What is a Data Engineer?

A Data Engineer is responsible for designing, building and maintaining the infrastructure required to keep data available within a business. They will typically be working with Data Analysts and Data Scientists to make sure they have the data they need. They will be working with a range of different tools and technologies, increasingly cloud based.

Who hires Data Engineers?

Data Engineers can be found within many organizations, with demand for the role growing as organizations realise the value of data. In most companies, they will be based in either the data team or the IT team. In small companies there may only be a single data engineer, while bigger companies now typically have a whole team.

How much do DataCamp Certifications cost?

DataCamp Certification is included with your premium subscription, so there are no additional costs. When you subscribe you will have access to all of the learning materials to prepare for your certification, practice assessments and exams and the certification itself.

Does DataCamp provide materials to prepare for Certification?

Yes! As part of your subscription, you will have access to our content library that includes hundreds of hours of courses, practice and projects. You won’t need to complete it all though. We have curated a series of Career tracks that will guide you through building the core skills you will need for certification. Once you feel ready, we also provide a range of resources to help you prepare for the exams themselves, giving you a chance to experience the process before you start.

When do I have to take the exams?

For DataCamp Certifications you can take the exams whenever you want. Just like the rest of the DataCamp platform, we have designed the certification process so that you can fit it into your schedule. For some of our exams, once you start you will have a set number of hours to complete, and you will have 30 days overall to complete all of the requirements. But otherwise, the process is designed so that everyone has the opportunity to get certified.

How long are DataCamp Certifications valid for?

Our Career Certifications are valid for two years from the date awarded. The data industry is moving quickly and it is important to keep your skills up to date, so you will be invited to retake the exams after two years, or if you would prefer, you can attempt to upgrade to a more advanced level certification.

Ready, Set, Certify!
