Databricks Certified Data Engineer Professional exam

Valued Contributor

Hi team,

I'm going to take the Databricks Certified Data Engineer Professional exam.

It's really hard. Could anyone give me some materials or resources.

I'm already taken the preparation course on customer.databricks but seem it's not enough knowlege.

There are two courses in Databricks Academy. They are bundled in the Data Engineer Learning Plan.

  1. Data Engineering with Databricks v3 (12 hours) for DE Associate
  2. Advanced Data Engineering with Databricks (also 12 hours) for DE Professional

The first course also has extensive slides and code.

Try to attend a Certification Overview either as a live Webinar or as a course in DB Academy. It covers the certification topics more granularly. There are also prep courses and practice tests on Udemy
