- The "SAP Certified Application Associate - SAP Commissions" certification exam verifies that the candidate possesses basic knowledge in the area of SAP Commissions fundamentals and implementation for Consultants. It validates that the Consultant has good knowledge and understanding of how to implement compensation plans. Based on this knowledge, a successful Consultant is able to apply the acquired skills to perform a variety of appropriate implementation and customization-related tasks within a project team, and contribute positively to the success of a project. To ensure success, SAP recommends combining education courses and hands-on experience to prepare for your certification exam as questions will test your ability to apply the knowledge you have gained in training. You are not allowed to use any reference materials during the certification test (no access to online documentation or to any SAP system).
