The registration process does not seem to be difficult, but still a lot of people ask how to register for SAP certification test. That was our main motivation to write this article.

Welcome to the SAP world! You decided to become a certified SAP consultant and it is a good way to start your career in SAP area. In this guide we assume that you have already taken appropriate SAP training course, practiced with SAP certification sample questions, fulfilled certification prerequisites, and are ready to try yourself with the certification. Our guide will be focused on registration for SAP Certification in United States through SAP website (online). So far it is the most convenient way that is offered by SAP. Registration in other countries is almost identical with one big exception: there are countries where online registration is not yet implemented. If you want to get certified in one of these countries you should contact SAP Education by phone. We will talk more about registration by phone in the section Offline Registration for SAP Certification (see below). If you do not know whether it is possible to register for SAP Certification online in your country, follow the guide for online registration and you will very soon find it out.

Online Registration for SAP Certification

Step 1: Open you favorite web browser and type in the address bar Be patient, their website is slow. Which is strange taking into account that their ERP system is pretty fast:). If you have never visited this website before, you will be welcomed with a page where you can select your country and language (the background picture could be different, it seem that they are picked randomly):

Here you should choose the desired location and language. When you are done, click Continue. If you have already visited this website before, you can probably skip this step because you set your location and language earlier.

Step 2: On the next webpage you should click on Training & Education link:

It is a good idea to print this confirmation out and take it with you for the certification. Congratulations, you are done! And good luck with your certification, we are sure you are going to ace it :).

Offline Registration for SAP Certification

As we mentioned earlier, online registration for SAP Certification is not yet implemented everywhere in the world. How to check if you can register online in your country? Very easy, it can be seen from this page:

How to Register for SAP Certification: Offline

You see that instead of the nearest dates and locations the webpage says No schedule available in your country. What then you should do? Unfortunately, it is necessary to contact SAP Education directly by giving them a phone call. You can find their phone number in the top right corner of the page. For example, in India their number is +91 080 4082 90 00. So just give them a call and an operator will guide you through the process of registration for SAP Certification.

  7. Is the exam available only by following this certification process or can I study from a book myself and pass the test?

      It depends on a country because SAP has different rules for different regions. In most of the countries you can simply study from a book yourself and pass SAP certification.
