The complete guide to Qlik certifications and qualifications

%Qlik Sense Reporting Tool & Alternative to NPrinting%Qalyptus

Certifications and qualifications are two procedures used to test your skills regarding the requirements of uses of a service offered by an independent organization.

The goal is that you, as a candidate and after validation of these skills and obtaining this certification or qualification, are certified by this organization as competent and able to use the proposed service.

You then obtain a title justifying your knowledge and your product expertise.

Passing a Qlik certification can be useful or even essential if you want to become a partner, if you need to prove your level of expertise or if you want to validate your skills and knowledge. Certifications are intended to be challenging to make them a recognized certificate.

In this article we have listed the questions you may encounter during your exams reviews.

1- The different existing certifications and qualifications

Qlik currently proposes ten different diplomas, but what is the difference between certification and qualification?

Choose certification if you want to demonstrate your expert level of using Qlik Sense or QlikView. It will be required if you are going to become a Qlik partner.
The Qlik Sense and QlikView certifications are provided by Pearson VUE
You can pass the exam online or at a Pearson VUE test center according to the organization’s conditions. Each certification costs $250.
This certification is an expert-level exam for experts, Qlik Sense and QlikView data analysts, business analysts, and system administrators.

The qualification will assess your basic knowledge of the Qlik Sense product (no qualifications for QlikView).
You can take the exams for free if you are enrolled in the Qlik Continuous Classroom program or if you purchase a training course with a Qlik instructor.
This qualification is intended for QlikSense users, data analysts and business analysts.

Certifications do not expire after a certain date. However, it may be out of date if a new version of Qlik is released in the meantime, so it is advisable to keep it up to date.
