Course description
This course provides in-depth instruction on Association and Social Network Analysis. The first part of this course explains the purpose and process of association analysis and how to create an association matrix. Students will also learn how to build and present a link chart using standard symbols and terms. The second part of this course explains what social network analysis is with focus on types of centrality, network structure, and the application of the Target Centric approach. 

Key concepts covered in this course include:
     • Basic knowledge of link and association analysis
     • Process of social network analysis
     • Visual mapping and mathematical components

Note: Some of the concepts covered in ILA are also covered in NW3C’s 4-day FIAT class; therefore, some of the material in ILA can be duplicative for prior FIAT students.

Students who complete this course and pass the post test are eligible for 1.0 point toward the CECFE and 3CI certifications.

Cancellation
All classes are subject to cancellation up to 45 days before the start of class if the minimum class registration threshold is not met.
