New Contributor

Hi All,

 

Does anyone know if CCP data scientist certification has been discontinued? I am not able to find it on Cloudera website. Thanks.

Effective immediately, we are phasing out CCP Data Scientist. We will continue to work with those candidates who have passed one of the exams to allow them to complete their evaluation but will no longer accept new candidates.

 

The data science field continues to see rapid change and growth. You’ll hear exciting product announcements from Cloudera in the weeks ahead with the intent to make data science workloads run more easily on Cloudera Enterprise, and to reach out to a broader data science community than the ones for whom this program was designed. We will continue to invest in substantial curriculum updates to reflect the changing product and market dynamics, and we’ll continually evaluate whether and when we should bring to market a redesigned certification at a future date.

Hi,

 

I registered for the ds700 exam in November and I have not yet written the exams. I plan to write the exams in June or July this year. However, since you have cancelled the certification, how can I get my refund. Who should I contact to get a refund?

 

Thanks

Hello,  I have ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED $$  of my own money held up now on this. I have been planning to take the exams in the Fall and have three of the $600 vouchers.

 

 I was given NO NOTIFICATION (let alone warning!) of this change .    When I went to a page to sign up I started to get 404's. THAT was when I found out.

 

How do I find out what to do now??

Hi,

I have registered for the DS700 exam in January and I have not yet written the exams. I was planning to write the exam in September this year. Cloudera has already phased out the certification, how can I get my refund. I have sent couple of emails on this to certification@cloudera.com and there is no response yet. How to proceed further any suggestions please.

Thanks,

Yes: it was already either 2 or 3 years ago. I got my money for it
reimbursed after the discontinuation: cloudera is v much a classy
organization.
