Data Mining with Weka Training Course


14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)


  • Basic knowledge of data mining process and techniques


  • Data Analysts
  • Data Scientists


Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis (Weka) is an open-source data mining visualization software. It provides a collection of machine learning algorithms for data preparation, classification, clustering, and other data mining activities.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at beginner to intermediate-level data analysts and data scientists who wish to use Weka to perform data mining tasks.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure Weka.
  • Understand the Weka environment and workbench.
  • Perform data mining tasks using Weka.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
