AlignAI and The University of Cincinnati Team Up to Offer a ML OPS Course

September 16, 2022

Learn how to free-up Data Science time for more model building and less model support.

This course is for teams looking to scale their Data Science functions  while increasing the number and performance of models in production.  MLOps is the best practices and standards to deploy, monitor, and  improve A.I. models. Students learn an overview of MLOps and how to  apply best practices for your team.

This course does not require prerequisite knowledge.

4 online sessions with live instructors

This Course Addresses:

  • Scaling Data Science - How do you shift data science teams to building more models?
  • Increasing R.O.I. - How do you deploy more models in production to increase R.O.I. and adoption?
  • Performance - How do teams quantify and improve model performance?

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand  and utilize the terminology, best practices, and critical concepts for  deploying, monitoring, and governing A.I. models.
  • Automate the training, deployment, and monitoring of a model.
  • Measure and monitor the performance of A.I. models.
  • Govern A.I. models to increase R.O.I. and trust.

Learning Path:

Learn the terminology and concepts of enterprise MLOps, including process, roles, and best practices.

A.I. Architecture
Learn to design, architect, and deploy deep learning applications.

A.I. Pipelines
Build automated model pipelines for continuous training, integration, and deployment.

A.I. Monitoring
Measure, monitor, and improve model performance to maximize impact and R.O.I. throughout the model’s life cycle.


This class will be delivered on-line in four, 3.5-hour sessions over two weeks through Zoom with a live instructor.  Dates and times for this class are:

  • Tuesday Sept 20- 12:45 PM - 4:15PM
  • Thursday Sept 22 - 12:45 PM - 4:15PM
  • Tuesday Sept 27- 12:45 PM - 4:15PM
  • Thursday Sept 29 - 12:45 PM - 4:15PM

A good internet connection and dual screens are recommended to maximize the learning experience.  Links to the Zoom Training and class materials will be sent to registered attendees approximately 3-5 days before the class.

Certificate of Completion

A Certificate of Completion is provided with this course showing number of contact hours (instruction), and field of study as "Information Technology" for continuing education purposes. This course provides 12 contact hours and is equivalent to 1.2 CEU's.

The term CEU is not a trademarked term; therefore, any educational institution may use it to describe their courses. Professions and industries usually regulate their approved continuing education within their bylaws and not one institute or accrediting body has become a standard to accept in this regard. Professionals should always consult their Association or regulating body prior to embarking on continuing education and not assume a CEU will be accepted as part of their professional development.
