You can do Hadoop too, with our Hadoop 2 Courseware

We’re delighted to announce that our Hadoop 2.0 Courseware is available now!

According to a 2013 Education Services Bench Mark Study conducted by The Technology Services Industry Association, “the lag time between product and Instructor Lead Content release is 68 business days, or more than three months” but not at Hortonworks!  All of our Developer Courses and Certifications are now based on Apache Hadoop 2.0 and available at the same time as the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0.

Hadoop 2.0 Training from the only company focused solely on Hadoop

Hortonworks is the only place where you can find training that has been co-created with the people who are setting the standards for Hadoop 2.0. Working along side a team of Hadoop architects, committers and practitioners with deep technical and practical knowledge enables us to collect that knowledge and make it available to you as soon as the product is delivered. This collective knowledge is woven in to every aspect of our live virtual classes, in person classes, hands-on labs and certification exams and directly passed on to you.

You deserve to learn about Hadoop from the only company that’s completely dedicated to Hadoop, the only company that focuses on open innovation and collaboration. Enabling our customers, partners and employees is our number one goal. We are passionate about Hadoop and it shows in their delivery. We routinely receive unsolicited feedback from our students that tell us our classes are valuable:

“This is one of the best trainings I have ever attended”

The instructor is exceptional, I am impressed with his passion and time management.”

Our instructors are active in the communities – the Hadoop Community, the Database Community and various Infrastructure communities. This community engagement that our instructors have allows them to understand complementary technologies to allow them to provide you insight on the interaction between Hadoop and it’s role in the Modern Data Architecture in your data center.

The same partners (System Integrators, OEMs, and ISVs) that you rely on to get you up and running on Hadoop, rely on us to deepen their Hadoop knowledge. Partners like Microsoft, Rackspace, SAS, SAP and Teradata work hand in hand with us to build the best enablement plans for their customers and employees alike. Already, we have trained hundreds of customers and partners on Hadoop 2.0, reaching the audiences both virtually and in person with our team of talented instructors.

Many Live Online Options

We know that travel can be difficult and to help with that, we’ve introduced “Live Online” classes. You get the same expert instructor, delivering our courseware, via a online technologies with small student to teacher ratio.  Check out our class schedule to find a class that fits your travel budget …or not.

Hadoop 2.0 Certifications Ready Now!

Not only are our Developer Courses based on Hadoop 2.0, Hortonworks is the only vendor to provide Certification exams based on Hadoop 2.0. Effective immediately, you can become a Hortonworks Certified Apache Hadoop Developer 2.0 or a Hortonworks Certified Apache Hadoop Java Developer 2.0.  The Hortonworks Certified Apache Hadoop Administrator exam will be available in mid-Q4,2013. These exams are all new and based on Hadoop 2.0. If you’ve taken either the Developing Apache Hadoop 2.0 Solutions for Data Analysts or the Developing Apache Hadoop Applications in Java then you’re ready for the exam. If you’ve taken an earlier version of our Developing Solutions course, or have already achieved Hortonworks Certified Developer status, we’ll be publishing a study guide for you in the next several weeks to help you prepare to take the new exam.

Courses Renamed

As part of our launch of the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0, we’ve renamed our courses to better reflect the platform that you’ll be learning on. Here’s what’s changed:

We’re really excited to have these courses and certifications ready for you on the same week as the general availability of the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0. We look forward to helping you do Hadoop, too!

Hi, do you have any further info about the online training class option like system requirements, how the class is structured, can screen sharing with the instructor happen to help with questions on the labs, ect…?

Sai says:

It is very sad to post on your wall that i had been tring to contact someone at Hortonworks to reschedule my certification exam which i could not get pass marks during first attempt and unfortunately no one answers the call and it goes to voicemail and no one responds to the email

Is there anyone who can let me know if Hortonworks Certification Process is still functional or if you have shut that down .
