Expert Training in Mplus.
From Anywhere, Any Time.

In this self-paced online workshop, Dr. Christian Geiser provides in-depth tutorials on analyzing and interpreting a variety of latent class models in Mplus. With crystal clear hands-on lessons, he'll take you through each step of performing mixture analyses, from writing syntax to interpreting output, all the way to writing up the results for publications. Here's what's included in the course:

  • Classical latent class analysis with categorial indicators

  • Analysis of covariates in mixture models

  • Multigroup LCA and measurement equivalence testing

  • Introduction to latent profile analysis, latent transition analysis, and growth mixture modeling

  • I don't have access to Mplus. Can I still benefit from this course?

    Absolutely. You can engage in the full curriculum using only the demo version of Mplus, which is FREE. Dr. Geiser will provide instructions about getting the demo installed on your computer.

  • What level of statistical training is required for the course?

    This course is for learners with a basic understanding of categorical data analysis. A working understanding of the Mplus software is helpful, but not required. Need a beginner-focused course? Mplus from Scratch gives you everything you need to be ready for this workshop.

  • There is no way that I will be able to set aside the four days required to take this course. Is the timing flexible?

    We understand completely! The timing is entirely up to you. Once you enroll and the course has launched, you will have unlimited access to the content. You are free to pause and return to your lessons as needed.

  • Will you give me feedback on my analyses?

    Unfortunately, personal feedback is not possible given the volume of researchers we serve. We are certain that Dr. Geiser's thorough approach to guiding you through every step of using Mplus, along with the helpful handouts and guides included in the course, will enable you to successfully perform multilevel modeling techniques with your own data. Note that we are always happy to help you navigate any technical issues related to the course itself.

How the Course Works

Follow these steps to get started:

  • 1. Enroll in the Course

    You will receive a payment receipt by email from QuantFish and instructions for accessing your Student Dashboard. Latent Class Analysis is available to start immediately.

  • 2. Start Learning

    Begin the course when the time is right for you. Visit your student dashboard, click on the course, and watch Dr. Geiser's introductory video to get started. Subsequent lessons are shown to you in sequential order, along with the PDF resources. Plan on each day (module) to take about three hours, plus practice time. At the completion of the course, we will provide a certificate of completion that you can use for your own professional needs.

  • 3. Share Your Success!

    The best part of our work here at QuantFish is seeing our trainees implement their newfound analytic skills in their own research. We LOVE hearing about published papers and successful defenses. Find us on Facebook or shoot us an email so we can celebrate with you!
