Hi VA community,
I was very excited to see a new SAS certification being developed, SAS Certified Visual Analytics Content Developer Using SAS Visual Analytics 7.1 Credential. You can sign up to do the beta exam which opens 18th March - 1st April at https://support.sas.com/certify/creds/va.html
I'm interested to hear whether your planning to do the exam and if you have any questions in your study preparation.

I have just been accepted to do this - not sure about exam preparation - any tips!?
Are there any example questions available?
03-12-2015 05:15 PM
Same here... Looking forward to it! Exam preparation tips can be found at SAS Global Certification program - exam preparation
It would be nice if there were sample questions. In the past, beta exams haven't had sample questions.

Michelle's link is a good link for preparation resources. In addition to formal training, the site also lists some reading material and introductory videos.
For beta exams, we do not have sample questions. We will have sample questions for the production version of the exam.

I am planning to give the certification on "SAS Certified Visual Business Analyst:Exploration and Design".
If somebody who has cleared this certification can share their ideas and the preparation they had followed to successfully get certified. This would be great help for all VA users who wants to do the certification.
Thanks in advance

I noticed you had posted your question a little while ago and was curious to know whether you've done the certification and/or would like assistance. I have this certification and would suggest your exam preparation to include:

I'm unable to register for "SAS VA Fast Track Course" when I change the Location it is redirecting to the home.
Can you share me the Proper link wherein I can register for the course.

Hi SAS Explorer,
What country are you wanting to see the SAS VA Fast Track Course for? From the home page, go to Training & Books and then select the BI path for the SAS VA course. Let us know what country you are wanting to do the course in and then a direct link can be shared.
Your question isn't related to certification and probably should have been in a new message thread. Please keep this in mind in future.

I'm from INDIA. After attending the Fast Track Course I would like to go for the certification.
Please share the link for BASE SAS and SAS VA certfication.

So no book available for getting this certification? Only few very sample questions? Any other tips?

My suggestions are: Gain hands on experience, use the product. Attend the SAS Visual Analytics Fast Track course and study the user guide very well.
Certification is an assessment of your practical understanding and use of the software to address particular data visualisation and analytic questions. Certification is not an assessment of how well you memorise sample questions.
