Exam Certification FAQ
Q: I registered for a certification exam. When will I receive a link to take the exam?
A: We will be sending out the exam link the month following your registration. For example, if you registered on November 15th, you will receive the link to the exam December 1st.
Q: When I pass a certification exam, what will I receive?
A: You will receive a digital certificate of completion and a badge on the Alteryx Community. To ensure that you receive the Community Badge, please register with the same email that is associated with your Community Account.
Q: What will I need to take the exam?

If you have not signed up for Community, sign up here. It is recommended that you have Alteryx Designer installed, but is not required.
Q: What should I do to prepare?
A: The Core Certification Exam Prep Guide and Advanced Certification Exam Prep Guide provide exam details, topics and tools covered on the exams, and a curriculum to help you prepare. See below for additional recommendations!
Q: Will my certificate reflect my exam score or number of attempts?
A: No, certificates will not reflect exam metrics.
Q: What is a 'passing grade' for the exam?
A: You will need to score an 80% or higher to pass the exam.
Q: What happens if I do not pass the exam after three attempts?
A: You will not be able to take the exam again under your current registration. If you would like to attempt the exam again, you will have to register for the exam for the following month.
Q: If I skip a question during the exam, can I come back and re-visit it later?
A: Yes, you can return to questions that you'd like to re-visit as often as you'd like during the exam. However, after you complete and submit your answers, no changes can be made.
Q: What can I use as a reference during the exam?
A: You may use Alteryx, the Community, and the web. This test is "open book". View the Alteryx Certification Policies for more details.
Q: Will I receive a breakdown of the questions I answered correctly and incorrectly after the exam?
A: Unfortunately, no. We do not distribute answers.
Q: When I retake the exam, will I see the same questions?
A: The questions in this exam come from a question bank. You may see some questions that you'd seen previously, but you'll also see new questions.
Q: Can I register for the Alteryx Designer Advanced exam before passing the Alteryx Designer Core exam?
A: No, you must register for and pass the Alteryx Designer Core exam before you can register for the Advanced exam.
Q: How long is my certification valid?
A: 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 certification 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.

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.
