Google Cloud Certification Workshop—Data Engineer

(2 days)

Course Description

This course is designed to help IT professionals prepare for the Google Certified Professional—Data Engineer Certification Exam.

In this course, we review the exam guidelines and product strategies for the major Google Cloud Platform storage, big data, and analytics services covered by the exam. We examine concepts related to data transformation, real-time processing, visualization, and machine learning and best practices to solve common problems.

This course assumes prior knowledge of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and is not an introduction to GCP.

Learning Objectives

  • Prepare for the GCP Data Engineer certification exam
  • Choose the appropriate GCP data storage solution
  • Architect batch and streaming data processing pipelines on GCP
  • Leverage GCP tools for data manipulation, analysis, and visualization
  • Build machine learning models with GCP tools
  • Analyze case studies to optimize data storage and processing solutions


IT professionals interested in obtaining the Google Certified Professional—Data Engineer certification. Data scientists and machine learning practitioners who want to learn more about taking optimal advantage of the big data services provided by Google Cloud Platform will also benefit from this course.


Prior to taking the Google Cloud Data Engineer Professional exam, students should have prior experience working with Google Cloud Platform big data services. The exam tests one’s understanding of architecting secure and reliable business solutions that leverage Google Cloud Platform for storing, analyzing, and visualizing data. We strongly recommend taking the Data Engineering on Google Cloud Platform course prior to attending this workshop.

Exam Prep

Included with this course are sample quizzes and numerous case study examples that will help you both prepare for the exam, and have a greater level of understanding of how to build data analytics and machine learning systems on Google Cloud Platform.
