MapR expands free On-Demand Hadoop and Spark training

Written by 

MapR has announced it is expanding its On-Demand Training programme and has already trained over 50,000 developers, analysts and administrators.

Big data practitioners MapR are doing their bit to reduce the shortage of big data experts, by training over 50,000 developers, analysts and administrators on their free MapR On-Demand Training programme, an estimated in-kind contribution of over $250 million, and as a result MapR are adding additional courses on Hadoop, Spark, and other big data technologies.

Coursework includes the same level of depth and content as instructor-led training, with hands-on exercises, labs and quizzes as well as certification exams for different audiences, leading to certified Hadoop and HBase professional designations for developers, data analysts and administrators.

“When we launched these free on-demand courses, we set an ambitious enrolment goal of 10,000 students, which is estimated to be a $50 million in-kind contribution to the open source community,” said Suzanne Ferry, vice president of global education and training, MapR Technologies. “With a response five times over original projections, the On-Demand Training offerings are updated continually to address new technologies, like Spark, which in turn helps meet the ongoing skill development interests of company employees, industry consultants, and individuals. Our comprehensive online curriculum is driving the emergence of a strong community in support of the latest advancements in big data technologies.”
