SAP Certification Cost

Last updated on , posted in · 103 Comments

SAP Certification CostOne of the important factors in making a decision about going for an SAP certification is the cost of registering for the exam. If it is your employer who pays the registration fee than this decision could be easier for you. On the other hand, if you incur all components of SAP certification cost by yourself, it is necessary to decide whether the potential benefits of SAP certification overweight its price. In this post, we will provide an overview of SAP certification cost that is often comprised of several parts (some of which are hidden). Moreover, we will see how the cost of becoming certified SAP consultant varies in different parts of the world.

SAP Certification Cost Structure

SAP Certification Cost StructureThe cost structure for SAP certification is relatively straightforward. In most of the cases, an individual only needs to pay the admission fee during registration for the exam. This fee is set by SAP Education and covers their expenses on developing and maintaining an up-to-date certification curriculum, rent of certification centers, and salaries of administrative staff. In cases when SAP Education outsources the administration of SAP certification to its authorized education partners (for example, Siemens or Pearson VUE), SAP certification cost remains very similar. Probably, SAP Education requires its partners to adhere to certain pricing policies, and therefore, prices for registering on the exam are the same among different institutions. However, the overall SAP certification fees may vary due to the fact that in certain countries SAP requires people to undergo mandatory training courses before admission for the test.

SAP Certification Fees in USA, Canada

We start our review with the North America. In USA, one can easily register for SAP certification online, by phone or through a visit to a certification center and it is going to cost from 500 USD. This is the price for most of the certifications at the associate level. In Canada, the same SAP certifications are a little bit cheaper: from 500 CAD. Everywhere in the North America it is possible to register for SAP certification directly without the necessity of providing a proof of the previous work experience or attending SAP training courses.

SAP Certification Cost in India, Asia-Pacific Region

The rules of registering for SAP certification are considerably different in the countries located in Asia-Pacific region that includes India. This difference is important and has to be discussed in more details because it directly influences the overall cost of becoming a certified SAP specialist.

  • To appear for the associate level certification without attending any SAP course you need a minimum of 1 (one) year of SAP implementation experience or 2 (two) years of support experience with a minimum of 6 (six) months experience in the module and version of SAP in which you are going to get certified.
  • The last year of your work experience should be with your present employer.
  • Your present employer should be either a customer or a partner of SAP.

If an individual fulfills the above criteria, he or she can directly register for SAP certification and the registration fee is going to cost around 40000 INR. One may notice that this price is higher than in USA or Canada. The situation becomes even worse if one does not satisfy the strict requirements outlined above. In such cases, SAP requires people to take several weeks of training courses from an authorized SAP training provider. Usually, the cost of these training courses is considerably higher than SAP certification fee because they last longer and require larger investment from the teaching prospective. Therefore, the overall SAP certification cost becomes ridiculously high as it contains both the training expenses and the registration fee.

SAP Certification Cost in Europe

The approach towards SAP certification in Europe is very similar to the North America. The cost of registration for an exam starts from 350 GBP in United Kingdom and Ireland and from 400 EUR in other European countries. One can register for SAP certification directly and does not have to provide evidence of prior hands-on experience with configuring SAP systems.
