​AWS Big Data Certification Training Overview

Our comprehensive and engaging two-day AWS Big Data training course will guide delegates through the essentials of AWS Big Data. EMR (Elastic MapReduce), DynamoDB, Athena, Redshift, and Kinesis are just some of the major components that will be explored during this course. As well as this, delegates will acquire an understanding of AWS accounts development, and the art of data processing using means such as Hue and Hive.


Delegates will emerge from this AWS certification training capable of producing Big Data environments and applications, and they will possess a detailed comprehension of best practices for the design and implementation of Big Data. This course will also provide an introduction to Apache Hadoop, the fundamentals of Amazon EMR cluster, and data storage solutions. Similarly, delegates will gain knowledge of cost management, how to use Spark on EMR, and the visualisation of Big Data.


This highly interactive and practical course enables delegates to assess the strength of their gained understanding, as they are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge via labs and exercises. The delegates will also engage in several demonstrations, where they will become familiar with how to interact with AWS elements using interfaces, desktop devices, and command lines.


Big Data is becoming an increasingly desired and intriguing technique, which reflects the advancement towards Big Data solutions. Likewise, Big Data ensures a more secure and profitable approach towards performing Big Data workloads in the cloud. Primarily, this training course will prepare delegates for the AWS Big Data examination.
