Become a Certified Big Data Professional

Demonstrate Your Expertise with the Most Sought-After Technical Skills

Big Data success requires professionals who can prove their mastery with the tools and techniques of the Hadoop stack. However, experts predict a major shortage of advanced analytics skills over the next few years. At Cloudera, we’re drawing on our industry leadership and early corpus of real-world experience to address the Big Data talent gap.

 Beyond the technical merits of its training courses, Cloudera's certification validated Hadoop and my experience in the eyes of management. It’s often difficult to get buy-in when proposing new technology, and Cloudera’s efforts are very helpful in that regard.
