Decision tree methods (TRM)

This cour­se gives a deep insight into the metho­do­lo­gy of decis­i­on trees. Decis­i­on trees are robust, fast and under­stan­da­ble and the­r­e­fo­re popu­lar for data explo­ra­ti­on and fore­cas­ting with lar­ge and hete­ro­ge­neous data sets.


  • Basics of decis­i­on trees: divi­si­on rules, pru­ning, ana­ly­sis
  • CART
  • Ran­dom Forest
  • Boos­ted trees
  • Over­view of other methods: ID3, FACT, QUEST

Our method trai­ning cour­ses are desi­gned to be soft­ware-inde­pen­dent and cross-indus­try. We attach gre­at importance to a lively and inspi­ring atmo­sphe­re in the trai­ning and the­r­e­fo­re pre­sent examp­les from various appli­ca­ti­on are­as; soft­ware may also be used.

The cour­se is open to dis­cus­sion and con­tri­bu­ti­ons from par­ti­ci­pan­ts. Our trai­ners respond to all ques­ti­ons from par­ti­ci­pan­ts and ans­wer them at appro­pria­te points during the cour­se.

Par­ti­ci­pan­ts will recei­ve all trai­ning docu­ments in PDF for­mat after­wards.

  • Online: The­se trai­ning ses­si­ons offer maxi­mum fle­xi­bi­li­ty wit­hout the need to tra­vel. All par­ti­ci­pan­ts work on their own PCs. We recom­mend using two moni­tors for this pur­po­se.
  • Ham­burg: With our trai­ning cen­ter in Ham­burg, we pro­vi­de a com­for­ta­ble place for suc­cessful lear­ning.
  • At your pre­mi­ses: We con­duct the trai­ning cour­ses on your pre­mi­ses for you and your col­le­agues.

We offer all our trai­ning ses­si­ons in both Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guages.
