Course Content

We’ve designed this course to be a complete resource for you to learn how to use Google Cloud to pass the Professional Data Engineer Certification Exam!

As you may have heard, Google Cloud is growing at a tremendous rate, with almost 50% YoY growth, and has a higher growth rate than overall cloud. Since Google has some of the most advanced data and machine learning offerings of any cloud provider, it makes sense to get skilled in data engineering on one of the leading cloud platforms today.

What is a GCP Professional Data Engineer?

Professional Data Engineers enable data-driven decision making by collecting, transforming, and publishing data. A Data Engineer should be able to design, build, operationalize, secure, and monitor data processing systems with a particular emphasis on security and compliance; scalability and efficiency; reliability and fidelity; and flexibility and portability. A Data Engineer should also be able to leverage, deploy, and continuously train pre-existing machine learning models.

While this course is specifically designed to help you pass the Google Cloud Professional Data Engineer Certification Exam, we believe anyone that is interested in using Google Cloud to create development operations for the latest data products will benefit massively from taking this course. A foundational understanding of Google Cloud is highly recommended, so we’ve included the Associate Cloud Engineer training materials in the cost of this course.
