In this NoSQL training course you will learn the basics of NoSQL datastores.

NoSQL is the counterpart of relation databases and is used when speed and scalability is needed. You can think for example about Big Data solutions.

Among subjects that covered are different NoSQL systematic data storage, the emergence of NoSQL, various underlying theories, MongoDB, Cassandra, Neo4j, Riak, NoSQLK moddeling, programming with NoSQL, security and far more.


After completing this course you are familiar with NoSQL, the different type data storage and you can use NoSQL datastores in programming.


You have experience as a DBA or software developer.

Course options

We offer several optional training products to enhance your learning experience. If you are planning to use our training course in preperation for an official exam then whe highly recommend using these optional training products to ensure an optimal learning experience. Sometimes there is only a practice exam or/and practice lab available.

Optional practice exam (trial exam)

To supplement this training course you may add a special practice exam. This practice exam comprises a number of trial exams which are very similar to the real exam, both in terms of form and content. This is the ultimate way to test whether you are ready for the exam. 

Optional practice lab

To supplement this training course you may add a special practice lab. You perform the tasks on real hardware and/or software applicable to your Lab. The labs are fully hosted in our cloud. The only thing you need to use our practice labs is a web browser. In the LiveLab environment you will find exercises which you can start immediatelyThe lab enviromentconsist of complete networks containing for example, clients, servers,etc. This is the ultimate way to gain extensive hands-on experience.
