Training FAQ



Why do I need to create a Learner Account ?

Databricks has a Learning Management System (LMS) to manage our customers’ trainings and for the best experience we associate all of your past and current Databricks trainings and certifications to a single account.

How do I create my Learner Account ?

Click the red Academy Log In button in the upper right-hand corner of this page and scroll down to the “Don’t have an account? Sign up!” section and fill out all the required fields. You will be required to create a new password and verify your email - please make sure you are using your corporate email domain to enjoy all the corporate benefits your organization may have with Databricks

Where do I log in to see my account ?

By default, you will be asked to log in when you are ready to purchase courses in the shopping cart or you may log in at any time when accessing the Academy content by clicking on the red box called “My Account” on the top right.

How can I contact Databricks Training Support?

Click the "Contact" button from header bar

Email us at training@databricks.com

Note using the blue "Log In" from the main Databricks web site is referring to your Databricks Community Licence and NOT your training account

What Account Log On Details should I use?

Databricks values your privacy and so offers tokenized security login. Please do not share your details with anyone. We advise that If you already have a Databricks Community Edition license, then please use the same login credentials as we will be shortly merging that account with your training portal log in but you should use your business email as the system will automatically apply any available promotions to that email domain

How do I run the self-paced course notebooks?

The notebooks must be imported into a Databricks workspace.

How do I access a Databricks workspace?

Important: Access to a Databricks workspace is not part of your course purchase price. You are responsible for getting access to Databricks. Currently, there are several available options:

Use your employer's workspace

If your employer is a Databricks customer, and you have access to your employer's Databricks workspace, we recommend using that workspace.

Use a Databricks trial account

If you cannot use an employer's workspace, you can use a Databricks trial.

For a trial of Azure Databricks, follow these steps:

  1. Set up your Azure account
  2. Create an Azure Databricks Workspace
  3. Import the Courseware into Azure Databricks.

For a trial of AWS Databricks, see this page.

Use Databricks Community Edition

You can sign up for Databricks Community Edition here.

NOTE:Every course except ETL 3 will run on the free Databricks Community Edition.

Why can I not find all of my purchased Trainings?

By default, when accessing your training account, you will see the current courses in "My Dashboard".

If you are looking for your completed courses, then change your Filter Results to "Completed"

Your certificates will be found under the Awards section and it is from here you can share your success with your Linked In account

How do I use my Corporate Training Credits?

You must request a coupon code from your company's Authorized Owner, to be applied in the shopping cart and make sure you select the correct payment type. The Authorized owner will be required to approve or reject each request for training before your registration is regarded as successful and you will receive notification in your Learner Portal

How do I see the balance of training credits?

Only the authorized person will have access to see the balance of Training Credits held in their account.

There must be sufficient training credits to enable a course to be purchased, otherwise the authorized person will receive a notification
