Outline / Features of SEM AMOS

AMOS (Analysis of Moments Structures) software enables
researchers to analyze the inter-relationships among constructs having multiple indicators in a model. Using AMOS graphic, the analysis is executed effectively, accurately, and efficiently. More importantly, the inter-relationships in a model are estimated simultaneously.

Expected Outcomes (Benefits from the workshop)

The workshop will expose participants with the application of Structural Equation Modeling or SEM, the Second Generation Statistical Method. SEM is widely used by researchers to analyze the inter-relationships among constructs in a model. Upon understanding the concept of SEM, the participants will enjoy the hands-on guides on how to execute SEM using AMOS software, and also how to interpret the results. This AMOS Workshop would enable participants to analyze their measurement model and structural model, as well as for the following analysis:

» Analyzing the causal effects
» Analyzing the correlational effects
» Analyzing the Mediating/Intervening effects
» Analyzing the Moderating effects
Advantages this workshop compared to others
Have the speaker which is the expert in this field (SEM/AMOS) since 2004
Held in the small group, not more than 50 people
Very suitable for the beginner and the intermediate researchers in exploring SEM/AMOS
Getting the relationship with the speaker for the future time
In two day’s workshop, really exposed you step by step and hands-on guides on how to execute SEM using AMOS software
The Workshop Consists of Two Levels
> Level 1 for Beginners and Intermediate (2 days)
> Level 2 for Intermediate and Advanced (2 days)
Who should join this workshop?
» Academicians
» Researchers
» Scholars
» Consultants
» Postgraduate students
» Those who require SEM for their data analysis
Will get it?
» Softcopy Note from Speaker
» Softcopy Certificate
» Meal & Refreshments

“Saya dapati“Dr. Z”adalahseorang yang pakar dalam SEM/AMOS. Beliau juga tidak segan memberitahu student jika berlaku sebarang kesilapan”
“Understandable and earn a lot in the workshop”
“Pengetahuan bertambah dan penyelesaian masalah bertambah baik dalam analisis SEM. TerimaKasih”
“This is an effective training program for novices who are new or less experience in SEM by using AMOS. Love the way how Dr.Zai conduct the class and his patience in teaching”
