PostgreSQL Certification – Did you know?
I was recently asked two common questions about Postgres certifications from EDB, and thought I would post the answers along with more general information which may be helpful.
Question #1 – How long are certifications issued by EDB valid, and do they expire?
Answer #1: The Postgres certification program from EDB issues versioned credentials that do not expire. They are valid for the version on which you were certified. For example, if you have achieved PostgreSQL Associate-level certification by passing the exam for version 9.5, that credential is still valid for that software version.
It is recommended that you continue to maintain up-to-date credentials and update your certification status on the latest software versions by passing the most recent version of the exam.
Question #2 – Are there any prerequisites for the exams?
Answer #2: The Associate-Level exam for PostgreSQL certification does not have a training class prerequisite however it is expected that you have experience with Postgres database administration, Linux, and SQL fundamentals. Also recommended is taking the related training course Foundations of PostgreSQL Administration. Exam topics are listed online with details. The Professional Level of certification does require that the Advanced training course be taken as a prerequisite, before attempting the exam.
Also, did you know?
I registed for the PostgreSQL 10 Associate certification exam but I haven't received any login credentials. How long would it take before I get those credentials?
Thank you for registering for the exam and for your question. I checked with the EDB Training Team and learned that exam credentials require 24 business hours for processing and delivery from the point of purchase. Please watch your inbox.
Best of luck to you on the exam!! I am sure you will do well.
@LInsko So, I did take the certification today and cleared it. I received an email with the certificate but I neither receive a badge nor the certification appering under my enterprisedb - My Training profile.
Thank you for checking on this and letting us know about the situation. My apologies for the delay in receiving your badge. I will connect with our training team and update you ASAP via email.
That's fantastic. Thank you so much for letting me know.
And thank you for taking the training.
Congratulations on your completion!! Nice job!!!
