Validate your skills and experience with Talend products
Get recognition for your Talend expertise
Talend Academy certification exams give you a chance to assess your knowledge of Talend products, how they’re used, and the underlying methods required to successfully implement quality projects. Talend offers two types of certification examinations:
- Test-based examinations last an hour on average and include a combination of different question types
- Lab-based examinations are completed over two days in proctored online or onsite sessions
To participate in an exam, you will be required to register using Talend’s third-party testing provider and agree to Talend’s Exam Agreement Rules and Responsibilities. During the exam, your machine will be locked down via a secure browser that restricts access to screenshots, print functions, or chat functions.
Register for a test-based exam
You can take the exam on your own PC or laptop from any quiet location with an internet connection. Our secure online assessment platform ensures the value of your certification, and a remote proctor will observe your exam via a webcam to protect the integrity of the examination process. Registration and scheduling are available online at any time.
Talend offers an onsite Exam Translation service in a variety of languages using a 3rd party vendor. This process consists of using a translator to verbally translate each exam question to a tester. Candidates who are interested in this service must request accommodation prior to scheduling an exam by contacting Talend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Register for a lab-based exam
After you’ve received test-based certification, you are ready to take the lab-based professional exam. Lab-based exams take place over the course of two days, under the observation of a proctor. You can take the exam on your own PC or laptop from any quiet location with an internet connection.
In-person proctoring can be scheduled on-site in your offices, subject to availability for an additional charge of 30 Instructor Led Training (ILT) credits for groups of up to 8.
To register for a credential exam attempt, Talend customers should contact training administration, while Talend partners should visit the Talend Partner Portal Request Centre. Please include the names and email addresses of exam candidates in your request.
