance does DSA Labs offer?
We will support every student in tailoring resumes and preparing for interviews. We will also provide leads and connects to employment opportunities in the data science and analytics field through our network. While there are no guaranteed placements, our commitment and efforts are 100% to help deserving students to get jobs in the industry.

Q4.Are the courses online or offline?

There are separate online live classroom training as well as regular face to face training batches.
