Get Tableau Certified at TC16

By Megan Fay, Customer Solutions Marketing Specialist

It’s time to put a label on your Tableau expertise.

Join the growing legion of Tableau-certified data rockstars and start getting recognized for your skills.

Tableau Conference is one of the very few places where you can take our certification exam in-person — and at an incredibly-discounted rate to boot.

TC attendees can take any of the four exams listed below on Monday, Thursday, or Friday of conference week. Check out the full schedule on the TC16 website.

Exams do sell out, so make sure to register early to secure your spot.

  • Desktop 10 Qualified Associate: You should have five months of working experience with Tableau Desktop.
  • Desktop 10 Certified Professional: You must first pass the Desktop 10 Qualified Associate exam before taking this exam. You should have nine months of working experience with Tableau Desktop.
  • Server 10 Qualified Associate: You should have about four to six months of working experience with Tableau Server. People who usually take this exam are system administrators or consultants.
  • Server 10 Certified Professional: You must first pass the Server 10 Qualified Associate exam before taking this exam. You should have nine months of working experience with Tableau Server.

A great way to prepare for a certification exam is to review the exam-prep guides for each test. The prep guides currently reflect Tableau 9, but will be updated to Tableau 10 shortly after it’s released. Check out the guides to get a general idea of exam details and level of difficulty.

Taking a classroom training workshop prior to TC can also help you prepare for the exams. You can also take a training workshop at TC to refresh your skills, but don’t rely on them solely to help you prepare for a certification exam. We highly encourage you to thoroughly review the prep guide and seek out necessary training before conference for any skills gaps.
