I am interested in taking the SAS Statistical Business Analyst exam. In the FAQs section it states that a base programming certification is required for advanced programming exams. Do I need to take the base exam prior to taking the Statistical Business Analyst exam? Or are there any other prerequisites?
Hi: The Base Programmer certification is NOT required. However, the recommended preparation for the Statistical Business Analyst exam is Statistics 1 (which recommends the level of knowledge you'd have learned from taking Programming 1) and Predictive Modeling using Logistic Regression (which recommends the level of knowledge from Statistics 1 and Programming 2). Most of the candidates for this exam will have studied Programming 1 and Programming 2 before attempting these classes. They may not hold the Base Programmer Certification, but they will have studied Programming 1 and Programming 2 at some point. But to answer your original question, there is no requirement that you hold the Base Programmer certification credential. But we would expect you to have Programming 1 and Programming 2 level of knowledge and SAS usage before you attempt Statistics 1 and Predictive Modeling using Logistic Regression to prepare for the Statistical Business Analyst exam.
