      I really enjoy all the training you provide, so do you have any training on Data Science? I searched in the website could not find one, I would be happy to join if you send me the link.


      Repeat Customer email :

      I have gone through Apache scala and spark training videos. The concepts explained very well in depth. I would like to know following details 
      1. I am interested for on Training module of Pig and Hive. While checking  found that "Hadoop Professional Training" covers pig and hive modules but not found separately.  Can I get pig and Hive module access only ? or I need to go for complete "Hadoop Professional Training" ?
      2. In addition to that, I need inputs from you. I need to go for Cloudera certificate but while checking found CCD410 "Hadoop Developer" is obsolete so if I go for "MapR Hadoop Developer Certification", what is market value? is it good to go for this exam? then interested for "MapR Hadoop Developer Certification"  Simulator  also
      I would like to know the cost for above 1 + 2.
