About This Module

This module introduces data engineers and data analysts to the Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) service. It introduces basic concepts, and then provides a choice to continue with a Data Engineer track, which shows how to create and tune important entities within CDW, or with a Data Analyst track, which shows how to access tables and views using different interface methods.

Module Length

This module includes 52 minutes of video content. The videos for the Data Analyst track add to 38 minutes; the videos for the Engineer track add to 33 minutes. Note: In order to complete the hands-on exercises for this course, students must have access to CDW through their organization.

Audience and Prerequisites

This module is designed for data analysts and data engineers. There are no prerequisites, though access to a working Cloudera Data Platform with CDW is required in order to complete the hands-on exercises.

Grading for This Module

There are seven chapters in this module, but you only need to complete four quizzes with 75% or better to pass. (One chapter does not include a quiz.) 

After the first three chapters, you can choose the two Data Engineer track chapters, or the two Data Analyst track chapters. Your reported grade will include the quizzes for chapters you did not take, but the overall passing level has been lowered to 50%. This means you do not need to take the quizzes for the other track.

However, you are welcome to complete all seven modules (and take all six quizzes). 


Through videos and hands-on exercises, learners achieve proficiency in CDW and develop the skills required to:

  • Identify the primary purpose and benefits of CDW
  • Access CDW and navigate different pages within it
  • Create a Database Catalog and a Virtual Warehouse in CDW (Data Engineer)
  • Describe how CDW scales automatically (Data Engineer)
  • Change settings for Hive and Impala Virtual Warehouses (Data Engineer)
  • Run a query using Hue or DAS with a CDW Virtual Warehouse (Data Analyst)
  • Connect to a Virtual Warehouse from the command line (Data Analyst)
  • Connect a third-party tool to a CDW Virtual Warehouse (Data Analyst)

Over all the course was Very good. Although in Some Modules, the Quiz was not relevant, it was for the Next section. And Lastly, please add more Questios, atleast make it 10. And a grand Quiz at the end. Lastly, please add a LinkedIn addition Link, so that people can add the Course Completion t their CV or LinkedIn. This will be very helpful. As in my current organization, I was pitched for working with a client, and my CV was shared, They are running Clouedra Public Cloud, and wanted to have someone with deep knowldge of Cloudera. I would have been very helpful If I could share the links of my completed Courses, other than the Certification. Thank you, Mahmood Khan, (
