TStat
TStat is a “niche” statistics company providing: i) biostatistics, econometric and statistical training to both the private and public sector; and ii) data analysis and statistical consultancy support to small and medium firms. Over the past 10 years, TStat has evolved to become the market leader in Biostatics, Econometrics and Statistics training in Italy. Today, TStat is an important point of reference for researchers in both the private and public sector, needing to: acquire new analytical skills; study the latest econometrical or statistical developments in their field, or simply refresh their existing analytical “tool-box”. Every year our training portfolio offers academics, biostatisticians, medics, economists, market analysts, researchers and public health sector professionals, a comprehensive array of training possibilities. TStat’s training portfolio can classified into two distinct categories: introductory and advanced courses relating to the use of the statistical software which TStat distributes; introductory, intermediate and advanced “state of the art” courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, econometrics, financial analysis and statistics.

TStat is also the Italian distributor for the world’s leading econometric and statistic software. This dual role places us in the somewhat unique position of being able to offer integrated statistical support to all of our clients.

MISSION
Data today, is an important source of information. Not only for people working in research and development, but also in marketing, product development, and operational research. Effective data analysis however, often tends to be a somewhat problematic issue for both companies and institutions. At TStat, we strive to ensure that our clients get the most out of their data. Our team of in-house experts work closely together to ensure clients are provided with the appropriate advice and guidance, ranging from software selection, to the provision of tailored, high quality econometric and statistical training courses, to effective data analysis and statistical consultancy.

Good statistical consultancy requires a strong technical background in statistics, excellent communication skills, together with business acumen. TStat’s consultancy group excels in all three of these areas, having obtained extensive experience in applying economic and statistical analysis to a wide range of research, commercial and industrial issues. Our in-house expertise in both training and consultancy, is complemented further, via an extensive network of leading academics and business analysts, many of whom have significant public and private sector experience.

TRAINING
Over the past 10 years, TStat has evolved to become the market leader in Biostatical, Econometric and Statistical training in Italy. Today, TStat is an important point of reference for researchers in both the private and public sector, needing to: acquire new analytical skills; study the latest econometrical or statistical developments in their field, or simply refresh their existing analytical “tool-box”. Each year our training portfolio offers academics, biostatisticians, medics, economists, market analysts, researchers and public health sector professionals, a comprehensive array of training possibilities

TStat’s training portfolio can be classified into three distinct categories introductory and advanced courses relating to the use of one of the statistical software which we distribute; introductory/intermediate courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, econometrics, financial analysis and statistics; and advanced “state of the art” courses in each of the aforementioned fields. Each course is composed of both a theoretical component in which the techniques and underlying principles are explained, and an applied (hands-on) segment during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses current research issues indicating potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques. The intuition behind the choice and implementation of a specific technique is of the utmost importance. In this manner, course leaders are able to bridge the “often difficult” gap between abstract theoretical methodologies, and the practical issues one encounters when dealing with real data.

OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPY
What differentiates TStat’s training program? TStat’s courses are characterized by their theoretical and applied structure. Each course, or for that matter individual session, has both a theoretical component (in which the techniques and underlying principles behind them are explained), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses current research issues, highlighting potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques. The intuition behind the choice and implementation of a specific technique is of the utmost importance. In this manner, course leaders are able to bridge the “often difficult” gap between abstract theoretical methodologies, and the practical issues one encounters when dealing with real data. At the end of the course, participants are expected to be able to autonomously implement the theories and methodologies discussed in the course. Should problems arise once delegates return to their workplace, post-training support is however offered. Attendees are also provided with a short term course license for the software used during the training program to ensure continuity with respect to access to software upon their return to the workplace.

ONE-SITE TRAINING
Over recent years we have experienced a significant increase in demand for our on-site training courses. In-house training offers clients the opportunity to tailor course programs to their own needs and the ability to schedule courses to suit individual timetables. Organizing courses at your company headquarters also minimizes both travelling costs and times for participants. In addition to the public attendance courses included in Frankfurt training calendar, TStat provides in-house training in the following fields; biostatistics, cluster analysis; epidemiology, forecasting, multilevel modeling; multivariate data analysis, analysis of spatial data, survey data; survival analysis, time series analysis. Should the individual course programs included in our public training portfolio not suit your requirements, consider tailoring the course to your own particular needs. Our in-house training experts have extensive experience in both teaching and course development, whatever your training requirements, we can develop a training package to meet your individual specifications. Further information regarding in-house econometric and statistical training are published at www.tstat.eu/training/onsite Alternatively contact one our training consultants in either Germany or Italy.
