Cloudera Summer School provides the content you need to sharpen your skills in a range of topics (from machine learning to growing your business to cloud architectures), organised in both a business and a technical track.

How does it work?

You can choose as many topics as you like; scroll down to see a detailed list of what we have on offer. Each topic is delivered in two weekly shots of material. If you choose two or more topics, we will spread delivery out over a four week period so you won’t get overloaded. Unless that is, you tell us you’d like to get everything in one fell swoop since you’re going on holiday and would like to pack it in your suitcase to go through it all on the beach. It’s your choice.

Get your grades!

It wouldn’t be school without grades. In the fourth week, you’ll receive a short exam for each topic you selected so that you can test your knowledge.

Good grades get rewarded!

For each participant of the Cloudera Summer School that successfully passes the final exam, Cloudera will offer a 10% discount off Cloudera list price for one Cloudera OnDemand training class or certification for such participant. Terms and conditions apply.
