Thanks for asking @cdhhadoop. You can find the answers you seek on the CCA Administrator Certification page. To speed you along though, I have mostly copied and pasted the information over (in bold) from the page for you below. I suggest looking over the certification page as well. 

 

1. How is the exam pattern , Is it going to be objective type questions or any other . Please provide the details.

 

Number of Questions: 8–12 performance-based (hands-on) tasks on pre-configured Cloudera Enterprise cluster.

Exam Question Format: Each CCA question requires you to solve a particular scenario. Some of the tasks require making configuration and service changes via Cloudera Manager, while others demand knowledge of command line Hadoop utilities and basic competence with the Linux environment.


2. Is there any Practice question sessions or the sample questions provided to test myself before attempting the exam.

 

There is not a set a practice questions but there is one example at the bottom of the page. Also if you look over the required skills section on the certification page it provides the items you will expected to be able to perform.

 

3. Does Cloudera provide any trainings for this course? If yes, can you let me know the details about the same.

 

Audience and Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for taking any Cloudera certification exam; however, a background in system administration, or equivalent training is strongly recommended. The CCA Administrator exam (CCA131) follows the same objectives as Cloudera Administrator Training and the training course is an excellent part of preparation for the exam.


4. Is there any offical course material to be prepared from cloudera on this. Please provide the link if i can download the same.

 

There are no freely downloadable official course materials.

@cjervis ,

 

I have small doubt. What is the certifcation name CCAH or  CCA131 or CCA500?

 

Thanks,

CCA Administrator is also known as CCA131. Individuals who earn the CCA Administrator certification have demonstrated the core systems and cluster administrator skills sought by companies and organizations deploying Cloudera in the enterprise.
