Preparing for the Google Cloud Professional Data Engineer Examination (GC-PGCPDEE)

This course will help you prepare for Google Cloud's Professional Data Engineer certification exam. This session uses lectures, quizzes, and discussions to help you become familiar with the structure and format of the exam. You'll take part in exam question reasoning and case comprehension, get tips from certified experts, and review topics from the Data Engineering curriculum. At the end of the course, you'll take an ungraded practice exam and then a graded practice exam that will simulate the exam-taking experience.

The training will be delivered in collaboration with PUE as Google Cloud Authorized Training Partner
