Which courses are necessary for BASE SAS Certification

Are both of these courses recommended for the Base Certification?

 

1. SAS(R) Programming 1: Essentials

2. SAS(R) Programming 2: Data Manipulation Techniques

 

I have heard that the second one might not be necessary, but any advice or input is helpful!

Re: Which courses are necessary for BASE SAS Certification

Hello,

 

Yes, those are the two courses recommended on our certification web site.  I would highly recommend that you check out the information posted for the BASE Programmer at the SAS Global Certification website.  There are a number of good resources available there for you to use to help with your studies.  In addition,  I might also suggest checking out our webinar series for the SAS BASE Programmer credential.  Go to this link: 

https://www.sas.com/en_us/certification/resources/certification-webinars.html  This series covers topics that are tested on the exam. 

 

Hope you find this information useful.  Good luck to you in your studies.

 

Kindest regards,

The second one is definitely required. If you're looking for alternate sources I would highly recommend the SAS Certification Guide.
