Splunk Certifications are an IT industry standard designed to validate knowledge of and demonstrate proficiency with Splunk’s universal machine data platform. Certifications range from entry-level to expert and were created to help candidates succeed and thrive in a competitive marketplace. Splunk’s Certification Program is still growing! When a new certification exam is being developed, eligible candidates have the exciting opportunity to participate in its beta phase. Beta exams are typically longer, don’t offer immediate test results, and are free to all candidates. The registration process is the same for all exams, regardless of beta or final form status. Becoming Splunk certified opens new doors in career growth and professional development. For more details on our programs please visit www.splunk.com/education.
Splunk offers two methods of exam delivery, as shown below. The same Pearson VUE web account is used to schedule or purchase either type of exam. Please note: all exams must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Both types of exams are subject to our cancellation and reschedule policies (see policies below for reference).
