Being Certified should carry weight. That's why we offer two levels of testing, for both Desktop and Server.

Validate your experience using Tableau, and augment your career with data analytics training.

Review our Certification Program Guide to answer your questions and help prepare you for exam success.

Version 9 Certification - Certification exams for version 9 products will release 1-2 months following the product release. If you have achieved version 8 Qualified Associate or Certified Professional, you will only need to pass the v9 Delta exam to receive a new certificate and title for the v9 Qualified Associate or v9 Certified Professional. If you have not achieved one of those titles on version 8, you will need to take the full v9 exams to be certified on the version 9 products.
