Collabera TACT’s Apache Spark & Scala Training helps participants develop an understanding of the Spark Framework. The training will educate you on in-memory data processing of Spark, which makes it run much faster than Hadoop MapReduce. Spark & Scala Training helps you learn about RDDs and different APIs such as Spark Streaming, MLlib, SparkSQL, and GraphX. Apache Spark & Scala Training proves to be a significant contributor to a developer’s learning curve.

Who Is This Course For?

The primary beneficiary of this training can be someone who wishes to make a career in big data and wants to keep him or herself updated with the latest advancements in efficient processing of consistently growing data using Spark-related projects. The following professionals can reap the most benefit from this training:

  1. Big Data Professionals
  2. Software Engineers and Software Developers
  3. Data Scientists and Data Analysts


Participants should understand the basic concepts of programming. Also, an understanding of Scala can prove to be helpful but is not necessary.

Why Should You Learn Spark?

Apache Spark and Scala Certification is integral for a developer to have. In today’s world where data is growing at an unprecedented speed, there is a high requirement of analyzing this data to use it for business insights and strategies. Collabera TACT’s Spark and Scala Certification helps you with the nuances and environment of this framework. There are varied big data processing frameworks such as Hadoop, Spark, Storm, etc. However, Spark has the capability of working a hundred times faster than Hadoop when it comes to streaming and processing data, which makes it a preferred choice among developers for fast big data analysis.
