Overview

On this accelerated AWS Certified Big Data - Specialty course, you'll learn how to use cloud-based big data solutions, like Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Amazon Redshift and Amazon Kinesis, in just 4 days.

Use best practices to build big data environments for effective security by working with Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Redshift and Amazon Kinesis. On Firebrand’s accelerated course, you’ll also learn how to:

  • Incorporate AWS solutions inside of a big data ecosystem
  • Use visualisation software to show data and queries
  • Control in-memory analytics with Spark and Spark SQL
  • Manage ingesting, transferring and compressing data
  • Process data using Hadoop tools like Hive and Hue

If you’re responsible for designing and implementing big data solutions, or a Data Scientist/Data Analyst who needs to learn more about big data on AWS, this course is ideal for you.

This accelerated course provides training and knowledge equivalent to AWS’s Big Data on AWS course.

Seven reasons why you should sit your Big Data on AWS course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Big Data on AWS certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be Big Data on AWS trained in record time
  2. Our Big Data on AWS course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Big Data on AWS first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more Big Data on AWS. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn Big Data on AWS faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying Big Data on AWS with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,283 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study Big Data on AWS courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.

"Excellent course so much in-depth information passed on. Excellent instructor - course was intensive no doubt about it. But will be back later in 2020 for some more education. "
Adele Reed. (3/8/2020 (Monday) to 6/8/2020 (Thursday))

"I would like to thank the instructors and Firebrand staff who have made my experience here great despite current Covid climates. This has been one of the best courses I have been on and I am grateful for the instructor to be teaching it. The course was very intense - make no mistake, it is not a course that you should just turn up to and assume you will pass - it requires effort, but the instructor helped and explained everything I was struggling with. I have no doubt I wouldnt have the passed the exam without the instructor''s assistance and guidance. Another point here I would like to add, I know remote working is probably the future, but on-site learning cannot be beaten, it lets you stay focused and concentrate - key requirements for this course."
Martin Barrow. (11/5/2020 (Monday) to 17/5/2020 (Sunday))

"Intensive deep knowledge training by a very positive and motivated trainer. The instructor really helped me get my head around AWS, and define solid basements for the certification. Outstanding flexibility & creativity facing the audiance as he needed to face strong network/security guys of the same company, with weak system/db background."
B.B., Orange Cyber Defense. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

"2nd experience with Firebrand, and with no doubts these are one of the highest quality trainings I ever attended. "
V.P., Orange Cyberdefense Belgium. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

"I enjoyed the advanced course in a virtual class room, and learnt a lot from the instructor, not just for the exam, but for real life applications too. Im sure the in-person training would be even better"
Y.G.. (5/6/2020 (Friday) to 7/6/2020 (Sunday))
