StreamSets Administrator Course Overview

High-performance deployments deserve high-caliber training. The fastest, most reliable way to build proven skills in StreamSets is via expert instructor-led hands-on classroom training in a structured learning environment.

This 2-day hands-on training course provides comprehensive coverage for administrators of StreamSets Control Hub (SCH), StreamSets Data Collector (SDC), and StreamSets Transformer. Students will learn how to install, configure, and manage SCH, SDC, and Transformer. In this course, students will learn about StreamSets architecture, deployment design, monitoring and tuning, security, and upgrades. Throughout the course, hands-on exercises reinforce the concepts being discussed.


Students preferably should have a general knowledge of operating systems, networking, programming concepts, and databases.


The course is designed for system administrators, data flow engineers, and systems architects who will be managing, monitoring, and administering StreamSets environments. No prior knowledge of StreamSets is required.
