Two Days Workshop on Structural Equation Modeling (SEM/AMOS) Level 1
Date : 25 -26 January 2019 (Friday - Saturday)
TIme : 8.30am - 5.30pm
Venue: MPWS Training Centre, 63-1, Jalan Kajang Impian 1/11, Taman Kajang Impian, Seksyen 7, 43650 Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor
Medium: Bahasa English
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, & 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 correlation 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?
» Soft copy Note from Speaker
» Soft copy Certificate
» Meal & Refreshments
