Certification Policies and Candidate Agreement

We recommended that you familiarize yourself with all Teradata Certification program policies prior to testing.  This information can be found at www.teradata.com/certification/policies.

The Teradata Certification Candidate Agreement is the legal contract between you and Teradata regarding Teradata Certification. All Candidates must agree to the Candidate Agreement prior to beginning any Teradata Certification Exam. We highly recommend that you review the applicable TCPP Candidate Agreement PRIOR to your test date: Teradata Candidate Agreement.

Teradata Official Exam Results, Certificates, and Fulfillment Process

After completing a Teradata exam, Pearson VUE will provide a printed Notice of Exam Completion report. Within 3 to 21 days, you will receive an automated email notification stating your Notice of Exam Results document can be downloaded from the Teradata Certification Tracking System. If applicable, certificates and logos will be available for download from the tracking system. Hard copy credentials will only be mailed for Master Certifications.

Please note: Results for beta exams may take longer than 21 days and will be specified on your notice of completion.

New Security Protocol

TCPP continuously works to enhance the security and integrity of the program. Candidates testing at Pearson VUE testing centers will now have a digital photo and signature captured during the check-in process. This photo and signature will be stored in a candidate’s profile within the Certification Tracking System and in Pearson VUE’s registration system, to be referenced during future exam check-in. If you have questions about these new security measures, please contact the Certification Support at certification.teradata@teradata.com.

Cancellation and No-Show Policy:

Exam appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled exam appointment or your full exam fee will be forfeit. If you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment (no-show), and you do not cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance, your full exam fee will be forfeit.
