CCP: Data Engineering Exam

avatar
Explorer

Hello,

 

I'm trying to study for the exam, but I am trying to find out what are the main tools/subject to study for this exam.

 

Should we focus on Sqoop (Import&Export), Flume, Kafka, Hive, Spark and Oozie?

 

Am I missing anything? Or studying more than I should once my background for now is only Sqoop and Hive?

 

Best regards,

David

The CCP Data Engineer page explains the skills required and the test environment which you will be using to complete tasks. It should have the information you are looking for.

Ok, first of all thanks for you reply @cjervis.

 

I've checked that page, but it's not specific, it have all the Cloudera tools which is quite impossible to use them all right?

 

It is important to us, to have guidelines like the page of the Spark certification exam, what does not happens with Data Engineer page.

 

Thanks again,

David

Ah, I see what you mean now. The certification team has bee updating the pages to add a sample question and additional information but don't seem to have changed this one yet. I'll reach out and see what I can find out.

Hi @cjervis, do you have some news regarding this topic?

Sorry about the delay. I heard back from the certification team the other day and didn't get around to posting a reply.

 

Basically, they advised theat the CCP: Data Engineering certification is to show your "mastery" of the subjects covered. As a result they do not provide further details on the exam or sample questions.

Thanks @cjervis.

 

So we should be able to know the best solution for each topic within the given time, no matter the tools we use?

I guess that I am not clear still. For the data engineering examination are we expected to code in Scala or Python? It seems to me like it is more about knowing about Cloudera and lots of data usage and transformation. Can someone please answer the question clearly

 

Thanks,
