Overview

On this accelerated IBM Certified Data Engineer - Big Data course, you’ll learn how to develop, maintain, test and evaluate big data solutions and visual tools for analysis within your business. You’ll work with the data architect and developer to convert the architect’s big data vision and blueprint into reality.

In just 2 days, you’ll build knowledge on how to apply technologies to solve big data problems and to build large-scale data processing systems for the enterprise. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Address the information governance and security challenges associated with the data
  • Provide input on the needed hardware and software to the architects
  • Import streaming data into Hadoop using InfoSphere Streams and create Big SQL table definitions

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the IBM Certified Data Engineer - Big Data exam, and achieve your certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.

  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

"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."
