About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

In this lab challenge, you will need to prove your knowledge of the Data Build Tool (dbt) by creating a project, defining sources, creating different models, organizing and testing models, and building the dbt project. The objectives you will need to achieve represent valuable skills that Data Analysts and Data Engineers need to have. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of Data Build Tool. This lab challenge simulates building a solution in a real-world scenario. As with any real-world scenario, this lab will not guide you through the steps needed to complete it.

What will be assessed

  • Your ability to use Data Build Tool
  • Knowledge of dbt models
  • Work with dbt tests

Intended audience

  • Data Analysts and Data Engineers, especially those focused on data modeling and transformation


  • Good knowledge of SQL
  • Good knowledge of dbt
