“For those working with Hadoop and MapReduce, a CCHP certification serves to establish them as a trusted and valuable resource,” said Christophe Bisciglia, Founder at Cloudera. “Developers, technical leaders, and data management specialists can use a CCHP credential to demonstrate their experience with Hadoop and MapReduce while customers can reduce risk by relying on contractors and suppliers who retain current Cloudera Certification for their personnel.”
