What is SAP Education doing to Safeguard the value of Certification?

SAP Education has worked hard together with the Certification & Enablement Influence Council (Advisory Council of SAP customers partners and Mentors) to enhance the value of certification and improve the exams. An increasing number of customers and partners are now looking towards certification as a reliable benchmark to safeguard their investments. Of course certification is just one of several criteria by which one can measure expertise; it cannot and should not be considered a sole marker of proficiency in an SAP solution. Real hands-on project experience years of acquired skills educational background - these remain at the top of the list of most hiring managers for organizations and project teams. The Global Certification team has achieved good results by focusing on increasing the value of certification in a number of ways including: tying our exams to valid job profiles implementing industry standard production processes and increasing our engagement with the SAP Mentors and the SCN community at large.

 

A caution against sharing exam questions

 

Unfortunately the increased demand for certification has brought with it a growing number of people who try to attain SAP certification through unfair means such as cheating using brain dumps to distribute exam questions and even the efforts of some companies to turn this into a business opportunity: attracting test takers who don’t believe they have the skills and knowledge to pass the exam by fair means to pay money for “exam questions.” These are often either SAP’s own sample questions which are made freely available or outdated questions but sometimes also real exam questions are exposed.  Any time a cheating incident goes undetected SAP is potentially putting its customers at risk.

 

Increased focus on test security

 

Over the years SAP found that exam questions are also frequently passed on to others out of less selfish grounds - out of a sense of “doing the right thing” helping a friend or colleague or just out of a lack of awareness of the need for security and the consequences this can bring. SAP also noticed that some people don’t even realize that they are risking their own certification status - and in severe cases legal consequences - by distributing test questions based on the Certification Agreement they sign before taking their exam. Regardless of intentions
