Certification Policies and Candidate Agreement
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 Database Certification Exam, Pearson VUE will provide a printed Notice of Exam Completion report with a provisional exam result. After completing a Teradata 14 Certification Exam, Pearson VUE will provide a printed Notice of Exam Completion report that does not include a provisional exam result. Official Notice of Exam Results will be available from the Teradata Certification Tracking System within 21 days from your Teradata Database exam date.
After completing a Teradata 14 Certification Exam or Teradata Aster Certification Exam, Pearson VUE will provide a printed Notice of Exam Completion report that does not include a provisional exam result. Within 21 days from your exam date, you will receive an automated email notification stating that your official 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 credential information will be sent through postal mail only for Master Certifications. Certified candidates will also receive an email from Acclaim to accept and share your Teradata digital badge.
New Security Protocol
TCPP continuously works to enhance the security and integrity of the program. Candidates testing at Pearson VUE testing centers will 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 Teradata Certification Tracking System and in Pearson VUE’s registration system, to be referenced during future exam check-in. If you have questions about these security measures, please contact the Teradata Certification Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
