Get the skills you need to write, maintain, and optimise Apache Hadoop on this accelerated Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop (CCDH) course. Learn how create robust data processing applications using Apache Hadoop.

This course is 33% faster than traditional training. You’ll be prepared for the real world challenges faced by Hadoop developers and study the following topics:

  • The internals of MapReduce, Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and how to write MapReduce code
  • Best practices for Hadoop development, debugging, and implementation of workflows and common algorithms
  • How to leverage Hive, Pig, Sqoop, Flume, Oozie, and other Hadoop ecosystem projects
  • Creating custom components such as WritableComparables and InputFormats to manage complex data types Writing and executing joins to link data sets in MapReduce
  • Advanced Hadoop API topics required for real-world data analysis

Seven reasons why you should sit your CCDH course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be CCDH certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CCDH trained in record time
  2. Our CCDH course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CCDH 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 CCDH. 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 CCDH 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 CCDH 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 113,703 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study CCDH 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.
