Few credentials in the business world carry the value of SAP certification. Those who hold it have honed their skills through rigorous study or direct experience. They have demonstrated their abilities by passing demanding, process-oriented exams. Regardless of whether you are an SAP partner, customer, or user, SAP certification can give you a distinct competitive advantage.
In order to keep pace with the growing demand for SAP certification, we have significantly enhanced and expanded our certification program. You can now obtain certifications at three levels of expertise associate, professional and master. Learn more about each of these levels, certification focus areas, and exam preparation.
We've also enhanced the way you can find the right certification for you. You can now search on the SAP solution, your focus area, or your role in the organization. Whether you want to enhance your skills, differentiate your practice, or define your organization as a center of excellence, there is an appropriate certification for you. View a schedule of planned upcoming certifications.
To register for a certification exam, please visit the local SAP Education Web site for the country where you'd like to take an exam. Or, you can take an exam at one of our partner locations.
In addition, we have expanded the resources available to our SAP-certified community so you can interact with other SAP certified individuals and enjoy exclusive discounts on products and services. Personal Certification Logos

Focus areas are designed to help you find the certification that is right for you. They allow you to refine your search by an area of concentration and still see the full range of solutions that may interest you. All three levels of certification associate, professional, and master apply to the three focus areas for which you can achieve SAP certification: application, technology, or development.
Application certification This certification is available for specific SAP solutions. You can take the certification exam after completing the appropriate solution academy course and case study, or the equivalent SAP standard curriculum. If you already have significant experience implementing an SAP solution, you can take the exam without completing the course work.
Technology certification If you complete the solution academy or SAP training classes, you can take the technology exam to become certified. If you already have significant experience with SAP technology, you can take the exam without completing the course work.
Development certification This certification is available for individuals who are developing applications for SAP solutions. After you complete the necessary solution academy or standard curriculum, you can take the technology exam to become a certified developer.
How to Prepare for Certification Exams
Every certification comes with its own set of preparation tactics. To help you prepare, we recommend that you review the "Competency Areas" portion of Web pages that describe individual certification exams, where you'll learn more about recommended course work and useful content. Please note that there are no specific prerequisites to sit for a certification exam. For example, you are not required to complete an associate-level exam to qualify for a professional-level exam, and course work is recommended, but not required.
