Cloudera is in the Hadoop skillset mix with a number of certifications. None require prerequisites. The tests are administered and proctored by national testing service PearsonVUE and can be taken at any test site at any time, which makes them among the more convenient. Cloudera clearly expects its Cloudera Certified Professional certs to not only help IT folks advance their own careers, but also to advance industry Hadoop buy-in.

When Spiceworks surveyed IT professionals recently about their attitudes toward certifications, one of the most interesting data points was that about half of the respondents will be paying for their continuing IT education themselves this year. Only 56 percent said that their employers would pay for training in 2014. But half of the IT pros said they think that certifications are very valuable or extremely valuable to their careers. And 80 percent of them said they plan to complete some training or certification this year. Since having to pay for continuing education yourself often really means you'll need to find some free or lower-cost training, let's take a look at a range of vendor-specific, higher education, online and free online training resources. We'll begin with one of the hottest IT skill sets for 2014: Big Data, aka analytics and/or business intelligence.
