Welcome to Data Vault Modeling and Certification.  This class covers the Data Vault modeling approach and architectural fundamentals for applying data vault to the EDW.

This is the official Data Vault Certified Data Modeler course.  Successful completion of this course and the certification exam leads to the designation of certified data vault data modeler (CDVDM).

This course is delivered using a hybrid technique including three (3) days in the classroom working including lectures and interactive small-group exercises.  Plus two (2) weeks of online on-demand video lectures and labs delivered on DataVaultAcademy.com.  All course materials, labs, exercises, and online lessons are included in the course registration.

The 3 day certification classroom portion starts off with a Data Vault Review, which refreshes the basic concepts behind the Data Vault. Students are expected to interact with the instructor during this review.  The review is followed by a Case-Study workshop where students will be divided up in teams.  Each team will be responsible for building a different piece of the Data Vault Model - answering business questions, identifying assumptions, and drawing a Data Vault Model.  This is the bulk of this class consisting of a total of 8 hours of learning time.  At the end of which, the students will either hand-in their work or be asked to present to the rest of the class on their findings.  The class then completes with a small prep-time for testing, and the administration of the Data Vault certification test.
