Most importantly, you will be learning TensorFlow from an industry expert with actual real-world experience and is TensorFlow certified.

The goal of this course is to teach you all the skills necessary for you to pass this exam and get your TensorFlow Certification so you can display it on your resume, LinkedIn, Github and other social media platforms to make you stand out as a top candidate for recruiters looking for TensorFlow developers.

Here is a full course breakdown of everything you will learn:

This TensorFlow course is very hands-on and project based. You won't just be staring at us teach and code. We'll leave that for other tutorials and courses.

You will actually be running experiments, doing exercises and building real-world machine learning models and projects to mimic real life scenarios. We will also show you what the TensorFlow exam will look like for you. By the end of it all, you will develop the skillset needed to develop modern deep learning solutions that big tech companies encounter.

Fair warning, this course is very comprehensive, but don't be intimidated, we will teach you everything from scratch!

Answers to (at least some of) your questions

Are there any prerequisites for this course?

  • No previous TensorFlow knowledge required. Basic understanding of Machine Learning is helpful but if you've taken Daniel's Machine Learning course (part of the ZTM Academy), you're all set!
  • Mac / Windows / Linux - any operating systems will work

Why should I learn TensorFlow and get the TensorFlow Developer Certificate?

  • Lots of jobs available: Used by major companies like Google, Airbnb, Uber, DeepMind, Intel, IBM, Twitter means there is huge job demand for TensorFlow developers. TensorFlow is outgrowing other popular ML tools like PyTorch in the job market.
  • High demand = High salary: Per ZipRecruiter, the avg annual salary for a TensorFlow developer in the United States is $148,508.
  • Old fashioned FUN: Learning TensorFlow allows you to build deep learning models for a range of tasks such as regression, computer vision (finding patterns in images), natural language processing (finding patterns in text) and time series forecasting (predicting future trends given a range of past events). That's pretty damn awesome!

Who is this course for?

  • You want a step-by-step guide to pass the TensorFlow Developer Certificate exam so that you can join Google's Certificate Network and get hired at a top company, making over $100,000 / year
  • You want to be recognized as a top tier quality candidate by recruiters at leading companies
  • Anyone who wants to learn TensorFlow and how to pass the TensorFlow exam from an industry expert (Daniel Bourke) who has taken and passed the exam and has actually worked in the field
  • Students, developers, and data scientists who want to demonstrate practical machine learning skills by actually building and training real models using TensorFlow
  • Anyone looking to expand their knowledge when it comes to AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning
  • Anyone looking to get real-world experience building TensorFlow models using Computer Vision, Convolutional Neural Networks and Natural Language Processing with the latest version of TensorFlow

Do you provide a certificate of completion?

We definitely do and they are quite nice. You will also be able to add Zero To Mastery Academy to the education section of your LinkedIn profile as well.

Can I use the course projects in my portfolio?

Yes, you’d be crazy not to! You won't just be staring at us teach. You will actually be running experiments, doing exercises and building machine learning models and projects to mimic real life scenarios.


Many of our students tell us the projects they built while following along with our courses were what got them interviews and because they built the projects themselves, they could confidently explain and walk through their work during the interview. You know what that means? Job offer!

Can I download the videos?

Definitely. You can download any and all lessons for personal use. We do everything we can to make learning easy, fun, and accessible whether that’s on your commute, on a flight or if you just have limited access to good wifi.

Can I learn TensorFlow and pass the exam with free resources?

Yes, of course you can. You can go learn all the skills you need by going through the TensorFlow documentation. In fact, when I need to practice something, I copy the documentation examples verbatim (every line of code), practice understanding it line by line, then see if I can do it myself.


However, that will likely take you a long time. This course puts you on a fast track to passing the TensorFlow exam by providing you with a clear step-by-step guide with absolutely everything you need to learn in one place.
