CNX-CAIP: Certified Artificial Intelligence Practitioner

In this course, you will develop AI solutions for business problems! Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have become essential parts of the toolset for many organizations. When used effectively, these tools provide actionable insights that drive critical decisions and enable organizations to create exciting, new, and innovative products and services. This course shows you how to apply various approaches and algorithms to solve business problems through AI and ML, all while following a methodical workflow for developing data-driven solutions.

The skills covered in this course converge on four areas:

  • Software development
  • IT operations
  • Applied math and statistics
  • Business analysis.


Target students for this course should be looking to build upon their knowledge of the data science process so that they can apply AI systems, particularly machine learning models, to business problems.

The target student is likely a data science practitioner, software developer, or business analyst looking to expand their knowledge of machine learning algorithms and how they can help create intelligent decisionmaking products that bring value to the business. 

A typical student in this course should have several years of experience with computing technology, including some aptitude in computer programming.

This course is also designed to assist students in preparing for the CertNexus® Certified Artificial Intelligence Practitioner certification (exam AIP-210).


To ensure your success in this course, you should be familiar with the concepts that are foundational to data science, including:

  • The overall data science and machine learning process from end to end:
    • formulating the problem;
    • collecting and preparing data;
    • analyzing data; 
    • engineering and preprocessing data;
    • training, tuning, and evaluating a model;
    • finalizing a model
  • Statistical concepts such as sampling, hypothesis testing, probability distribution, randomness, etc.
  • Summary statistics such as mean, median, mode, interquartile range (IQR), standard deviation, skewness, etc.
  • Graphs, plots, charts, and other methods of visual data analysis.

You must also be comfortable writing code in the Python programming language, including the use of fundamental Python data science libraries like NumPy and pandas.
