Exam Administration Policies

Exam Sequencing Policy Teradata Database certification exams need to be passed as defined on the Teradata Certification Track and the Teradata 14 Certification Track pages. Taking exams out of order is a violation of the TCPP Security Policy that will delay processing of exam results and may result in score invalidation.
Recertification Policy Teradata Database Certifications require re-certification before the expiration date of the previously earned certification. Teradata Database Certified Associate certifications expire five years after issue. Teradata Database Certified DBA, Advanced DBA, Developer, Advanced Developer, and System Architect certifications expire after three years.
