Course Description

The Apache Kafka certification training course provides the skills to become a great prominent data developer to the candidate. During the training, we will provide the candidate with the knowledge of fundamental concepts, including Kafka and Kafka API clusters. This course also includes advanced levels such as Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams, Kafka integration with Hadoop, and Storm and Spark.

To learn the Kafka course along with the components.

To set up a Kafka cluster from one end to another. It also takes into consideration the Hadoop and YARN cluster.

Knowledge about the Java concepts and Key points should be evident in the candidate's head before taking this course. Our CertOcean institute provides a complementary course along with the Apache Kafka certification training course, which is the "Java Essentials."

The CertOcean's Apache Kafka certification training course will give you a clear idea about Kafka's Architecture, installation of Kafka, Configuration, and tuning performance. Also, the Client APIs of Kafka. 

THE minimum RAM required for the course is 4 GB, but one should go for 8 GB as per the suggestions.

25 GB should be free minimum disk space.

The processor should be i3 or above than that.

With local access, the candidate can set up CertOcean's virtual machine in the candidate's system.  In the LMS, we have is penned down the guidelines for setting up the virtual machine in your system. One can install the virtual machine on both Mac and Windows devices.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

How can any candidate miss any lecture at the CertOcean's Apache Kafka when we provide them with two such unique options whatever of their choice! 

If a candidate misses any lecture, he/she can go through that later on in the recording part.

He/she can join the next live batch if the candidate misses the lecture of their batch.

We at CertOcean are known for our expertise and because of our experts. CertOcean institute for Apache Kafka has the best experts with 10 to 12 years of experience in the Information Technology (IT) sector and a fantastic learning experience. 

Of course, the candidate will get a Kafka certification of completion of the course. CertOcean will certify you based on the project decided by the expert panel.
