Hadoop Certification in India or Outside USA

If you waiting to write Cloudera exam for Hadoop certification , then there is good news for you.

Cloudera is going to organize exams through Pearson VUE center starting 1 May 2012 throughout the world.

Exams :
Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCAH) and Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop (CCDH)

Start date : 1 May 2012
Testing center : Pearson VUE
Exam fees : $295 US

Another good news is that , its no more necessary to attend training prior to writing exam in Hadoop world. So that huge training fees can be avoided if we study on our own. (At least I cannot afford to pay (1600 USD)that training cost its huge , Cloudera people are you listening ? USD 1600 is huge 1 USD = 50 INR)

This is great news for many people in India or around the world outside USA who wanted to write certification exam.
