More than 200,000 individuals have participated in Databricks' certification and training over the past four years, including thousands of partners. In the past year alone, over 75,000 individuals have been trained and over 1,500 customers and partners have also earned their Databricks Academy Certifications. Today, we are pleased to announce new digital badges so you can share your accomplishments with your network!

The need for continuous learning

As we meet with customers and partners at virtual events and support them on proofs of concept (POCs) and production deployments, one of the most common requests is for training to help them innovate even faster. We are frequently asked for more certification programs and accreditation options to help data teams get started quickly and increase the depth of their knowledge and expertise with specific skills.

Databricks digital badges are now available

We are pleased to now offer digital badges for customers and partners. Digital badges are a great way to showcase your knowledge and experience with Databricks across a range of skill levels and competencies.

Skill up your team

As your team starts their data + AI journey with Databricks, they receive digital badges that can be shared on social media and in email signatures with a link to a website to validate their progress. As your team expands their knowledge and gains more experience, they can receive digital badges that reflect their growing skillset.

Partner training, certification and digital badging

Databricks partners are critical to help organizations understand the business value of Databricks and effectively deliver customer solutions.

Digital badges make it easy for customers to see which partners have the capabilities they need to implement their vision with Databricks-powered data and AI solutions.
