Professional Data Engineer Certification Course

Professional Data Engineer Training

The Professional Data Engineer is an instructor-led, hands-on certification training course. This course helps candidates prepare for the certification exam so that they can take the next step in their cloud career and demonstrate their competency in one of the most in-demand disciplines in the industry today.

The primary objective of this course is to prepare candidates for the Professional Data Engineer certification exam. Along the way, candidates consolidate their foundation in data engineering and machine learning, ensuring that by the end of the course, candidates learn to design and build data processing solutions, operationalise machine learning models, and gain a working knowledge of relevant GCP data processing tools and technologies.

This course is available in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Hobart and throughout Australia Live Virtually.

There are no pre-requisites for taking this course

Candidates can achieve this certification by passing the following exam(s).

Professional Data Engineer

The certification exam can be registered and attempted within 3 months of course/module completion at our training centre on weekdays during normal business hours (excludes public holidays)

Professional Data Engineer material provided.

  • Design, build and operationalise data solutions

  • ML APIs (e.g., Vision API, Speech API)
  • Customising ML APIs (e.g., AutoML Vision, Auto ML text)
  • Conversational experiences (e.g., Dialogflow)
  • Deploying an ML pipeline. Considerations include:
  • Ingesting appropriate data
  • Retraining of machine learning models (AI Platform Prediction and Training, BigQuery ML, Kubeflow, Spark ML)
  • Continuous evaluation
  • Choosing the appropriate training and serving infrastructure. Considerations include:
  • Distributed vs. single machine
  • Use of edge compute

Hardware accelerators (e.g., GPU, TPU)
