C3 AI offers official C3.ai Academy online courses. A C3 AI developer portal login is required to sign up for these courses. Each course is a self-paced series of videos, exercises, and quizzes intended to be completed in a week (40 hours). When signed up, you will be given access to a C3 AI-hosted training environment for one week and to C3 AI instructors daily office hours each morning. You can re-sign up for a course in a subsequent week if you have not completed it.
The C3 AI Data Science course is likely the most relevant to your DTI-sponsored research activities, however it is meant to be taken after completing the C3 AI Cornerstone.
Accessing C3.ai Academy
To access available coursework, navigate to this page. This will require you to create a Litmos account. Once your account is created, navigate to the link, and you should land at the learning dashboard:
C3 AI training curriculum is broken up into Learning Paths. Each contains a series of modules broken into sections containing instructional videos, quizzes to test your understanding, and finally tests through which C3 AI evaluates completion of their official courses.
Anybody with a Litmos account can view the training material. Simply navigate to the Learning Path you are interested in, click on its icon and you will go to that Learning Path's page. For example, here's what the C3 AI Data Science Learning Path looks like:
The upper section describes this course, and below are the actual course materials.
Above the course sections is the link Additional References. Clicking that brings up links to additional materials for the course. Most importantly, a zip file at the top under 'Course Resources'. This zip file contains all materials needed for the course including any packages, Jupyter notebooks, exercises, or data sets.
Registering for a Course
If you have access to a C3 Cluster, you don't technically have to sign up for any course. Signing up for a course only provides access to a tag on the official C3 AI training cluster. All other components of the course are available on the learning path page, including information to attend the (usually) daily office hours.
If you want to sign up for a C3.ai Academy course navigate to the Litmos learning dashboard and select Content Library:
Select the course you want to enroll in and click 'Start this course'.
Typically, C3 AI requires learners to pass a HackerRank test to determine readiness to be onboarded to the C3 AI platform. This is waived for DTI members. Please email email@example.com if you are being asked to complete this test.
