The Prefect Associate Certification Course (PACC) is a two-day immersive training where you will learn how to coordinate your dataflow with Prefect.

Prefect is like air traffic control for your dataflow, giving you both observability and orchestration across your data stack. 🛫

The PACC is a guided experience where you will learn Prefect 2 from Prefect employees.

  • automatic retries
  • caching
  • scheduling
  • automatic logging
  • integrations with popular data tools
  • notifications
  • a collaborative graphical user interface
  • observability across your data stack

Who is this Course For?

This course is appropriate for data engineers, analytics engineers, machine learning engineers, and data scientists who know at least Python basics.

Course Structure

The PAC Course is designed to be a supportive, hands-on experience to foster collaboration and creativity.

The course is broken down into eight modules and a final capstone project. Each module has the following components:

  • Discussion and instruction: 15-30 minutes to introduce the module's core concepts
