Alteryx Certification Agreement and Policies

 

Protecting the integrity, security, and confidentiality of our exams is essential to providing customers with valuable, respected certification credentials.

 

Participants of the Alteryx Certification Program are required to accept the terms of the Alteryx Certification Agreement.

 

Candidate Conduct Policy

The Alteryx Certification Agreement includes a Candidate Conduct Policy. As a reminder, the following candidate conduct is expected:  

  • Keeping the exam and exam content strictly confidential – You will not copy, distribute, disclose, display, export, publish, sell, modify, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, translate, or create derivative works of any Exam or Exam Content in any form (whether oral, written, or digital).
  • Observing exam retake policies - You will not circumvent, or attempt to circumvent, the Exam re-take policy by registering under a different name or email address or bypassing any authorization or initialization systems.
  • Only using permitted materials - You will only take the Exam by Yourself, using only the permitted materials.  You may not receive assistance from another person, allow another person to take an Exam on Your behalf, plagiarize any Exam answers, or use any other materials, including unauthorized publications of Exam answers.

Any violation of the candidate conduct policy in the Alteryx Certification Agreement may result in revocation of any existing certifications and/or prohibition on participating in future certification exams and programs.

 

Exam Retake Policy

Candidates may retake Core and Advanced exams 7 days after the previous exam was completed. Creating multiple Community accounts to circumvent the required seven day waiting period between attempts is strictly prohibited. Candidates must wait 2 months between the first and second exam attempt of Expert and Mastery exams and 3 months between subsequent attempts. Candidates must wait 1 year to retake an exam they’ve already passed.

 

Recertification Policy

Certifications expire two (2) years after the date the certification is earned. The earned date is based on the most recent, highest-level exam passed. For example, if you become Core Certified in November 2017, and then pass the Advanced exam on March 29th, 2018, your Core and Advanced certifications will expire on March 29th, 2020.

To maintain your certification, you must recertify before the expiration date. Alteryx provides two ways for you to recertify:

  1. Pass the current exam for your certification status. For example, passing the current version of the Advanced exam if you’re currently Advanced Certified.
  2. Pass a higher-level exam. For example, if you’re currently Core Certified, you could recertify by passing the Advanced exam. Expert and Mastery certifications may be maintained by passing any additional Mastery or Expert exam. For example, passing the Spatial Mastery exam will renew a current Expert certification.

If you do not recertify by the required date, your certification will expire, and you will lose the right to use the certification logo or represent yourself as holding that certification credential. When your expiration date is approaching we will send a reminder email to the email address associated with the certification. It is your responsibility to monitor the approaching expiration date and fulfill recertification requirements even if you do not receive reminders. If you wish to regain your certification status after the expiration of the previous certification, you must satisfy all prerequisites for that certification as a new candidate. If you allow your Advanced Certification to lapse, you will have to pass both the Core exam and Advanced exam to regain your status.
