Welcome to Exasol Training


Our goal is simple: For you to get the most out of Exasol!

Exasol is easy to work with and no extensive training is required. Our short and to-the-point courses will get you started and are designed to ensure you get the best out of a great product. We deliver courses in two different formats:

Course Delivery Formats

Exacademy (Online Learning) 

Team Training (Instructor-led)


This is our primary delivery format: Free online training with videos, quizzes and hands-on practices. Our online courses:

  • are free of charge
  • are completely self-paced (do it whenever you want, no deadlines, no expire time)
  • could be completed within one day per course
  • contain videos, quizzes and hands-on practices
  • offer charged certification as an option

The content of these free courses is the same as with the instructor-led courses. Certification is optional and comes with a charge of 150 Euro per attempt. One free certification exam is granted per course if you complete most of the course's hands-on exercises.

Instructor-led team trainings are a more traditional training environment and can be conducted at customer locations or via web conferences remotely. The content of the instructor-led courses is the same as with our free online courses. They have a fixed duration of one day per course.

Instructor-led training is charged - usually, your account manager will negotiate pricing. Certification is included with team training.
