CrowdStrike Falcon Certification Program

Updates coming soon to the CCFR and CCFA exams

To ensure exam content aligns to the way our candidates use the new Raptor release of the Falcon platform, we will soon be launching updated versions of the CCFR and CCFA certification exams. Revised exam guides will be published to help you understand the changes to the exam. The recommended training courses for each exam have already been updated.

If you are currently working in the legacy version of Falcon, you can still take the current version of the exam and your certification will be valid for two years. If you have recently started using the Raptor release of Falcon or expect to begin using it soon, we recommend that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the new features before taking the updated version of the exam when it is available.
