We’re thrilled to celebrate two years of Cribl University and the Cribl Certified program. Since its inception, Cribl University has been committed to providing free, on-demand, and self-paced training to equip you with the foundational data knowledge and practical skills to thrive in today’s data-driven world.

Sharing Our Expertise to Empower Yours

Data may be a small four letter word – what’s not small is the amount in which it continues to grow both in volume and value. Just like every other organization on the planet, Cribl generates, ingests, consumes, analyzes, and gains insights from data. We also happen to help many, many orgs navigate data challenges and empower them to unlock the value of all their data. And because we live this day in and day out, we know this takes unique, real-world data management skills to be successful across this metric-fueled landscape.

With the ever-growing demand for data expertise, a learning path through Cribl University is essential for navigating the complexities of data within your organization. Whether you’re new to the field or a seasoned professional, we have courses designed to equip you with the foundational knowledge and practical skills to manage your data ecosystem effectively, across the entire lifecycle of data management.

Free Education for All Data Pros

Cribl University’s philosophy is simple: education should be accessible and affordable. That’s why all our training courses and certifications are completely free. Yep – you read that correctly…as in zero dollars, pounds, euros, doll-hairs, seashells…you catch our drift. We believe that everyone in the data space should have the opportunity to learn and grow, regardless of budget. Our courses are designed to be convenient and self-paced, so you can learn at your own speed and fit training into your busy schedule. Our mission is to cultivate a new generation of data gurus – those who can navigate the ever-changing landscape of IT and security data and unlock its true potential. We aim to redefine a data engineer and data architect…no big deal.

The Cribl Certified Advantage

One of Cribl University’s foundational offerings is the Cribl Certified program (formerly CCOE). It’s a unique approach to professional technical certifications, designed to be the industry leader in data lifecycle management training. Earning a Cribl Certified credential validates your expertise and positions you as a leader in Cribl products and data management, and shows employers you have the skills necessary to get the job done. Who doesn’t want to be a highly sought-after asset for any organization? We’re shaping the future data leaders, the data maestros who will shape the way we understand and leverage data in the years to come.

Cribl Certified: The Growth Continues

We’re excited to announce the new, level 2 Cribl Certified Admin – Edge certification, which expands our Cribl Certified program to better align with Cribl’s growing suite of products. The CC Admin – Edge is designed to broaden your expertise in Cribl Edge and help you hone in on its capabilities for solving data needs at the Edge. You’ll better understand the role Cribl Edge plays in the design, implementation, and management of your organization’s data infrastructure.

The Cribl Certified credentials offer a unique path to data management expertise – here’s a quick glimpse at what is currently live and available:

  • Level 1: Cribl Certified User: We’ve revamped this foundational certification to provide a comprehensive understanding of our Cribl product ecosystem.
  • Level 2: Cribl Certified Admin – Stream: Revamped as well, this Admin level Stream focused certification helps prepare individuals to be the Stream expert within their organization.
  • Level 2: Cribl Certified Admin – Edge: This NEW certification focuses specifically on Cribl Edge, equipping you with the skills to deploy, manage, and optimize your edge data environment.
