Cloudera Certified Professional: Data Scientist (CCP:DS)
Gain Recognition as a Leader in Big Data
CCP: Data Scientists have demonstrated their skills in working with Big Data at an elite level. Candidates must prove their abilities under real-world conditions by designing and developing a production-ready data science solution that is peer-evaluated for its accuracy, scaleability, and robustness.
I'm pumped to earn the CCP: Data Scientist credential! It holds true weight in the market because it replicates a real, sufficiently difficult Big Data scenario I would see on the job and requires a professional-level approach to solving problems. The exam captured all the relevant elements of data science and machine learning, and the Challenge made the experience completely non-trivial.
Prove Your Expertise at the Highest Level
Candidates must pass both of the following components to earn the full CCP: Data Scientist credential:
Data Science Essentials (DS-200)
In the written exam portion of CCP:DS, candidates are evaluated on their knowledge of fundamental data science topics. Candidates must pass DS-200 to become eligible for a Data Science Challenge. DS-200 is available year-round.
Data Science Challenge
In the practicum portion of CCP:DS, candidates are objectively evaluated and ranked based on their performance on a real-world data science problem. A Challenge must be passed within 24 months of completing DS-200 to earn CCP:DS. Challenges are offered twice per year, every other quarter.
