Authorized Training Partners

Overview

Training Partners include our growing network of delivery partners, training resellers and academic partnerships. Authorized Training Partners act as an extension of Confluent training offerings around Apache Kafka — utilizing Confluent-generated course content and hands-on exercises.

Outside of the US, we are actively growing our network of Authorized Training Partners to deliver Confluent-designed training courses for Apache Kafka and the Kafka ecosystem. All Confluent Authorized Training Partners undergo the same rigorous certification process as our internal Confluent instructors; individuals taking courses through our Authorized Training Partners will experience the same quality as those who attend courses delivered directly by Confluent.

Authorized Training Partners are carefully evaluated before being invited to join the program. Companies wishing to be considered should contact us directly.

Please note: Preferred candidates are companies that already provide training in other technology areas.
