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 course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 4 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

Adam Sanderson, Keyzo. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 24/3/2021 (Wednesday))

"I had failed the AWS Solution Architect Associate exam multiple times before coming to Firebrand Training. The OIL course was great and the Instructor was very clear and helpful. I took the exam again straight after finishing the course and PASSED! I was a lot more confident in the exam because I now understood all of the concepts being presented in the questions."
Sam Phillips, Tecflair. (1/3/2021 (Monday) to 4/3/2021 (Thursday))

"The online training experience worked well, and I felt that I received the same level of training that I would have if I was in the classroom.. although its always useful to be there in person and have the social element, the convenience compensated for that. The main thing for me was the quality of the delivery was still top notch. Thanks very much!"
