Overview

Get the skills you need to operate and manage Hadoop clusters. The Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCAH) certification proves that you have this knowledge.

From installation and configuration, to load-balancing and tuning your cluster; this accelerated course covers everything 33% faster than traditional training.

What will you learn?

You'll get the knowledge you need to pass the CCAH exam. Through lectures and hands-on exercises, you'll cover the following topics:

  • The internals of YARN, MapReduce, and Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS)
  • Determining the correct hardware and infrastructure for your cluster
  • Proper cluster configuration and deployment to integrate with the data centre
  • How to load data into the cluster from dynamically-generated files using Flume and from a Relational Database Management System (RDMS) using Sqoop
  • Configuring the FairScheduler to provide service-level agreements for multiple users of a cluster
  • Best practices for preparing and maintaining Apache Hadoop in production
  • Troubleshooting, diagnosing, tuning, and solving Hadoop issues

Note: this course will cover content and practical tests to cover preparation to the exam. Firebrand cannot deliver the exam at our centre. Students will be provided with an exam voucher to take the exam.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CCAH courses
  2. You'll be CCAH certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CCAH trained in record time
  3. Our CCAH course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CCAH 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

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 (Monday) to 22/2/2020 (Saturday))

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
