Any free SAS certificate is available?

Post by Tanu Banerjee » Mon Feb 29, 2016 11:42 am

Hi,

I saw the thread for SAS cert, Information on SAS certificates required.

I also looked at the link in the post from enrico-sorichetti but I could not find an information on free SAS certification. If some one can help me to locate a free SAS certification it'll be very helpful.

SAS makes some pretty good money from certification, so I doubt you'll find many free ones out there.

If you are talking about certificates in SAS/Base and SAS/Advance I think there is no free official certification from SAS. They also don't provide any full free course. As Robert has said that's a paid thing, why should it come free?

If your aim is to get an official certificate, the only way I can think of is though SAS examination partners. For details, please see here: http://support.sas.com/certify/

Or

Try to search like "free sas certification" in google: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=free+sas+certification and you can be lucky with the first link.

This is from the SAS site, may be of your interest: SAS Certification Practice Exam: Base Programming for SAS 9.


Thanks,

Perhaps that is the reason I could not find a free certificate. Thanks for your reply.
