Overview

On this accelerated Databricks Certified Professional Data Scientist course, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge of the basics of machine learning, including the steps in the machine learning lifecycle and the machine learning model management.

In just 2 days, you’ll also build knowledge on the ML algorithms and techniques, including:

  • Linear regression
  • Logistic regression
  • Regularisation
  • Decision trees
  • Tree-based ensembles
  • Basic clustering algorithms
  • Matrix factorisation techniques

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the Databricks Certified Professional Data Scientist exam and achieve your certification.

Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. 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
  6. You’ll learn 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
  7. You’ll be studying 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 106662 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"Great training given by the tutor. Clear in his explanations and assisting the attendees where needed. Big thumbs up!"

"I re-attended the course online after having attended the classroom based program initially. Enjoyed the session, although very content based, the tutor was good at covering all topics and had the chance to go over it again as revision. Would definitely attend future courses with Firebrand and select the same instructor. Very knowledgeable and thorough with his explanation. Made us think differently throughout the course."
Mohan Simkhada, EOL IT Services. (18/6/2021 (Friday) to 20/6/2021 (Sunday))

"Facilities at training Center are exceptional. We don’t need to worry about anything and can fully concentrate on learning."
