AWS Data Warehousing Training Overview

This Data Warehousing on AWS training course teaches attendees the concepts, strategies, and best practices for designing a cloud-based data warehousing solution using Amazon Redshift, the petabyte-scale data warehouse in AWS. Students learn how to collect, store, and prepare data for the data warehouse using AWS services such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon S3. In addition, this course explores how to use Amazon QuickSight to perform data analysis.

Accelebrate is an AWS Training Partner (ATP) and this hands-on official AWS Classroom Training course is taught by an accredited Amazon Authorized Instructor (AAI).
