Everyone starts their data analytics career with limited knowledge and experience. Remember those days? The new Alteryx Foundation Micro-Credential is a great first step to start the journey. 


Students, professionals looking to make a career change, those entering the data analytics field, and managers who oversee individual contributors working with Alteryx Designer can all benefit from taking the Alteryx Foundation Micro-Credential exam. It’s free, online, on-demand, and open book. 


By bringing together foundational concepts of data analytics and basic Designer functionality, the Foundation Micro-Credential is the perfect place to begin for those who are not ready for the comprehensive Designer Core Certification. It’s also a great resource for individuals in the Alteryx SparkED Program. 


Alteryx SparkED is a no-cost program for learners in any field of study—because every knowledge worker needs the skills to question, understand, and solve with data. Through participation in SparkED, educators and students receive free Alteryx education software, as well as access to learning pathways, certification preparation, and a vibrant online community for support and career networking.  


Help someone get their data analytics career started today by sharing the Alteryx Foundation Micro-Credential Exam Prep Guide with them and encourage them to take the exam.
