What is Certification

The SAS Certified Professional Program was created to recognise SAS software users who can demonstrate an in-depth understanding of SAS software. We are proud to offer the SAS Certified Professional Program — developed according to defined international standards and based on survey results and feedback from our users.

SAS' goals for the program include:

  • establishing a universal standard for measuring SAS software knowledge
  • developing an internationally recognised certification program
  • increasing the level of SAS software knowledge in the marketplace.

SAS offers five globally recognised certifications. Designed in tracks, each certification requires the successful completion of one or more exams to earn a credential.
