Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

Hi,

 

I am working as Hadoop Administration since 2 years and i do have worked on installation,configuration for YARN and other components as well. I do have basic knowledge on cluster planning and installation of kerberos security  as well.

Now, I am planning to go for Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification and before making payments i want to know the difficulty level of the test and also want to know should be prepare topics before giving kick start to exams.

 

Also, some examples test questions will be helpfull to understand the difficulty level and level of preparation it needed.

 

Any information will be a great help for me.

 

Thanks

Hi Sidharth,

 

This page has information on topics covered (also mentioned in many of the anwered posts in the right sidebar). It’s tough to comment on difficulty - that’s dependent on each person. What I do know is that it is a multiple choice exam.


Good luck!

Hi,

I have registered for the certification but I don't know how to take sample
test and other procedures or work which could help me to clear the test

Thanks in advance for your help

There's no practice exam, as far as I know. The page I linked to does detail the specific topics to study though.

The above community link says there is a practice test before and also if there is no practice test then how will I get to know the format of questions

Re: Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

@sid2707 I can confirm that h@cloudera is correct that there is no longer a practice exam provided. The post you linked to is an older post from a time when there was a practice exam offered. I suggest checking out our community article of certification FAQs. Here is a tidbit from it around study material:

 

Q - Is there a Study Guide for Exams?

 

A - There is not a study guide available for exams, but Cloudera tells us exactly what we will be tested on.  

 

For example, the Required Skills at http://www.cloudera.com/content/www/en-us/training/certification/cca-spark.html tell us that we need to be able to join disparate datasets together using Spark. So go look up the join command in Spark.  Write a quick five line program in Scala.  Then write one in Python.  Also, browse the online documentation so you know where to look up the API during the exam (remember you will not have access to a search engine during the exam).  Putting in effort before the exam will save you a lot of effort during the exam.

Re: Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

Thanks. I am working as hadoop administrator but before giving test for
certification you need to have a bit of idea about test difficulty level
and you need some kind of practice test or at least few sample questions
which will give idea of your knowledge about the domain and preparedness
for the certification,which I am exactly looking for and really finding
myself confident of giving test because just subheading "Describe the
function of HDFS daemons" will not help you in understanding the type of
question you will be asked in the test.

Answer of hdfs function can be simple as distributed file system for hadoop
cluster but for certification your questions and answer both will be of
different level and in-depth .

Re: Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

Hey,

 

According to me, no one can provide you this kind of answer but you can search materials on google and get the complete study materials.

Re: Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

Hey all,

 

There is actually a new certification being rolled out. It is completely task based: https://www.cloudera.com/more/training/certification/cca-admin.html

 

If you've been an administrator for some time, you should be fine.

Re: Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification

For this new certification, is there any way to study or train correctly to give the test? Since I understand that it is more practical
