Tableau Certification

Certify your Tableau expertise.

Differentiate yourself and get recognized

Test online

No need to go to a testing center. Exams are available online so you can test anytime, anywhere. In-person exams are offered at Tableau Conference and select Tableau Conference On Tours.

Augment your career

Holding a Tableau certification distinguishes you as an expert. Get noticed by your boss or potential employers.

Clearly communicate your expertise

Gain access to a community of certified users, official LinkedIn and Tableau community badges, and exclusive swag (for Certified Professionals only).

Version 10 exams will be available within 90 days of the product release. As version 10 exams become available, version 9 exams will be discontinued. If you purchased a version 9 exam, you will still be able to take your exam as scheduled.
