StreamSets Transformer Course Overview

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 two day Streamsets Transformer course is designed for audiences who are experienced with StreamSets Data Collector and Control Hub. It is fast-paced and assumes that students have good knowledge of the StreamSets Data Collector and pipeline development.

This two-day hands-on training course provides comprehensive coverage of StreamSets Transformer while at the same time providing an overview of the entire StreamSets eco-system. Additionally, today’s heterogeneous IT landscape requires businesses to seamlessly interact with a variety of environments such as traditional databases, Hadoop, DataBricks, SnowFlake, AWS, Azure. This course provides the in depth learning experience that prepares students to meet these challenges.

Participants will learn how to configure and use Transformer to access the various environments,  transfer and transform data, use the Pipeline Repository, configure and run jobs, and monitor the performance of pipelines across all instances of StreamSets products running in the organization. Throughout the course, hands-on exercises reinforce the concepts being discussed.


Experience with StreamSets Data Collector is required. Students preferably should have a general knowledge of operating systems, networking, programming concepts, and databases.


The course is designed for those who will be building, managing, monitoring, and administering data flow pipelines. No prior knowledge of StreamSets Transformer is required.
