Our Data Vault CDVP2® Boot Camp class provides an introduction to the Data Vault 2.0 System of Business Intelligence as well as intermediate topics. This course covers the business justification for the DV 2.0 solution and provides a technical overview of the solution’s methodology, architecture, and model – basically the why, what, and how aspects of designing, building, and implementing a DV 2 Enterprise Data Warehouse. Course includes a practicum in hands-on design and discusses ELT/ETL best practices as well as SQL code examples/templates.

Updated my knowledge 🙂 Thank you Cindi Meyersohn for the training

Course Agenda

CDVP2 = Certified Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner Course & Workshop:  an intensive course consisting of 90% lecture and roughly 10% hands-on workshop.

The workshop requires students to design an Entity Relationship diagram, in Data Vault 2.0 Style format, annotating their reasoning, their assumptions, and any potential open ended questions they may have. The objective of the workshop is: move the students to execute in an agile time-line, provide hands on knowledge work during class time, and to learn how to think about Data Vault models. The objective is not to have the groups finish a full design, but see how far they can get in the time allotted.  

DataRebels offers this Instructor-led course across multiple day formats of from 3 to 7  days.  The content of the 3-day Boot Camp agenda remains the same for extended day courses, however, the hours spent in the classroom per day  are reduced.  For example, the 4-day course slows the pace down to 7 hours of lecture and devotes the remaining time on Day 4 to the workshop; the 5-dy course breaks the course into five 6 hour days with the fifth day devoted entirely to the workshop.

​The practitioner certification test is included as a part of the course.  The test is offered ​privately on-line.  The student is granted access to the exam once the course completed and will be given four (​4) weeks to complete the exam.  ​We highly recommend studying, as the test is not easy.   It is open book, ​open note.​  The course includes one free retake should the student not pass the exam on the first attempt.

The Training format is:

  • 1 day of On-line CBT Video based training,
  • 8 hours of run-time divided in to Modules; Modules are broken down in to 15 minute video segments.
  • in 3 or up to 7 days of in-person live training

Note: It is imperative that you watch ALL the videos in the on-line portion of the course prior to the start of your Instructor-led course. Failure to do so will result in the student missing a significant portion of the content and being unable to keep up with the lecture.

The following Business Roles benefit from attending the first 2 hours to the first day of the in-person course, as well as attending the video-based training:  *Note: the Scrum/Sprint Leads who are to lead teams in build designs require all days of training, including the CBT intro day.
