How to stay current with your certification 

FAQ : Stay Current With Your SAP Global Certification  

New to SAP Ariba?

To become certified in SAP Ariba for the first time, you will need to take the core exam. If the latest core exam, which is determined by the current release, is not yet available, you have two options: 

  • Wait until the exam is published (see schedule on the right)
  • Don’t wait, take the previous core exam AND the respective delta exam (even if it means taking both the core and the delta exams in the same quarter)

Already have an SAP Ariba Certification?

Once you successfully complete an SAP Ariba core exam, you will need to stay current and maintain your certification on a quarterly basis by reviewing the delta content and completing the delta assessment(s) for the solutions you are certified in. 

Take note of the release version of the certification exam that you are registering for (the last four characters in the exam code indicate the year and quarter). Based on the release, you will either be required to take the delta assessments immediately or you will be asked to start the following quarter. 

If you fail to complete a specific quarter’s delta exam for the product for which you hold a valid certification, you will no longer be certified and will need to take the respective core exams again to re-certify. Please note that quarterly exams and deltas get retired once the successor release is launched.

Please note that not all SAP Ariba exams are currently included in the stay current program
