The exams are all multiple-choice questions. If more than one response is required, the question will tell you exactly how many responses are required. Some questions will include an exhibit which should be used to answer the question.
The exams cost $250 USD each, paid for by credit card when you register through the Pearson VUE website. The amount will be converted into your local currency by your bank, because Qlik does not price the exams in multiple currencies.
Qlik Certification Exams are available in US English ONLY.
If English is NOT your native language, you may request an “accommodation” (additional time on the exam). BEFORE your schedule an exam, you must formally request an accommodation by emailing email@example.com. We will send your request to Pearson VUE and can take up to 10 days to process.
DO NOT schedule your exam on the web site. After your request is registered with Pearson VUE, you will receive an email with a phone number to CALL to schedule your exam. Extra time is NOT available in the standard web registration process.
No, but training is highly recommended. Qlik training is one of the first and most important steps for preparing for your certification exam. Refer to the Certifications & Qualifications web page for the complete list of Recommended Preparation Resources.
NOTE: The Qlik training courses are NOT certification exam preparation courses. Our training is the beginning of your learning journey.
The passing scores are determined after conducting a statistical analysis with Subject Matter Experts and reviewing the results of the beta exam. Each exam has a different domain and the variability of the question difficulty results in different minimum passing scores.
You must schedule for your certification exam on the Pearson VUE website. You will be required to create an account on the site.
IMPORTANT - QLIK PARTNER PROGRAM REQUIREMENT: Your Pearson VUE account must contain the email address associated with your Qlik.com user ID, your full name, and company name. This will ensure the certifications you earn are linked property to the partner company, and counted toward the compliance requirements of the Qlik Partner Program.
Bring two forms of ID. One ID must have your picture and signature (such as a passport or driver’s license); the other ID must have your signature (such as a credit card). Food, laptops, backpacks, notepads, pens, books, phones, pagers, watches and wallets, or other personal items are NOT allowed in the test area. Test centers provide secure storage space for your personal items while you are taking the exam.
Qlik certification exams are 120 minutes. There will be a timer displayed on the top right side of the screen showing the remaining time. You will also be notified 15 minutes before the exam time ends.
After you complete your exam, your result will be shown immediately. You will be notified by email when your exam results are loaded into Qlik CertTracker.
NOTE: Exam results take up to 24 hours to be shown in Qlik CertTracker, because Pearson VUE uploads all the exam results for the day in a batch during the evening time in the US.
BETA versions of certification exams are scored after 8 to 10 weeks. Your beta answers are scored using the operational form, which is typically half of the questions on the BETA exam. You will be notified by email when your exam is scored and the result is available in Qlik CertTracker.
Qlik CertTracker is the system used to manage your credentials you earn by passing an exam. To print your certificate after passing your exam, log in and click “Printable Documents”. To download the official Qlik Certification logos, click “Download Center”.
NOTE: Qlik CertTracker is a credential management system hosted by Pearson VUE and does NOT have the same login credentials as your Qlik.com account (unless you have specifically changed them to match). Use the Reset Your CertTracker Password link to recover your CertTracker login credentials with your last name and the email address used to register for your exam on the Pearson VUE website. If you no longer have access to that email address, you can still recover your account.
Next, you should log in to Pearson VUE and UPDATE your email address. The change will flow into Qlik CertTracker within 24 hours.
No, there are no expiration dates for certifications. Qlik releases new exams for every major release of the products, so old certifications are designed to “age-out” naturally and become less relevant over time. Qlik Sense has several releases per year and the certification exams are updated at least once per year.
The exams are refreshed for every major release of the products, so the differences in the exams are dependent on the features of each new release. The differences could be major or minor. It is up to you to decide how often to update your certifications. Employees of Qlik partners may have certain requirements to be part of the Partner Program– contact your Partner Manager for the latest compliance information.
Pearson VUE Test Centers have staff on-site to assist you. If a question cannot be answered or the problem cannot be solved while you are at the test center, ask the exam proctor to create a case to record the incident details, and then follow up with Pearson VUE directly to resolve the problem.
Yes, you should complete the Qlik Continuous Classroom modules listed in the Exam Prerequisites section of the qualification exam course pages, or the instructor-led training course PRIOR to building the application and taking the exam.
The exams are refreshed once per year so the differences in the exams are dependent on the features of each new release. The differences could be major or minor. It is up to you to decide how often to update your qualifications. Keeping up with the latest version is recommended.
