The SAS Global Certification program recently released a suite of credentials in the Data Science area. These three credentials are designed for individuals who can manipulate and gain insight from big data with a variety of SAS and open source tools, make business recommendations with complex machine learning models, and then deploy models at scale using the flexible, robust SAS environment. When a candidate has earned the Big Data Professional and the Advanced Analytics Professional credentials, they are automatically awarded the Data Scientist credential.
Check out the SAS Global Certification website for full details.

Can you offer the material to me also? I am a master student in statistics department in UofKY. Apparently there's no professor I know here have that access.

Right now, I only know of SAS providing materials directly to professors who are launching Data Science programs within their colleges or universities. We do offer individual students that 50% discount on the Data Science curriculum that would help you prepare to sit for the exams. Also, the SAS Certification Program does not require that you take the training before you attempt any of our exams, however, we strongly recommend training as a preparation path. I will make some additional inquiries on your behalf and get back to you or have someone from the academy program contact your directly. Thank you again for your questions.

I am looking for e-learning course on the below two courses. Can you kindly assist?
1. SAS Advanced Predictive Modeling (exam ID A00-225)

I am from Sydney, Australia.
If there are no e-learning sessions, what are the learning path that I should opt for these certifications?

Currently, there is not eLearning for the subjects covered on these exams, sorry. The exam prep tab on the certification pages lists the publicly available training options for each exam.
So, for A00-225, courses are listed here: http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/aap2.html#s1=3 (One course in this series, the PMLR course, is available as eLearning)
and for A00-226, courses are listed here: http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/aap3.html#s1=3
