Cloudera Certified Professional: Data Scientist (CCP:DS)

Gain Recognition as a Leader in Big Data

CCP: Data Scientists have demonstrated their skills in working with Big Data at an elite level. Candidates must prove their abilities on a live cluster with real data sets.

 I'm pumped to earn the CCP: Data Scientist credential! It holds true weight in the market because it replicates a real, sufficiently difficult Big Data scenario I would see on the job and requires a professional-level approach to solving problems. The exam captured all the relevant elements of data science and machine learning, and the Challenge made the experience completely non-trivial.
