• The "SAP Certified Application Associate - SAP S/4 HANA Sourcing and Procurement" certification exam verifies that the candidate possesses adequate knowledge in the area of Procurement to satisfy the requirements for the consultant profile. This certificate proves that the candidate can implement this knowledge practically in projects. The SAP Certified Application Associate can contribute to the success of the planning and implementation phases of the project in a mentored role and would typically have a maximum of three year’s experience in the solution area. Project experience should not be a prerequisite for a competent and well trained candidate to pass this exam.

General Information

Exam Preparation

Each specific certification comes with its own set of preparation tactics. We define them as "Topic Areas" and they can be found on each exam description. You can find the number of questions, the duration of the exam, what areas you will be tested on, and recommended course work and content you can reference.

Certification exams might contain unscored items that are being tested for upcoming releases of the exam. These unscored items are randomly distributed across the certification topics and are not counted towards the final score. The total number of items of an examination as advertised in the Training Shop is never exceeded when unscored items are used.

Please be aware that the professional- level certification also requires several years of practical on-the-job experience and addresses real-life scenarios.
