Bhupinder Singh:
I have very great experience of the Informatica PowerCenter 9.X Developer & Admin training at Edureka. Instructor was a professional trainer with the good practical experience.
Abhishek Shreshta:
I have taken two courses (Informatica and Teradata) through Edureka. I think this is best online training platform that I had ever taken. I am very happy for getting trained from EDUREKA. The overall course is very much organized (Awesome). All the labs were on real time solution. After the training, I was confident to pursue my career in informatica and with a month I got a full time opportunity as a informatica developer. There was separate interview preparation session which really helps me to crack the informatica interview. Next, I am planning to take Big Data class. My overall experience with the edureka was awesome. I highly recommend everyone to join Edureka whoever is interested in learning online.
Thank you Edureka!!
