Although there aren't any mandatory prerequisites:
for Testers and QA Professionals: you will get a lot more from the course if you have already hold the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) certificate - as this course will not cover the fundamentals and terminology of testing. This practical certification course will take your unterstanding of testing a step further and provide you with a variety of approaches and techniques that are essential for data and analytics testing.
for Business Analysists and BI Consultants: we recommend that you already have experience dealing with (big) data.
