The name of the certification varies depending on the expertise level, for example, SAP HR Certification for the first level is called SAP Certified Application Associate – Human Capital Management with SAP ERP 6.0 EHP4 (code C_THR12_64) or SAP Certified Application Associate – Human Capital Management with SAP ERP 6.0 EHP5 (code C_THR12_65) or SAP Certified Application Associate – Human Capital Management with SAP ERP 6.0 EHP6 (code C_THR12_66). There are differences in the software versions (EHP4 or EHP5 or EHP6), but these differences are not related to SAP HCM module.
